Security Products Magazine Names Firetide Mobility Infrastructure Family 2011 New Wireless Product of the Year
Firetide’s Mobility Infrastructure has been selected as the winner of Security Products magazine’s ‘2011 New Product of the Year Award’ in the wireless technology category.
Firetide’s Mobility Infrastructure, which includes the HotPort 7000 and FMC-2000, delivers reliable, uninterrupted Internet connectivity from virtually any moving vehicle including first responders, trains, buses, and more, enabling a range of exciting new applications that were not possible before. Essentially any standard Ethernet or Wi-Fi-enabled device such as iPhones, laptop computers, even video security cameras, can maintain continuous network connectivity, even while travelling at high speeds.
Examples of customer uses for Firetide’s Mobility Infrastructure:
- Police cruisers or private security patrols have access to video feeds from fixed video cameras around town providing virtual eyes monitoring to more locations, reducing response time and enabling them to be better prepared in responding when a problem occurs;
- Emergency Medical Services (EMS) vehicles send critical information about a patient in transit, such as heart rate, blood pressure, etc., enabling the emergency room to be better prepared to treat the patient upon arrival;
- Public transit vehicles such as buses or trains can utilize video security to monitor rider activities and help in quickly identifying problems so action to protect riders. Video can also be used as evidence in court such as to identify a personal property theft or vandalism.
