The core four technologies of connected response

In-vehicle solutions for police officers, EMS professionals and firefighters improve location and situational awareness, provide reliable and prioritized connectivity, create a mobile office or clinical environment and enable interoperable communications. The operational goals for your personnel remain the same, alongside the aim of enhancing the safety and well-being of first responders.

These four technologies are at the core of Connected Response for Public Safety:

  • FirstNet MegaRange™

    This high-power user equipment (HPUE) solution helps boost your signal at the edge of coverage for a range of communications and needs.

  • Router – FirstNet 5G Connectivity

    The foundation of all reliable and prioritized connectivity for Connected Response. FirstNet enables public safety to connect in areas where there’s typically little or no coverage and delivers greater uplink speed.

  • Smart Device w/ Mission Critical PTT

    A public safety-grade group communications service defined by 3GPP Mission Critical standards. Delivers group and 1-to-1 push-to-talk calling, location services to map or call team members, text messaging to groups or individuals, sharing of images, video clips documents and more.

  • FirstNet-enabled LMR

    Turn a local radio system into a nationwide platform using the FirstNet network. Provides additional capability, allowing for fallover and system redundancy in the event of an outage.

Above all, firefighters and their leadership require connectivity that effectively delivers critical information to support their mission of saving lives and property. This includes improving your squad’s ability to communicate with one another, with dispatch, other agencies and hospitals. It also involves reducing turnout and response times and tracking firefighter locations on-scene to ensure immediate extraction if they are at risk.
