New Telstra SatCOW mobile base station


Telstra has unveiled a new transportable mobile network base station called a Satellite Cell on Wheels (SatCOW) using satellite transmission to fuel a Next G mobile network connection.

The telco says it can be packed in cases and transported in a station wagon, shipped as air freight, or carried in light aircraft. The telco will use it to provide rapid network recovery (under two hours) when existing towers are damaged, or during natural disasters or for permanent installations in remote areas.
