Deployable Repeater Profile
Deployable Repeater is a generic name for portable hacking range amplifiers. Manufactured by a plethora of telecom hardware companies with defense contracts, all models of this type of Repeater meet almost identical specs, to the point that the logo is sometimes the only distinctive feature in what is an almost standard design. Deployable Repeaters have been conceived so that they can be planted in a static position to cover a specific area with the signals generated by field infowar specialists. Nowadays, Deployable Repeaters are a staple of any strategy for infoelectronic supremacy, as they give non-specialist soldiers the ability to extend the operative area for tactical Hackers to ply their craft.
