COLORADO CORNER-TO-CORNER

In a debate of network vs application the answer is both. An Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model is a logical stack - 7 layers - with the bottom three layers forming the physical, data, and network connections. Then there are bits - 1s and 0s- that you plug into frames. Routing layer groups of frames together creates connected packets. At the top is the application layer - synchronizing the end user and the application. Mountain Wireless lives in the first three areas, forming the foundation of successful user and network experience. Doing it right from the bottom up make it seamless for end users.

Commercial

Commerce breaks down into sales and logistics. In logistics, supply chain management shows its fragility in how the information drives responses. To create high trust systems for customers, offices, warehouses, and retail services have to have a private network that is both secure and acts with immediacy. Every logistical step represents unrecoverable seconds effecting bottom line sales. If a retail employee, for example, finds out they're out of stock in blue shirts they need a way to seamlessly get that information into their system and create solutions. If not, the time loss effects their bottom line through inventory gaps, restocking, brand competitiveness, and beyond. A good, thriving business has to have liquidity and security in the relaying of information from request to payment. This is where mobile networks enter in.

There isn't one cell in commercial networks, there are many times hundreds of cell sites working together. A cell site can only support so many people, larger spaces with more people require more sites. The more sites you add, the more challenging it becomes as these sites compete for the limited bandwidth in a given spectrum. This complexity has to be appreciated from the start and meticulously choreographed. Experience and careful organization is what creates uniform performance on the site and visitor end.

Transportation

Smart cars translate to smart cities that ensure efficient movement of people and goods. As cities get smarter they are driven by data-heavy, data-intensive systems. Rather than the human operated traffic and transportation systems, we need to have real time information that is large scale with uniform quality of transmission. The ability to make safe computational decisions, combined with the ability to transmit that information instantly, is a nonnegotiable for a safe system.

 

Virtually every auto company on the globe is exploring smart cars and smart traffic knowing a successful system will be a unified system: to operate as failsafe with lives there has to be a ubiquitous, publicly controlled, protected, generally purposed network. The reality is that it's good to know where one car is but in this type of system you need to know where all the cars are. That requires a collaboration and technology at different level than it has been up to this point. Now a vehicle may be pinpointed, but it's traditionally been housed in a regional physical location that results in delays in transmission and scaling that to a larger level results in delays. It was to be a web environment rather than a centralized hub a spoke system we're used to.

The focus of any venue is letting people get the most out of the experience. The network is the backbone of that process, from authenticating tickets as they enter to ensuring the drink purchased from their seats is paid for and gets into their hand. Add into that phone calls, texts, purchases throughout the venue, social media, photos and video and the vastness of the network starts to come into focus. Dropped calls, inacessible media, and transaction failures create a distracted, compromised visitor experience. Venues have to be able to support all of these needs at the same time or their bottom line is effected. We've done our job when visitors are never aware of the network. Aesththetics are taken to heart to ensure that experience. Necessary equipment blends into the environment, is incorporated into existing structures, matches down to the HEX color and incorporated patterns. Security is important because it increases sales. When you put it all together there are thousands of network factors carefully placed and all working together to make sure the main event is the main event.

Military

Mountain Wireless's job within the military sphere is to make sure that their focus of "Mission First" is supported by our efforts. Being able to connect with their loved ones when they have the opportunity is a baseline necessity for the wellbeing of our military personnel. The armed forces recognize the whole person serving and the connection they have with their families, and understand that mission capabilities are affected by that connection. That communication very obviously has to be within the unparalleled security framework established by the United States Military. Military bases maintain mission readiness, and by creating a supporting network on base, these almost-cities are brought up to speed with the overall connection in the outside world. Working within a secure facility like an military base holds appropriate challenges for a far greater gain. Ensuring communication means eliminating the possibility of security breaches, and providing a partnership to support their mission.

Emergency Services

Two categories of networks: emergency and non-emergency. First Net, which is the government LTE network, is dedicated to emergency. Separate radios, spectrum and devices are dedicated to that network. Second net, for non-emergency, is used for every other network. With Second Net, priority is still given for first responders and emergencies - First Net can join and use a network for non-emergency users. Access to the networks is a given, making sure those lines are clear reliable is another. Networks have to be built to critical life-safety standards...the information has to, not only, securely get where it needs to be, but also requires continuous reliability so all information can be relayed. In an emergency situation like a natural disaster, creating a widespread network for first responders and supplementary services is an imperative. Without that, evacuating and emergency services for effected people cannot happen, nor can they or their loved ones be informed of their safety.

Medical

The medical industry has very tangentially significant issues as military issues and stand to benefit greatly from improvements. Telemetery, the act of gathering information and transportation it is definitely something in use today to track the vital signs of patients both in the hospital and remotely. They take this information and put it in your hands - securely and reliably. In the medical the tolerance for reliability is very, very low. The information has to come in real time without the questions as to whether there is an issue with a patient or connection. For MW is comes down to getting new kinds or large amounts of information transmitted from a source to a destination faster, more efficiently then it has been done before. Any one who benefits from information at their fingertips benefits from what we do. Advancements in robotic technology
