Following the previous ESN approvals of Cradlepoint’s popular COR IBR mobility devices, the company’s Gigabit MC400 modem has also now been approved.
Cradlepoint’s Gigabit MC400 modem can be utilised alongside the Gigabit COR IBR1700 or COR IBR900 to deliver a dual modem connectivity solution. Its new ESN Connect Critical approval simplifies how emergency services can manage their in-vehicle connectivity requirements, delivering a family of routing options which support the full capabilities of the upcoming Emergency Services Network (ESN).
ESN Connect Critical delivers the highest priority connection over the cellular network in the event of congestion. At the same time, Cradlepoint’s Gigabit-Class LTE support ensures optimal connection speed. Bringing these two capabilities together across Cradlepoint’s mobility portfolio means that emergency services can benefit from a range of solutions to suit different requirements.
James Bristow, Senior Vice President EMEA for Cradlepoint said, “Cradlepoint has a long history of working with the emergency services in the UK and around the world, and we are committed to providing in-vehicle wireless network solutions that support the full breadth of ESN services. Our introduction of a new modular modem with Critical Data Bearer support is the latest example of our commitment. It allows emergency services to simply update their existing Cradlepoint infrastructure to be at the forefront of critical communication.”
ESN aims to ensure UK Blue Light Services have a wide range of certified and approved devices that meet their diverse needs and operational requirements. 300,000 frontline emergency service users will depend on ESN, using handheld devices or operating equipment in 50,000 vehicles, 115 aircraft and 200 control rooms. ESN will be an essential part of the UK’s critical national infrastructure and will enable the emergency services to keep up with the latest technological developments.
