1. Solution Brief / Public Sector Connectivity to Power Mission- Critical Police Technologies CHALLENGE: ALWAYS-AVAILABLE CONNECTIVITY FOR POLICE OFFICERS As a part of a renewed focus on law enforcement accountability, public safety, and building better relationships with the communities they serve, modern police departments are coming up against challenges when utilizing big data technologies to improve operations and foster transparency and accountability for their officers. As Police departments implement body cameras, tablets, and upgrade the technology for dashboard cameras, in-vehicle routers that support these technologies are becoming more and more important. But, as the need for these applications grows, public sector IT teams that manage these initiatives are facing bandwidth and resource challenges. SOLUTION: UTILIZING IN-VEHICLE NETWORK SOLUTIONS TO STREAMLINE MISSION-CRITICAL APPLICATIONS IN THE FIELD With 3G/4G/LTE, police vehicles can use the in-vehicle connectivity to power mission- critical applications, not only for reporting, but also for body cameras, video streaming, and dashboard cameras. With ignition sensing, in-vehicle networks can run even while the vehicle is parked, creating networks that are powered by the officer’s vehicle.

2. Wireless connectivity provides a means to securely stream video “in the moment” to dispatchers with real-time updates on officer safety. Wireless also frees up camera systems of the storage limitations that would otherwise be placed on them by the availability of local storage media, allowing video to be compressed, encrypted, and sent to dispatch centers to inform command units of the whereabouts and operations of their officers during a call. These applications can give police departments greater granularity on how to use and store videos – allowing them to send and save tamper-proof copies to third-party audit companies. CRADLEPOINT ADVANTAGES: + Remote monitoring, maintenance, and updates – Wireless networks require constant management. When the network is always in motion, consistent physical access to equipment is impossible.
