Loss of signal in a data center is a good point.  At a previous organization
I was slaved to, we brought this up with Nextel sales people.  After about a
week or so they purposed a small in-line receiver for the various data
centers, and a thin Kate Moss looking yagi for each roof.

Also, I can't stress the importance of a basic two way mobile system.  We
use the Nextel i1000+ phones for our engineering staff and NOC.  The
internet access features on these bad boys has been VERY handy.  The ability
for a NOC member to check MRTG/Openview type information and IMAP/etc. email
has been beneficial.

...especially since cell phones tend to get no signal in Data Centers...
