onBoard mobile gateway for emergency service vehicles

In Motion Technology : 13 November, 2007  (New Product)
Improved connectivity and vehicle on board networking using onboard Mobile Gateway from In Motion Technology
In Motion Technology has announced that its onBoard Mobile Gateway not only provides leading edge connectivity and interoperability for the emergency services today, but is ready for use in a nationwide 700 MHz public safety network planned in the US.

"While a national 700 MHz network may still be years away, In Motion Technology solutions are ready today," said In Motion CEO Kirk Moir. "We designed our onBoard Mobile Gateway to be 700 MHz-ready to help the nation's first responders achieve true connectivity and interoperability today and for years to come. First responders across America are using our technology to enable their current data and communications devices to be interoperable and connected at critical times. The recent test now proves that the onBoard Mobile Gateway will enable those same devices - in police, fire and EMS vehicles today - to work on the planned 700 MHz public safety network."

During a live trial in Washington, DC, the onBoard Mobile Gateway switched seamlessly between EVDO and 700 MHz, a portion of the radio frequency spectrum that is due to be auctioned off by the Federal Communications Commission early next year. A portion of the frequency - considered ideal for wireless broadband communications - has been set aside by the government for use by police, firefighters and emergency medical personnel.

In Motion Technology's onBoard Mobile Gateway creates a vehicle area network (VAN) that supports multiple devices and applications simultaneously over any wireless network, automatically finding the most effective one available - whether cellular, 3G, 4.9GHz or 700 MHz - in order to send voice, video and data from a moving emergency vehicle. The gateway can handle data from a full range of emergency services devices, including laptops, ECGs, surveillance cameras, RFID devices and emergency vehicle diagnostic tools. The system is currently deployed in more than 70 communities nationwide.

"We want to ensure that when the nationwide 700 MHz network becomes a reality, the nation's first responders will have access to a proven, cost-effective communications system without having to replace all of their existing data devices," said Moir. "In the meantime, more than 70 first responder organisations are currently using the onBoard Mobile Gateway to serve their communities and save lives."
