One last SR update for a bit. How about an item?
Sometimes you need a router in the bush to start a small network. It doesn’t connect to the regular matrix, so it will not alleviate any problems from not having a network connection. But, it does eliminate noise penalties for network operations in its radius. It’s not protected unless you have a comlink, deck, or RCC to protect it, but it does get the job done! It has a range of 0.5 km per rating of the device. This can be mounted to a drone or car costing the space of one weapon mount.
