Mobility Zone, a portable cell tower sold directly to the federal government, for instance, can be deployed within 30 minutes. It uses one of two backups: IP or satellite. "There are some limitations to it," Barnes said. "It is picocell service, so it s a smaller cell tower. It will support up to 28 concur- rent calls and will also support EDGE services. So in terms of data, you ve got slower speeds -- 100 to 200 kbps, enough for e-mail, enough for some [Global Positioning Systems], certainly not video." The Zone is available in configurations including fly-away, vehicle-based or fixed and is managed by a white list that con- trols who can make calls. It uses an AT&T mast and antenna that reach 20 to 21 feet. Sitting atop a hill or building, it gets about a half-mile of service. The box is a little larger than a data router, a little smaller than a mini fridge, and will house up to two radios, Barnes added. It uses one of two aspects to get back to the core AT&T mobility network: via the satellite or your own satellite service or Wi-Fi or WiMAX or via the Internet with a secure virtual pri- vate network. "This thing looks, acts, like another cell site that we allow you to purchase and we manage on our network. The benefit of this is you don t have to wait. If we can t get there within 30 minutes, but you have an immediate need, you can set that up and deploy," Barnes said. Another offering is AT&T Satellite Augmented Mobile, a TerreStar GENYS Windows Mobile 6.5 smart phone that has 3G cellular and satellite capabilities, enabling users to keep their cell phone numbers and switch to satellite as needed. Additionally, AT&T can mobilize agen- cies solutions to ensure that citizens can stay informed by accessing government websites from any mobile device. But that s not as simple as scaling images. Device screen size, disparate back-end systems and immature consumer off-the- shelf mobile services are all challenges. "If the operation is disconnected, how do you keep that traffic alive?" Barnes said. In November, AT&T released Enhanced Push to Talk: a voice-over-IP service that is "lightning fast," Barnes said. "We have reinvented advanced Push to Talk." Highlights of the new service include: - tus of up to 250 talk group members. mobile radio systems. BlackBerry, Windows Mobile Embedded and ruggedized devices. Additionally, the company plans to roll out in the first quarter of 2013 a Push-to- Talk-over-Wi-Fi solution. Voice security There are several levels of secure informa- tion, according to federal classifications. Secret and top secret are the most protected while clear requires no special treatment. AT&T has options to cover all categories. Barnes said one of the more popular servic- es is AT&T Encrypted Mobile Voice, which includes a chip installed on a BlackBerry or Android -- and soon an Apple iPhone -- that enables additional encryption on top of what s already built in. "When you re making conversation, have as much security on that mobile device as possible," Barnes said. "It definitely is something you ve got to take seriously. You can t think, 'Oh, they don t want to listen to me. Unfortunately, you may be at the right place and the right time and your calls may be intercepted," she said. Encrypted Mobile Voice is a hardware and software solution that uses BlackBerry and Android devices and has an AT&T Trust Group enabling users to talk to any- one who has an AT&T device. It allows for roaming and supports 3G, LTE and Wi-Fi so users can make fully encrypted calls over a Wi-Fi connection. What's ahead AT&T envisions a time when the three items people can t leave home without -- cell phone, wallet and keys -- will be rolled into one apparatus. "Our plan is to have all three on that device," Barnes said. "You ll have access to your car, you ll have access to your home, to your buildings, etc., via some security built into your mobile device. The same thing is true with cyber banking. We want to make that as hardened as possible so that indeed it does become your wal- let. You have your identification built in that you can actually authenticate on that mobile device." All of these efforts point to AT&T s commitment to ensuring safe, secure and reliable connectivity and communications in any situation.
