Dual Modem Benefits for the Emergency Services Network.

A key benefit of Westbase.io in-vehicle 4G LTE solutions is dual modem capabilities. The dual modem will allow vehicles to leverage both the ESN and another commercial 4G LTE network for maximised capabilities:

Load Balancing – By balancing the application load between the two modems, your teams can enjoy maximised bandwidth. While keeping their mission-critical communications running on the ESN, you can leverage the second modem to connect other, less critical applications, for example digital surveillance or asset tracking.

High Availability – The ESN will be highly resilient of course but no network can guarantee 100% uptime and coverage. For those who need to be sure that they can get connected in any situation, a dual modem solution is ideal as it can provide you with wireless-to-wireless failover in the event of network issues or moving into an area where ESN coverage isn’t quite good enough.
