The deployable ecosystem has evolved rapidly in recent years, with a variety of form factors that allow the swift establishment of communications networks during crisis situations. From traditional COWs and SatCOLTs to quickly deployable cell sites that can be delivered by truck, boats or helicopters—or even carried in a Pelican case or backpack—the evolution of telecom, satellite and alternative-power solutions let today’s deployables provide responders with unprecedented flexibility and performance in even the most challenging environments.
