Peplink Solution for Public Safety and Emergency Response

Public Safety and Emergency Response Vehicle

Resilient data and voice communication is imperative for public safety and emergency response vehicle to react to incidence.

Command or Dispatch Centre

Dependable data and voice communication at command or dispatch centre is crucial to reduce incident response time.


Internet On-The-Go and Peplink Technology

A wireless internet backhaul is needed to provide critical data and voice communication for public safety or emergency response vehicle on the go. Traditionally this can be a VSAT, or a single 4G LTE internet connection, whether of a public safety network or of a commercial one.

The problems are with coverage and installation space. While VSAT has a rather comprehensive coverage on land, it requires a bulky satellite antenna which in most cases require more room than a public safety or emergency response vehicle can afford.Not to mention that the setup, and recurring data and maintenance costs of VSAT are rather high. 4G LTE, on the hand, requires little space for installation compared to VSAT and is much more affordable in all aspects. However, every 4G LTE carrier has coverage dead spot and performance may vary drastically from one area to the next.

Bandwidth is also limited for both VSAT and 4G LTE. However fast the technology is advancing, it is becoming increasingly difficult to provide the data that the on-vehicle public safety or emergency response equipment demands.

Peplink Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) and SpeedFusion Bandwidth Bonding Hybrid WAN provide a solution to these problems, by allowing public safety or emergency response vehicle, to use commercial 4G LTE as backup to, or at the same time as, public safety 4G LTE network, instead of using just a single public safety or commercial 4G LTE, or VSAT.

This in effect combines the coverage areas of multiple public safety and commercial 4G LTE networks and eliminates the coverage dead spot of any individual connection. If a single 4G LTE network fails, your critical data or voice communication will be switched over to another 4G LTE network without missing a beat. Multiple networks can also be used simultaneously to provide more bandwidth if needed.

SpeedFusion Bandwidth Bonding Hybrid WAN encrypts your critical data or voice communication with AES 256 bit encryption to ensure highest level of security.

And with Peplink InControl 2 cloud management API, your entire deployment, whether on a vehicle or at a command or dispatch centre, can be monitored and managed from your existing in-house or third-party system.


Product Recommendation and Reference Network Design

Pepwave MAX HD2 SD-WAN router, equipped with 2x embedded 4G LTE/3G modems and built-in Wi-Fi, is an ideal SD-WAN router for police or emergency response vehicle.

Peplink SpeedFusion Bandwidth Bonding Hybrid WAN will establish a bonded, high-speed, resilient and AES 256 bit encrypted internet backhaul, on all available commercial and public safety 4G LTE networks, to the remote command centre.

Commercial 4G LTE networks can be used as back up to, or as the same time as, the public safety 4G LTE network, as the deployment requires.

The MAX HD2 supports also redundant SIM slot. This means for every commercial or public safety 4G LTE connection, you can insert one extra SIM as backup. It will use the backup SIM when the primary SIM is out of coverage, out of bandwidth quota, or otherwise unavailable.
