Mobile Management and Security for First Responders

There are more than one billion vehicles on the planet and the number keeps growing. Managing them all is an increasingly complex task, often requiring communications with vehicles and equipment that are nowhere near any central office. Fleet managers need to monitor OBDII data from vehicles that may be hundreds of miles away. First responders need two-way communications with dispatchers and databases. Governmental agencies must track parameters like traffic density and road conditions from devices that are scattered all over their jurisdictions. Devices like traffic signage and parking machines need reliable links to their control centers, and if the installation includes video surveillance they will require good bandwidth as well. But in many cases, stringing cable out to the desired locations would be impractical or impossible.

Fortunately, cellular routers can provide reliable, high bandwidth, wireless data communications anywhere there’s cellular service. Where mobility is required, cellular routers provide that as well.

Cellular Success Story: Municipal Automated Dispatch Systems

Firefighters, police and rescue services depend upon wireless communications. Police need to check remote databases for outstanding warrants. Paramedics are far more effective if they can access medical histories and patient data. Firefighters often need blueprints and building plans. Better data lets first responders make better decisions. But traditional radio communications had limited bandwidth, and without TCP/IP support, they couldn’t be easily integrated with other systems.

Cellular routers are a dramatic improvement. They support the transmission of anything from audio and video to email and images. They support modern security technologies and prevent unauthorized intrusion into sensitive information. They’ll connect with modern data networking equipment as well as legacy devices like RS-232 fingerprint scanners and streetlight control terminals, thus protecting investments in older technologies. Versatile and wireless, cellular routers simplify communications with remote vehicles and equipment while simultaneously providing them with enhanced capabilities.
