Communication is often the key to coordinating responses to disasters. From 9/11 to the Japan tsunami, keeping people on the ground in touch with the outside world can help to save lives and prevent further distruction.

AT&T has released a “cell tower in a suitcase” aimed at corporate and government bodies to help first responders to be able to immediately set up their own phone coverage in disaster areas.

Putting up a Remote Mobility Zone will allow up to 14 simultaneous calls and be able to transmit data at sub-broadband speeds. They will retail anywhere from $15,000 to $45,000.
