Cambium Networks said its technology was part of the cave rescue in Thailand this month, where 12 boys and their soccer coach were trapped for two weeks.

Wireless connectivity played a critical role in delivering reliable internet service that connected teams at the remote cave entrance, located more than 100 kilometers from Bangkok. At the on-site rescue command post, local telecom solutions provider KING IT worked with regional telco 3BB to create a hot spot at the cave entrance with Wi-Fi connectivity provided by Cambium Networks cnPilot e500 outdoor access points.

“Cambium Networks equipment helped provide Wi-Fi coverage at the cave entrance site during the rescue exercise, and we are very grateful to have contributed connectivity technology to this amazing effort,” said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO of Cambium Networks.

Users of the network included Thai Navy Seals, rescue teams and various government agencies, totaling about 50 users at the entrance of the cave. At the information tent, about 200 users included the immediate family members of the lost boys, as well as media and administrative personnel.
