Private Mobile Networks Ltd, the UK provider of private GSM network technology, has announced the immediate availability of a GSM in a box solution. The solution Rapid Deployment Unit (RDU) is designed to provide rapid deployment of a secure private GSM network when and where needed. Examples of application include:
The unit addresses the need to provide secure communications rapidly when an incident occurs. The network uses encrypted GSM ensuring privacy and standard mobile phones that have been registered to the private network ensuring other phones cannot connect without approval. The RDU can be used to enable local cover for fire, police and ambulance in the event of an incident where communication is lost or overloaded
Provides rapid deployment of a secure private GSM network to enable local cover for rescue teams and on site broadcast teams in the event of an incident where communication is lost or overloaded. Ideal for Outside News Broadcast or to support services such as traffic management and local council incident support. In addition to standard GSM mobile phone support for voice traffic the solution supports text, GPRS and Edge traffic providing the full range of communications options available on the mobile.
The units address the need to provide communications rapidly and to move the communications on quickly to the next site once a job is done. They provide rapid deployment of a secure private GSM network to enable immediate coverage at new construction sites, avoiding the delays typically experienced while traditional phone lines are installed. Calls between users on site do not incur call charges and a 6 month ROI is typical.
The GSM rapid deployment unit (RDU) is a plug and play unit; it takes less than 5 minutes to power up and provides coverage within open spaces of up to 500m radius unidirectional for site personnel. It is ideal for difficult sites where underground coverage is required, or where the steel frame or glass walling of the building infrastructure may affect the performance of standard mobile network signals. The GSM traffic can also be used to communicate with other sites and supplies over broadband IP network connections.
The network uses standard mobile phones that have been registered to the private network, ensuring other phones can not connect without approval. The unit is either battery or mains powered with over 4 hours standby. The link back into the public network can be made through the PSTN, satellite or line of site equipment. The unit contains an FXO Gateway as standard with the option to have a satellite router.
