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.

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