Natural disasters can cause up to $1 Billion in cell infrastructure damages and cripple country-wide cell networks, but the true cost can't be measured in dollars.  It's measured in how many survivors trapped under a fallen building can't call first responders in the area, or how many worried mothers can't call their children. Worst of all, these outages don’t last for just a couple days; In some areas it can take months for coverage to return. Beamlink tackles this problem by deploying mesh networks of small, portable cell towers that are affordable, power-efficient, easy-to-setup, and automatically connect to one another, providing an alternative to bringing in cell towers on trucks or flying in engineers to repair existing towers.
