Prioritized communication is imperative to the continuity of modern business operations when facing adverse conditions such as natural disasters, cyber-attacks such as ransomware, or network failure events arising from human error. Highway 9 Mobile Cloud enables essential personnel to communicate when networks are degraded, congested or quarantined. Growing compliance mandates, with large attack surfaces that span existing enterprise access networks, can be mitigated using the Highway 9 Mobile Cloud. ​

Continuity in operations ​

Reliable communications are a must when natural disasters or man-made crises like ransomware attacks hit. Highway 9 Mobile Cloud and its virtual mobile zones (VMZ) can compartmentalize essential workers such as security, facilities and NetOps teams from the existing campus network, enabling them to continuously and securely communicate when issues arise. Highway 9 Mobile Cloud uses strong encryption, subscriber management with a hardware key store (eSIM), and strong point-of-security policy enforcement on all users and applications, making it the ideal transport for secure and continuous operations. ​

Isolated compliance networks ​

Air-gapped mobile networks deployed through the Highway 9 Mobile Cloud can reduce the time and cost of reaching regulatory compliance mandates. This mitigating control can be applied to PCI point-of-sale credit card processing and HIPAA healthcare scenarios where a separate mobile network avoids the need to put an entire campus network in scope.

Priority mobile service ​

The interference-free mobile spectrum can be leveraged for maintaining critical communications in large venues like stadiums and concert halls where mass gatherings occur, thereby avoiding the impact of congested Wi-Fi and carrier networks. In these highly crowded settings, the Highway 9 Mobile Cloud can be used to easily migrate key equipment like operating technology (OT) and critical users like executives to a prioritized wireless service.
