Digital police camera systems depend on a good-sized data store. Without it, police cars would have to download video manually at the end of every shift. Additionally, in-vehicle car video systems are not reliable as they are too fragile for the constant wear and tear of police usage. Police vehicles face constant shock, vibration, and exposure to nature’s elements, like wide temperatures and humidity.

Today operators and providers are pushing full speed ahead into 5G network deployment to meet the exponential growth of mobile data usage and 5G applications. Operators and providers need to walk a fine line between upgrading their network architecture quickly and continuing to provide existing customers with uninterrupted, uncompromised services. This is also happening in parallel with the added challenge of keeping operating and upgrade expenses to a minimum. As a result, service assurance is a critical discipline for the successful upgrade of network architecture. An effective end-to-end service assurance system evaluates problems, ranks them based on their impact level, and prioritizes corrective actions. It is indispensable for operators and providers to leverage service assurance to ensure the rapid deployment of their 5G networks while maintaining or exceeding the level of services they provide to their existing customers.   

Today, the public safety relies more on FirstNet than ever, as first responders increasingly count on this wireless communication platform when performing their duties. Particularly in emergent medical duties, paramedics need to collaborate and communicate with other first responders, like police and fire fighters, in order to have more information about the victims’ situations. This can mean a difference in saving lives.

With advancements in technology, the role of school buses has become more and more comprehensive, from merely transporting children to security incorporated vehicles. In fact, location-based tracking, attendance assurance and real-time video surveillance of both interior and exterior of the vehicle are among the most discussed requirements for school bus safety, due to risks regarding behavioral concerns of drivers and students while in transit. With the safety concerns in mind, educational organizations are adopting security technologies in their school buses to provide visibility of drivers and children, as well as the GPS/RFID tracking system to keep track of bus/student footprints.

Cash-In-Transit vehicles are the critical fleets for financial institutions, as they transport valuable assets like cash, jewelries and other valuable assets. Therefore, it is a mandatory procedure to reduce the risks of robbery, theft and unidentified personnel, while securing the vehicle and the assets in it. In fact, it is believed that a 4G/LTE-based networked surveillance is currently the most optimal and real-time solution for the security of cash-in-transit.

Today’s transportation service operators are facing challenges to improve safety, mobility efficiency and infotainment in order to strengthen passenger retentions. Among these, mobile Internet access has been the most demanded. In fact, onboard Wi-Fi has been implemented by some commercial airlines on their aircrafts. Therefore, service providers have to consider the future impact on the traffic growth over Wi-Fi connections.

The traffic on the streets have become more and more congested, which often cause delays for transit vehicles, especially buses. Thus, local governments are seeking cost-effective ways to improve the situation. In recent years, the technological concepts of V2I (Vehicle-to-Infrastructure) and TSP (Transit Signal Priority) have received increased attention as the reliable and cost-efficient way to free up the street congestion and make the traffic more energy efficient at the same time.
