Project Description

The customer is a multi-national construction management company serving many of the largest Oil and Gas companies in world.  They have business locations that are completely “off the grid” for power, data communications, telephone or cellular which are a requirement for safety, emergency, and commercial contact to the outside world.

This construction management customer required two primary abilities before they were able to commence with construction at their customers’ location. First, they required a “Safety Department” sign off which showed they could call out in case of emergency,

Secondly, they required that employees and managers have cellular phones that functioned in a territory without cellular towers. AT&T, in conjunction with Squire Tech Solutions, designed a complete mobile cellular tower which provides for emergency communications as well and day to day operational internet and data access over satellite.

The core of the AT&T ARMZ system is ARMZ Radios which allow for 14 concurrent calls per radio.  These units work in conjunction with the AT&T cellular network once they are routed over the Squire Tech Solutions 5 Mbps x 1.5 Mbps satellite Internet network.

The key system components are designed to be remotely serviceable via any high quality IP connection.  The AT&T ARMZ package was a natural fit to enhance the pCom® and target customers with remote site and emergency cellular needs.

Mobile flyaway and vehicle park-and- use is designed for the needs of first responders and critical infrastructure customers, but is available to both government and enterprise customers.

  • Entire System deployable in less than 10 minutes.
  • AT&T Cellular Phones to function without requiring handset changes.
