As first responders increasingly rely on new technology, innovative deployable solutions are being used more often by public safety agencies to provide reliable and secure mission-critical communications, even in areas that lack existing network infrastructure. These assets, which include vehicle-based networks, can help give first responders the communications support they need when lives are on the line and every second matters.
From fighting wildfires in forests where network connections and coverage can be challenging, to the devastation and infrastructure damage caused by earthquakes, first responders need to be able to stay connected when responding to a crisis…and that is where deployable assets can be used to deliver a comprehensive suite of features and services, directly to the front lines of a response effort, to help first responders achieve their missions under the most challenging circumstances. Discuss some of the recent innovations in deployable technology and how it is poised to transform the future of public safety and emergency response.
