The company – which describes itself as “the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G Ready wireless network edge solutions” – says that the technology “effectively turns blue light vehicles into mobile offices with WiFi hotspots.” Using the solution, users will be able to connect a range of equipment to the internet, including laptops, smartphones, mobile data terminals (MDT), dashboard cameras, and body worn cameras.
Speaking of the development, head of public safety EMEA at Cradlepoint Peter Warren said: “Cradlepoint is committed to delivering best-in-class solutions designed to work in lock-step with the most advanced LTE networks. Nowhere is this more important that providing fast, resilient and secure wireless connectivity for emergency services personnel on the road.”
He continued: “For the last five years we have been working with the emergency services in the UK to help them move towards 4G LTE in anticipation of ESN going live in the future. Gaining certification is important for customers with existing products and also for those that have postponed decisions until ESN is closer.”
According to statistics issued by Cradlepoint, its solutions are already deployed in over 5,000 emergency services vehicles across the UK, prior to the roll-out of ESN.
