    While it’s easy enough to envision soldiers scaling battlegrounds with portable hotspots in tow, it’s a useless solution for warriors deployed to remote areas that have patchy service to begin with. Enter the KnightHawk 3G, a rugged network-in-a-box that cooks up connectivity in otherwise uncovered areas. The self-contained WCDMA network runs over the 2100MHz spectrum, promising download speeds as fast as 14.4mbps and max upload rates of 5.76mbps. It has capacity for up to 60 simultaneous voice calls and can handle 14 HSPA connections at a time. And it’ll help keep our troops in top shape — you can’t tell from the photos, but that thing weighs 45 pounds.
