AT&T and Cetacea Host ARMZ Demonstration
December 12th, 2012
In late October AT&T and Cetacea joined to host a live demonstration of the AT&T Remote Mobility Zone (ARMZ) portable satellite system.
The event was held at Cetacea's Memphis facilities adjacent to the internatonal airport and was attended by many mid-south companies leading IT managers and safety/security officials.
AT&T Remote Mobility Zone (ARMZ) portable satellite system can provide recoverable GSM voice and data equipment that can be dynamically deployed in a disaster area where mobile coverage has been disrupted. It can also be set up in any area where AT&T cellular coverage is not available, and where AT&T is licensed to provide cellular service.
Flexible and easy customer-deployable solution
AT&T Remote Mobility Zone is available in the vital first minutes of a disaster. The portable satellite system is always on, using VSAT and PSTN connectivity.
Fully managed service
AT&T Remote Mobility Zone uses a cellular spectrum that is automatically managed by AT&T. It detects potential interference and assigns the radio frequency with the lowest interference level. An optional satellite service is hosted and managed by AT&T.
- Operates using a spectrum licensed by AT&T—GSM phones “just work”
- “Instant on”—whenever the customer needs it
- Each radio can support up to 14 concurrent calls. Each picocell can support up to two radios (for up to 28 concurrent calls)
- Whitelist capability restricts general public access
- Easy to set up and use—typically in less than 30 minutes
