For FirstNet®

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.
