If you are not familiar with cosplay, it’s a rapidly growing creative movement. Cosplay attracts many talented artists, costumers, photographers, videographers, and enthusiastic hobbyists who create incredibly detailed costumes, props, and artifacts that celebrate their favorite genres of comics, movies, television shows, books, and games.

The 105th Squad members support many charities around their three “hive” (chapter) locations in

  • Durham, North Carolina
  • Winston-Salem
  • Phoenix, Arizona

The members appear frequently in costume at hospitals, in parades, and other events as well as competing in competitions at events around the country.

The members of the organization rely on their Plum Case® Extended to provide high-speed data and voice wherever they need it. The unique patent pending technology uses world-class antennas that are molecularly bonded inside an extremely rugged case to capture usable cellular signals. The sensitive antenna arrays can capture usable cellular signals 20 miles or more from the nearest operating cell tower. The internal power bank can operate one or two cellular gateways for up to 2 days.

The Plum Case® Extended is just one of a complete family of rugged and reliable business continuity and extremely remote access devices.

In addition to serving as an access point for remote events, Plum Case® solutions are used for business continuity and extremely remote access by:

  • First Responders
  • Military
  • Hospitals and Nursing Homes
  • Construction
  • Oil & Gas
  • Retail
  • Schools and Universities
  • Small, Medium, and Large Businesses
  • Data and Call Centers

Lee Williams, head of Research and Development at Plum Laboratories, notes, “Our remote connectivity devices can pull in usable cellular signals for high-speed data and voice communications over extreme distances, even if nearby cellular towers are down or overloaded. But no device can capture and deliver a signal everywhere. That is why we have a fifteen day, money-back guarantee on every unit we sell. We do believe that our Plum Case® solutions offer you the highest probability of getting a signal of any connectivity solution on the planet.”

Organizations interested in testing a Plum Case® should contact John Deering, Head Technical Advisor at or call him at (615) 484-7255.
