Here at Unmanned Life, we are addressing the current challenges in the telecom industry including the long-distance operations, obstacles with infrastructure or remote unconnected rural areas by deploying our unique Autonomy-as-a-Service solution operable over WiFi, 4G or 5G. The platform enables connectivity without the need of building permanent telco antennas creating the portable and capacity scalable connectivity. Furthermore, our cost-efficient Autonomous Drone Cell Solution [ADCS] use case is bridging the digital gap between unconnected remote populations. It [ADCS] facilitates ad-hoc telco services accounting for disaster response, urban emergencies or events with high-density of people.
‘’Our role as the technology community enabling the Autonomous Economy, is to ensure the progress of the current stage of the industry and to deliver innovative industry 4.0 solutions over 5G’’ Kumardev Chatterjee, CEO
