Whether it is accessing the latest building plans on the go, or live streaming footage from body worn cameras, connectivity can dramatically help to improve scene management by creating a real-time picture of what is happening on the ground. An in-vehicle solution from Westbase Networks can deliver the benefits of 4G/5G for fire and rescue services, by providing a stable, reliable connectivity solution that rolls into the scene, ready-to-go, with the fire engine or rescue vehicle.
We’ve worked with over 40 emergency service teams across the UK and Europe to deliver in-vehicle networking – not to mention many other fleet and transportation customers. Check out how we did it and what they achieved by reading some of our case studies:
Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service
Norfolk Fire and Rescue wanted to deploy an ESN-ready Mobile Data Terminal solution across its fleet of 66 vehicles, click below to see how we achieved this.
Westbase Networks 4G/5G for fire and rescue solutions support these use cases...
In the field is also enabled by providing the reliable, secure connectivity they need – whether this be connecting personnel location equipment or enabling mobile apps which improve coordination between different emergency services.
The Emergency Services Network (ESN) will initially run alongside the existing TETRA network in the UK, and will leverage both commercial and dedicated 4G/5G networks to fulfil primary communication requirements. Westbase Networks in-vehicle solutions for fire and rescue services are ESN-ready, with many solutions already deployed in recent years being field upgradable also. These devices are either currently undergoing the approval process or have already been approved by the Home Office (please call for details).
