Portable Emergency Communication Box – complete, compact mobile communication Pico-network in a handy, carry-pack for use in emergency response and rescue operations by public safety agencies
PECB-G123 is an integrated, small capacity, 3GPP compliant, completely mobile solution with battery pack, available in all standard GSM frequency bands, providing cellular services – voice, messaging and data - to standard GSM handsets.

With IP backhaul availability e.g. via a satellite ‘bgan’ terminal, Internet and VoIP operators’ services can be extended to private mobile users.

Multiple such boxes can network on a standard VoIP interface. Thus, multiple teams can have one box each in a single location or a larger team can have multiple boxes in different locations.
