Pakistani Researchers from the Information Technology Institute (ITU) Lahore have developed a portable solar powered cell network site. The team developed a running prototype in conjunction with a team from University of California. The network site has been named “Rescue Base Station” (RBS)
As the name suggests the network site is supposed to be employed in disasters like floods and earthquakes. In situations like these, cell towers usually stop working and the affected areas become a black zone without any mobile network coverage. The lack of mobile networks makes the rescue efforts more difficult but the new Rescue Base Station is supposed to solve that problem.
