Rather than a Jammer...
Why not install a cell site in every prison to ensure any calls are routed through it?
Then all the calls from the prisoners (aka potential terrorists) can be captured & sent directly to GCHQ/NSA!
So the ASA takes issue when "Everyone" doesn't mean everyone but has no problem when "Unlimited" doesn't actually mean ... well, unlimited?
Business Continuity & High Availability
In any such trading environment, where they have plenty of (our) money to burn, I'd expect any sensible business to deploy both simultaneously and just use which ever was fastest for each message.
So 99% of the time they would have the speed benefit of the microwave link, but would fall back to the extra 0.99% availability of the fibre link rather than being down.
18,000 shipping containers. Now that would make Microsoft a bl**dy big floating data centre!
Power & cooling would be OK. Network connection might be a problem though! Undersea fiberoptic cable?
Interestingly, if it was in international waters, who would have juristiction over the data and applications hosted on it? Maybe it will be a "Mega" ship!
Would these CIOs be the same ones who take the advice of their own IT professionals over tech vendors?
No, thought not.
To paraphrase another Apple quote ...
Just move the town. It's no big deal!
Sadly common sense seem in short supply these days.
Remember the consultants/lawyers motto:
"If you are not a part of the solution, there's good money to be made in prolonging the problem!"
