A Broadband Hotspot At Any Location
The T-50 all-purpose communications trailer, manufactured by Ground Control, can be quickly deployed at any location to create a high-speed satellite Internet connection and then automatically establish wireless access point for any in-range device. This all-purpose communications tool can provide essential Internet and phone five minutes after parking, and free up the towing vehicle to perform other tasks.

Low Cost Solution
The T-50 is our budget conscious solution for organizations that just require a transportable solution without the features of the T-100 trailer. Its durable design and lightweight suspension allow equipment to be securely transported into any environment. The reinforced locking cabinet houses a 6RU or 8RU rackmount case and an optional portable generator, such as the Honda 1000 watt EU1000 or EU2000.

Simple Operation
Operation is as easy as starting the generator, switching on the power inside the rackmount case, and pressing the "Deploy" button on the Toughsat TS2 ACU (Antenna Control Unit). The mobile satellite dish will deploy, lock on satellite, and automatically create a Wi-Fi access point for high-speed Internet in about 3.5 minutes. No other interaction is needed for full operation, and there is no special licensing or certification required to operate. Stowing the dish is just as easy... Just press the "Stow" button.
