Singapore is an extremely well-managed city state, and the country has grown to become one of the more prosperous nations around the world with everything running like clockwork there. Well, being small also means easy to manage, which is where StarHub, one of the major mobile carriers there, has deployed their first solar-powered cellular BTS-enabled vehicle. Also known as the Mobile ‘Greenergy’ vehicle, this van will offer temporary coverage in areas that are affected by BTS failure or perhaps to provide additional capacity in areas where the number of mobile users has increased dramatically without a permanent base station upgrade to cope with the increase. Alternatively, this van can function as a rapid emergency deployment asset, making it handy during accidents and disasters which might see a disruption in mobile communications infrastructure within an area. Boasting a quartet of solar-panels to make this a self-sustaining vehicle, it can power up mobile communications within an area of 500m for at least eight hours.
