Looking for suggestions - RAP + 3G/4G modem

Hello Airheads-


I am looking into a project that would allow our campus to create a hotspot beyond the reaches of the wireless network(outside in the middle of nowhere).  I came up with a solution that uses a RAP, a cell modem, and batteries.  Here is what I plan to use:


1.  Battery power

2.  RAP5

3.  USB 3G/4G modem with (important) External antennas


I have seen other posts with similar setups, but I am looking for other people's ideas/suggesstions on my requirements.  Thanks!

The Verizon UML290 3g/4g modem probably had the first and best support for RAPs.   I am only mentioning that one because I have the best and longest experience with that one and it works.  I am sure there are a number of others who would chime in with their favorites.

Answers and views expressed by me on this forum are my own and not necessarily the position of Aruba Networks or Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

My fav is ZTE MF821 - it is cheap and more important - easy available in my country.
