GSM in Emergency Situations

Secure, Private GSM Network Regardless of Macro Network Conditions

In an emergency situation, a key consideration is to control and contain the scene. Key to this is an effective communications strategy with an emphasis on field personnel. The ability to remain in contact with your colleagues and operational centres could be the difference between a controlled situation and one which would be potentially hazardous for both operatives and the general public.

A standard method of communication would be to utilise the macro GSM networks. However, it has been the case that macro GSM networks have been closed down to remove the risk of cellular control of remote devices. Also, in situations that are in densely populated areas, the sheer volume of cellular traffic at the scene can cause network congestion which severely restricts communication for personnel managing the incident.

The Private Mobile Network overcomes these obstacles by generating its own secure, private GSM network regardless of macro network conditions.

  • Regardless of where the vehicles are deployed.
  • Full private and secure mobile where no carrier mobile networks exist.
  • Eliminate communications problems.
  • Fully preconfigured and can be up and running within minutes.
  • Ensures operationally-critical communications continuity is maintained.
