The Chesapeake Bay is a beautiful and invaluable resource to the Maryland-Delaware region and beyond. Among its many roles, the bay is host to numerous active seaports, a venue for recreational and commercial ﬁshing pursuits, a destination for millions of annual visitors, a strategic gateway for maritime trafﬁc seeking access to U.S. shores and home to the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant.
Maryland Natural Resource Police (MNRP) is the enforcement arm of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), tasked with the solemn responsibility to provide for the safety and security of the bay itself and all that occurs within its waters. These responsibilities include, among others, homeland security operations, search and rescue teams, emergency medical services, education, and information and communications services – all on a round-the-clock basis.
With a fleet of approximately 140 vessels to cover
the Chesapeake Bay's sprawling 64,000 square miles, the MNRP relies heavily
on technology to successfully
perform its duties…
Distributed antenna system (DAS) designs are taking hold worldwide as avenues for providing coverage in targeted locations. Utilizing a structure similar to spokes off a hub in a wheel – with a cell site, or macrocell, as the hub and antennae as the spokes outward in areas of concentrated demand – DAS solutions typically can be shared by multiple operators using localized power.
While a DAS site may have less comprehensive capabilities at each site than a typical small cell, the goals are the same…
Admit it, cellular service is pretty good. In fact, in many cases, cellular service is very good. Mobile devices appear nearly everywhere and support all aspects of our lives. Still, we all have experienced poor service that is annoying or downright infuriating. You turn to the smartphone to make you "smarter" only to be disappointed by a painfully slow connection or weak signal. Whether a "Can you hear me now?" moment, the much-needed directions that refuse to load, the YouTube video on fixing a flat tire accessed from the side of the highway that will not play more than 15 seconds, or the inability to text in the break room, reliance on cellular connections is reaching epic levels.Consumers demand a hassle-free, cellular experience anytime and anywhere…
Keys, wallet, cell phone – most people don't leave home without them. Among today's consumers, the forgotten cell phone invokes the most panic. In a recent Pew Research Center study, 30 percent of individuals surveyed described their phone as "something they can't imagine living without." Mobile devices, speciﬁcally smart phones and tablets, have become the mission control center for managing all aspects of life.
When it comes to multitasking, smart phones excel. Think of the many roles that a smart phone plays: it is a phone, a GPS system, a ﬁtness trainer, a camera, a travel agent and much more…
Television viewers have come to rely on The Weather Channel (TWC) for up-to-the-minute weather reports. Earlier this year, NBC Network News engineers needed specialized antennas to support an unusual undertaking that would broaden TWC coverage of severe weather events during tornado season.
NBC was custom-building specialized vehicles for its "Tornado Track 2014" ﬁeld expedition. The show provides live television remote broadcasts from Tornado Alley, that area of the United States where tornadoes most frequently occur, particularly in parts of Texas and Oklahoma…
