It was the rescue that transfixed the world.  Twelve teenagers and their soccer coach became trapped in a cave in Thailand for 17 days after flash flooding. Israeli company Maxtech Networks sent advanced mobile communications technology to rescue teams in Thailand, enabling navy divers to communicate deep into the heart of the 10-kilometer-long cave system. It was a vital piece of equipment that helped make the extraordinary and daring rescue of the boys a complete success.
