Vehicle Area Networks

Vehicle Area Networks

Our vehicle area network solution is a perfect fit for organizations who have multiple personnel riding in the same response vehicle or deployed in a single special operations trailer. When this is the case, a VAN can improve overall connectivity for your personnel as well as lower cellular costs.

Win-Win-Better Connectivity AND Lower Monthly Recurring Costs

How is it possible to attain these seemingly disparate goals?

Real World Example - Ambulance Communications

One ambulance contains two people. A driver and a medic who are both equipped with tablet computers. The ambulance also contains a wirelessly enabled heart monitor. Using a VAN the medic can compute in the front-and-back of the ambulance and directly outside the ambulance using WiFi. In addition, the heart monitor can connect to the WLAN as well. The WiFi access point is seamlessly back-hauled using the cellular network. The communications of all three data devices are all aggregated via the WiFi access point. The two people and the monitor can communicate back to the hospital emergency room using one WWAN cellular connection.
