The 'client provided Cellular-connected Wireless' network equipment in question were Cradlepoint routers, which I had never heard of before.
It uses cell service to have an internet connection, to connect 11 laptops for student testing.
I'm not sure the client name was ever said, but it was some group in charge of testing students for a state test. I set up the network in a YMCA that had been delegated to storage after the hurricane.
The equipment was easy to set up, though there was one router that needed more hardware components replaced and solved, as it never could pick up the actual cellular signal. There were plenty of other routers to work with.
Laptops were Windows 10 Netbooks that, with a bit of finangling, connected to the appropriate router. Credentials were given through clicking the specialty browser and the testing sites were set up.
