Global Wireless Broadband in Public Safety Market: Overview
Wireless broadband services technology is vital to public safety since it helps provide enhanced situational awareness from public safety entities in cases of emergency. There is an urgent need for effective wireless communications networks that can be used by emergency service organizations, such as the police and emergency medical and fire services, to respond to and prevent incidents likely to endanger people or property. Government agencies are constantly looking to expand the applications of wireless broadband in public safety, the key applications being video surveillance, emergency medical telemetry, mobile virtual private network (VPN) access, incident scene management, automated vehicle locating, and geographic information systems (GIS).
Wireless broadband enables access to site information, medical records, and various forms of data and video information that are critical for emergency responses. In the U.S., for instance, broadband technology helps improve homeland security. By establishing the foundation for the quick, real-time, and effective transmission of data, voice, or video to various public safety answering points, wireless broadband continues to enhance the country’s present 9-1-1 system.
