Disaster recovery work demands facing challenging situations and environments — including extreme weather at times. Now, with the new AT&T all-weather Flying COW (Cell on Wings), first responders and field technicians have a new tool on the way to help speed recovery work in the toughest of environments.
AT&T is leading the way in the telecommunications industry in the commercial use of drones. We’ve spent over two years exploring ways drones can increase AT&T technician safety and assist AT&T technicians with more efficient network updates and repairs.
The Flying COW, or Cell Tower on Wings, is an exciting next step in how AT&T plans to use drones to bring strong wireless connectivity to those who need it most. The Flying COW functions like a cell site on a drone which, once airborne, is designed to provide LTE wireless coverage from the sky to a designated area on the ground.
