As much as access to the internet might seem ubiquitous in today’s information age, it’s not true for about half of the world; the latest statistics indicate that about 45% of the world does not have access to internet connectivity. Therefore, the internet backpack is a solution to bridge the internet connectivity gap among cities and remote areas across the world.
The backpack is fully self-powered: it comes with a large lithium ion battery, a car charger port, and solar charging capabilities. The satellite internet connectivity is provided through an Satellite Enabled Wi-Fi hotspot.

Communications for Emergency Situations
In any emergency, the internet backpack allows users to connect for e-mail or make emergency phone calls and even send text messages. Providing emergency communications is the core focus of the backpack and mission for ImCon (Immediate Connections).
In fact, this backpack has been tested at active volcano Mt. Nyiragongo (an 11,380-foot-high summit) to determine how well the Internet connectivity and off-grid emergency communications functioned. Various communication devices were taken along with the internet backpack, however all communication devices were unavailable expect to backpack which continued to communicate with other ImCon units.
Satellite Enabled Wi-Fi Hotspot
The satellite enabled wi-fi hotspot is integrated into the IMCON backpack, to provide satellite connectivity to multiple devices, at the same time, and extend global commmunications to even remote locations.
Global Position System (GPS)
The GPS capabilities enables users to relay their precise location, as well as the location of other resources to those using the network.
For the millions of student who are unable to access the internet, at school or home, the IMCON backpack is a low-cost solution to join the global community. The IMCON Educational backpack provides connectivity for schools, often underfunded and far from communication infrastructure.
Pesonnel working for emergency response services, require connectivity everywhere and anywhere to help when a disaster strikes. The IMCON Emergency Response backpack can provide communication to those affected during disasters, to enable fast and efficient internet access and connectivity.
Survival Online Services
The IMCON SOS backpack ensures that users can connected to the rest of the world, when they venture deep into the wilderness or away from communication infrastructure in urban areas. Carrying the backpack is essential to be able to contact friends and family, but also authorities if an emergency situation arises.
Internet of Things
For those looking for technologically advanced communications, the IMCON Internet of Things backpack offers edge-based connectivity for external devices for bi-directional communications. This is essential for markets facing the challenge of remote location and require a high-level of security, from agriculture to telemedicine.
