Mobile Management and Security for First Responders

The Challenge

Firefighters, police and rescue services depend upon wireless communications. Police officers check remote databases for outstanding warrants. Paramedics need to 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 have limited bandwidth and are difficult to integrate with other systems.

Fortunately, industrial LTE routers provide reliable, high-bandwidth, wireless data communications anywhere there’s cellular service. Where mobility is required, LTE routers provide that, too.

The Solution

LTE routers, such as the SmartFlex LTE router from B+B SmartWorx powered by Advantech, support the transmission of anything from audio and video to email and images. LTE routers support modern security technologies and prevent unauthorized intrusion into sensitive information. They connect with modern data networking equipment as well as legacy devices, such as 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.
