The PSCR team in Colorado leverages our deployables to help set up demonstration or temporary networks to showcase public safety broadband networks at work. They discuss deployables recently in a NIST blog entry, the “Rapidly Deployable Public Safety Research Platform” is powered by our deployable system and showcases potential users how enabling broadband can be reliable and easy!
Earlier in May our team supported the XPSLTE 2016 event hosted by Firstnet Colorado. Here’s a recap video that the Firstnet Colorado team posted recently.
We’re not done yet, next month in October, Star Solutions will be exhibiting deployable broadband Band 14 LTE network equipment at IACP San Diego (Booth 3756).
