Panasonic Travels U.S. with FirstNet Truck
Thursday, September 27, 2018 | Comments

A Panasonic Toughbook Truck begins its journey to support first responders’ transition to the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet). The 40-foot truck is designed and outfitted to offer an educational, immersive mobile experience across the U.S. in partnership with AT&T and Sierra Wireless.

In each city the truck visits, the public-safety community will be able to explore how Toughbook computers, services and support could complement the FirstNet mission. Panasonic’s goal is to educate and equip FirstNet primary users such as law enforcement, firefighters and EMS, as well as extended primary users such as healthcare, transportation and utilities workers.

“Panasonic is working closely with customers ready to make the transition to FirstNet,” said Mary Beth Hall, director of wireless strategy, marketing at Panasonic System Solutions of North America. “FirstNet is designed to ensure that vital communications get through during mission-critical moments. This shares a common spirit with Toughbook, designed to get the job done when unexpected challenges arise.”

All Panasonic Toughbook devices are able to take advantage of FirstNet rate plans. Panasonic is also preparing to offer FirstNet-certified devices and offer customers the full FirstNet experience out of the box.
