The temperature controlled MGX container was developed after one of the largest telecom companies in the world asked VRR to come up with a solution for their global disaster recovery service. The company needed to be able to deploy and airlift rapidly a dedicated team of people to recover voice and data service network elements in an affected area. A specialised rapid deployment container.
The MGX container enables the emergency recovery team to transport all the telecom equipment required to recover a destroyed site using specially designed technology trailers. Each of these containers has self-contained or dedicated power and environmental capabilities, and each houses a component of the network technology that would normally be part of a permanent office. Once on site, the individual components are interconnected to match the unique configuration of a heavily damaged or destroyed central office.
The container, which is based on a 20ft (PGA) pallet footprint, is insulated and has built-in interfaces for the electronics that are installed on site. Basically, it provides accommodation for high-end routers and other electronics for use by the emergency recovery team. Of course, all this sensitive equipment generates tremendous heat, so the inner compartment in built in such a way that it protects the equipment from the outer elements but, being a cool container, also has adequate cooling capacity.
