Data communications across multiple agencies and locations is essential during times of emergency. In 2009, the National Public-Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) joined PSST, APCO, and NENA in endorsing LTE as the technology of choice for the nationwide public safety system. Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology was adopted as the foundation of public safety networks mainly due to its nationwide interoperability and support of a wide variety of broadband applications. LTE can enhance emergency responders operations by delivering high-data-rate services to wide coverage areas. Such communication links can support digital imaging, video streaming, voice, large data download, and other capabilities which cannot be supported over the traditional narrowband network. LTE Wireless broadband networks allow mission-critical information to be exchanged in real-time, anytime, anywhere. Database lookups, dispatch messaging, mug shots, video/surveillance feeds, and broadcasting can now be achieved within seconds instead of hours.
The BEC MX-1000 was designed specifically for such purposes. It offers extensive cellular coverage via BEC's roof-mount SX antenna. The SX antenna ensures high-quality, high-bandwidth transmission for a variety of mobile and fixed communications, from mobile command center to first responder personnel. The MX-1000 features a rugged compact design with integrated 4-port Gigabit switch, 802.11n Wi-Fi access point with Multiple SSID support, two multi-function USB 2.0 host interfaces for Storage/SAMBA server, Embedded GPS with concurrent multi-GNSS engine for GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS as well as a variety of configurable options such as: Dual SIM Dual Module, power ignition control and cloud-based remote access management. The MX-1000 also incorporates Dual Radio Network technology that can support public safety network and a commercial carrier network simultaneously.
LTE communications for public safety networks must have the capabilities to accelerate response times and provide vital information for those who are planning and making decisions. Quick response time and accurate information are critical in saving lives and minimizing infrastructure damages in a time of crisis. The MX-1000 has inherited over 10 years of experience and technology innovations in mission critical devices by BEC Technologies. As a leader in LTE data communication devices, BEC is committed to offering an comprehensive LTE device solution for public safety by providing cutting edge software & hardware features, world class support services and reliable quality that has been trusted by over 350+ network operators worldwide.
