Our recent disaster here in Texas with Winter Weather has given us the opportunity to capitalize on the need for continuity of government operations. While some of that may be achieved through hardware upgrades in facilities, some of it needs to be handled as adding network resilience in remote locations (homes) of our essential personnel. We deployed several PERC units built by Comprehensive Communicaiton Solutions https://www.comprehensivecom.net/perc/ and they worked, but we realized we need a smaller more semi-permanent and aesthetically pleasing unit for deployment.
I would like to propose that Peplink create a product that is similar to the MAX BR1 PRO with Band 14 connectivity support on the FirstNet service in a product that fits within the decorative environment of our elected officials. Essentially something that looks great for in home use. What I would like to do is be able to hand them a product to take home, plug into their LAN port on their home router and have FirstNet operational as well with SpeedFusion.
We are also working on power support for these “Continuity of Government Operations” and I would like to see simple Wall-Wart type power supply used as main power and support a secondary DC source for emergency add on. The device should have in my mind the following capabilities:
Gigabit WAN Interface
Gigabit LAN Interface x4
POE LAN for Cisco type phones
802.11 Wi-Fi (latest standards)
LTE-5G Support and be FirstNet Certified
Small Form Factor with integrated antennas similar to many home network routers
Support high speed throughputs for VPN capability, phone support, Wi-Fi calling, Zoom/Teams/WebEx meetings
Dual Power capable (Wall-Wart DC supply for normal operations, DC input for backup power supply).
I believe this product would be a great asset to your portfolio and would help not only government but also the corporate executive world as well. If priced right it could be used by education, health, or even RVers.
