Israeli startup Vorpal is collaborating with AT&T and Microsoft to test how edge computing could equip them with the ability to track thousands of drones at any given time.
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.
