Transforming Public Safety with IoT-Enabled Solutions

Police, fire and emergency medical services (EMS) protect the health and safety of citizens. Initiatives such as FirstNet, which bring public safety systems into the Internet of Things (IoT), puts new tools in the hands of these professionals, so they can act faster and more effectively.

In the past, connected applications relied on laptops or separate wireless connections. Today, a single, secure and highly reliable wireless broadband connection can support multiple applications, empowering first responders in the field, helping agencies manage fleets and resources, or law enforcement teams to monitor offenders more cost-effectively.

Sierra Wireless has more than 20 years of experience helping public safety organizations deploy reliable and cost-effective wireless solutions. We provide complete router and management solutions and are industry's first vendor to deliver a FirstNet Ready™ in-vehicle router for First Responders that supports the new Band 14 spectrum.

We also offer a turnkey, end-to-end offender monitoring solution that addresses the needs of pre-trial, probation and corrections agencies. Our solution is easy to install, requires no upfront hardware investments and deploys easily to start delivering benefits right away. This solution is currently being deployed by hundreds of departments and agencies nationwide to monitor non-violent offenders, pre-trial detainees, juveniles, and other persons of interest.

A myriad of new technologies are providing powerful new capabilities for public safety.

Police

Officers can now receive relevant information en route to a call—individuals involved, previous calls at the address, even real-time video surveillance feeds to better assess and respond. Connected police vehicles keep officers linked to state and federal criminal databases, police and courthouse applications, license plate recognition systems and much more.

EMS

Paramedics can securely access electronic patient care records (EPCR) to understand a patient’s medical history and conditions when responding to an emergency. They can transmit vital signs from the field, and communicate back to hospitals for guidance or to prep emergency services—all of which can shave critical minutes off response times, and save lives.

Fire

Firefighters can access extensive information from the vehicle when responding to fires. They can identify sites with hazardous materials and access building plans to determine the best method of access, and better protect emergency personnel and citizens.

Technology Overview

With more than 15 years of working with public safety agencies and technology partners, Sierra Wireless understands the challenges that first responders face in the field. Our rugged vehicle routers and gateways power the full range of connected public safety applications in the vehicle, with the secure communications that responders need to do their jobs. Whether it’s accessing government databases or transmitting confidential healthcare information, we power highly secure Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS)-compliant public safety solutions.

Sierra Wireless is also the first vendor to bring a Band 14 multi-network gateway to market. As more responder organizations begin using the FirstNet Band 14 spectrum dedicated to public safety communications, they need solutions that can switch seamlessly between Band 14 and commercial cellular LTE networks to maintain continuous coverage. We are the only vendor that provides these capabilities in a commercial solution today.
