miniCRD™ for FirstNet®, Built with AT&T

Create your own FirstNet Band 14 Cellular and Wi-Fi hotspot, even in the most remote environments. 

The miniCRD™ is a highly portable FirstNet Deployable System contained in two ruggedized cases. It generates an area of FirstNet cellular and Wi-Fi coverage, when and where it’s needed.

Technical Resources

In response to the occasional need for outside expertise with radio or network systems, including router advanced configuration and security settings, below we provide a list of contacts available on a paid fee basis directly arranged by and between you and the provider. At your option this can assist you with advice, or in rare cases on-site technical service needs. In every case having a confirmed and active Ethernet connection available to plug in the PodRunner® will be a prerequisite for any type of remote or on-site help. After you can assure and have tested your connection to the internet (using another device besides the PodRunner®) we recommend you contact one of the providers below, or find a local equivalent to help you with implementation needs.
