“There is also Cinetcomm, a company located in Nevada, that builds a number of vehicular devices including what I would describe as a “smart control head” that can be married to both a router and an existing LMR radio, and the Cinetcomm servers can connect to some FirstNet-approved PTT applications to provide cross-platform PTT interoperability. Further, if the vehicle is out of LMR range, the control head routes LMR over LTE and if needed for out-of-area coverage, it also offers a mobile satellite system that can provide backhaul for both LMR and LTE and re-connect them to their respective networks. “

When a disaster occurs, usually the Fire Department sets up an Incident Command Post and assumes responsibility for the area. Nothing is more critical to this coordinated response than having the ability to communicate anywhere. During a disaster response, the cellular network can be bogged down by phone calls, or it can be destroyed altogether. The TotalConnex Network will ensure you can coordinate a response with or without cellular towers.
Law Enforcement is usually the first responder to any scene. When these scenes catch the eye of the public or any media outlets, you can count on most of the communications network’s bandwidth to be used up by the public and the media. TotalConnex works hand in hand with FirstNet, and when cellular towers are down will still ensure that you can communicate through the TotalConnex Network.
Electric Utilities are no strangers to working in a hard-hit hurricane zone or tornado-prone areas. When these violent storms hit, residents and businesses are left with no power, in a lot of cases no communication to the outside world. It is critical for electric utilities to be able to communicate internally with each other while in these hard-hit areas for successful and safe storm responses.
