Airspan solutions give public safety agencies low-cost wireless broadband with high reliability for secure and real-time video, voice and data services
Public safety officials and first responders make critical and time sensitive decisions every day based on the information they receive. That is why it is especially important that the information they are receiving is real-time and available at all times.
Public safety organizations are constantly challenged to improve the efficiency of their personnel and systems by accessing new technology multimedia services in addition to the voice-only and data-only networks available to remote units previously. There is also a growing need for inter-agency communication which places an emphasis on standards-based technology solutions. Undoubtedly the accuracy and speed of information received greatly impacts public safety effectiveness. Terrorist attacks and natural disasters experienced over the last several years have further emphasized the need for mobile, flexible and advanced technologies which deliver improved communication in the public safety sector.
Airspan’s solutions meet the needs and requirements of modern public safety organizations. Several segments of the market can greatly benefit from these next generation Fixed, Mobile Wi-Fi technologies including: Police, Fire, Search and Rescue, EMS, Disaster Management, Border Control, Homeland Security and more.
