The PTI system employs several of our proprietary technologies to provide continued communications during times of degraded network conditions. The client's location will have PTI nanoCELL Transponders installed to provide complete in-building cellular telephone coverage. A roof mounted satellite up/down link will be installed to provide a communication path through our Network operations center and terminated to Internet/public telephone network for communications anywhere in the world. PTI provides non-pre-emptible satellite access 24/7 to enable our clients to communicate from anywhere to anywhere.
Small Cell Solutions
Persistent Telecom (PTI) has successfully deployed small cell networks since 2002. Our systems provide cell phone network extension to commercial carriers where coverage and capacity are lacking. Our systems are designed to meet Department of Defense (DoD) standards; with hundreds of systems deployed to the federal and military markets. PTI systems can be configured to support all standards of cellular transmission including CDMA, GSM, 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE. Persistent Telecom is an MVNO with two Tier 1 Network Operations Centers connected to the Global Roaming Alliance.
The Persistent Telecom nanoCELL system can provide a full cellular command post operation in less than 5 minutes. Developed for the Department of Defense, The PTI nanoCELL provides cellular telephone coverage of 1 square mile for first responders and law enforcement at the scene of catastrophic events. The PTI nanoCELL provides cell coverage to only the first responders and law enforcement participants registered on the system. The nanoCELL captures all E-911 calls and routes them directly to local command center/first responders for immediate search and rescue. The nanoCELL is entirely self-sufficient and can be powered from internal batteries, 12 volt car power and AC power. Additional capability of connecting to the public telephone network can be achieved with the optional satellite antenna which connects to the PTI Network Operation Center.
Secure Collaboration Solutons
When hosting a meeting or strategy session or any other onsite event it is typical to provide an SSID and a password for participants to use WiFi for internet connectivity. This practice, while necessary, can provide potential attackers access to your company’s core network. CyberVauLTE can create a private network that includes WiFi and LTE for data and 3G for voice and text. Collaboration within the space is handled by the CyberVauLTE desktop device. CyberVauLTE can create a private VPN through Persistent Telecom’s internet gateway by using a DHCP enabled ethernet port on your network or through Persistent Telecom’s satellite backhaul.
Remote and Rural
In locations not served with cellular service, the nanoSAT, man portable system can be deployed in less than 5 minutes. The system provides local cellular and SMS text communications for approximately 1 square mile and has connection to the public telephone network via a satellite link through the PTI network operations center.
Wireless communications on large ships has always been a challenge. Persistent Telecom’s nanoSEA systems leverage lessons learned providing shipboard coverage for the US government. Now available to cruise operators - nanoSEA network installations are a dramatically lower cost alternative to the legacy mobile phone systems currently in use. Persistent has established connectivity to more than 1800 Mobile Network Operators through direct roaming agreements and contracts with the world’s largest roaming service hubs. Technically, nanoSEA systems include GSM, CDMA, 3G and LTE data. From a revenue perspective, Persistent Telecom offers passengers lower prices for their voice, text and data use; while at the same time, provides cruise operators with a more generous revenue share. As has always been the case in telephony, lower costs to customers increases call volume, which results greater profit margins for the carriers.
The challenge for the energy industry is the real time monitoring of the electrical grid's condition, equipment readiness, and delivery of power to the customer. PTI can custom engineer communication solutions for monitoring of sensors and data which indicate system conditions and delivery. A typical communication solution may include, multiple cellular transponders in a mesh configuration with Wi Max network deployment. These remote transponder sites can be collected and back hauled over non-pre-emptible satellite transponders to remote command centers.
Search and Rescue
First responders and law enforcement officials have multiple challenges at the scene of a catastrophic event. Coordination of rescue efforts is often difficult when police, fire and EMT do not have coordinated radio frequencies to communicate on. PTI solves this challenge with PTI's nanoCELL technology which provides a cellular communications "bubble" for these first responders to communicate with each other on their own cell phones. Communications to remote locations are enabled with the addition of the optional satellite antenna. PTI provides satellite up/down link services through it's Network operations center which facilitates connection to the Internet and public telephone network. The old adage of a picture is worth a thousand words is particularly true when dealing with a catastrophic event. The PTI nanoLTE communications system allows real time transmission of still pictures and video for situational awareness by the local control center. The search for survivors is always a difficult task when there is no way to know how many people were involved in the event. PTI solves this challenge with the PTI nanoCAST system. The nanoCAST system provides 2 critical functions. The system can detect all the cell phones at the event site to determine how many people to look for and it can send text messages every phone to alert them that help has arrived. All of the aforementioned PTI systems are supplied in a rugged travel case and are man portable at less than 10 pounds each. Each of the systems can be deployed and operational in less than 5 minutes.
Private Mobile Networks
Developed for the Department of Defense, the PTI nanoSAT system can provide a cellular network in less than 5 minutes. The man portable system allows the operator to establish a private cellular network that excludes all calls of those not registered as users on the system. The system has a coverage area of approximately 1 square mile. First responders, law enforcement and emergency medical personnel can all use their own cell phones to make and receive calls to anyone in the cell coverage area as they would normally would. Calls to locations outside the coverage area would be linked via satellite to the PTI network operations center and terminated to the Internet/public telephone network.
Cell on Wheels (COW)
The Cell on Wheels is a self-contained mobile communications platform capable of supporting cellular, Wi-Max and LTE communications, without connection to the electrical grid. Built on a Mercedes Smart Car chassis, the nanoCOW provides emergency communications for weeks at a time without need for refueling. The nanoCOW is equipped with solar cells, wind turbine and the internal Mercedes motor to allow powering of the communications platform. The nanoCOW is integrated with a smart control system that alerts the command center of operational conditions and allows the car to be remotely controlled via a smart phone App to replenish the deep discharge marine batteries with power when needed.
Advanced Surveillance System
This system is a video surveillance system and is comprised of thermal imaging cameras which target specific locations of interest. Utilizing Cellular technology, the system can detect, notify and verify the identity of persons within the area of interest. The system utilizes cellular communication to read the cell phone or RFID tag and compare the identity to known persons in the system's database. This allows monitoring and tracking of personnel and assets. Video delivery is real time and can be recorded for playback at a later time.
Persistent Telecom has designed and built systems with multiple sensors that can identify when a cell phone is nearby. Systems can be installed indoors or outdoors. Once the location of a cell phone is determined, relevant messages can be sent to those cell phones for public safety, advertising or coupons. Data analysis of cell phones located in a given area, at a given time, is relevant for public planning, safety, market analysis, etc.
