Vehicle Area Networking

Delivering High Performance Real-Time Collaboration

Law enforcement professionals depend on hand-held, body worn and in-vehicle technologies to serve their community. Keeping all these technologies connected and working together is a small black box – a ruggedized wireless Sierra Wireless AirLink® vehicle router that creates a Vehicle Area Network or VAN. A VAN helps first responders to be more collaborative, better prepared and highly productive while delivering increased safety and transparency.
