Optimising Field Operations with 4G LTE for the Emergency Services


Session Synopsis:

In this interactive session, we will explore how 4G LTE can be successfully leveraged by the emergency services to improve their field operations. It will be presented by Dan Robinson, who previously served as Chief of Police for Lincoln Charter Township (now retired) amongst other police roles in Cass Co Sheriff’s Department, and is now Regional Sales Manager for Public Safety at Sierra Wireless. Looking at both in-vehicle and temporary/rapid site deployments, we will demonstrate the power of reliable, fast connectivity by exploring these use cases and their benefits for the services. We will also present content from one of our existing emergency services customers, South Wales Police, so that attendees can witness the improvements that this prominent and geographically-diverse force were able to achieve with Sierra Wireless and Westbase.io. We will also look at ESN-readiness and open up the floor to your questions.
