USE CASES


Portable, lightweight and rugged, Big Box is equally at home with a small mobile team in the field using satellite backhaul, providing cost-effective internet access in a busy community centre over 4G, or serving as a central hub for a refugee camp of over 10,000 people.

EQUIP MOBILE TEAMS IN THE FIELD WITH EASY-TO-USE POWERFUL WI-FI

From a recon team assessing earthquake damage to a mobile library providing information services to rural communities, mobile teams work best when they have secure internet access and can provide open access for general users.

Big Box fits in a small backpack and can create secure and high capacity Wi-Fi in less than a minute. No technical expertise is required and the system is remotely manageable. Big Box is flexible, able to use 4G, satellite or microwave backhaul as the situation demands.

EASILY BUILD SCALABLE WI-FI NETWORKS, ANYWHERE

From a camp for people displaced by flooding to an unconnected rural school, organisations often need to deploy internet access at different scales in situations without developed connectivity infrastructure.

Big Box enables the rapid deployment of high quality internet access for tens to thousands of users in any environment.

These networks are cost effective: quick to put up, quick to take down. They are easy to expand, they control commodity hardware and they are data efficient.

GUARANTEE HIGH QUALITY INTERNET IN ALMOST any situation

From a temporary UN office in a town centre to a remote operations headquarters, reliable internet is vital for both day-to-day operations and unforeseen emergencies.

Big Box can combine up to 6 different slow or unreliable internet inputs to create a fast and reliable connection that can support multiple Wi-Fi and wired networks.

If teams are forced to evacuate a building, Big Box can be taken to provide an extra layer of communication and security.
