Siyata Mobile announced that the Uniden UV350 in-vehicle mounted phablet is FirstNet Ready, making it tested and approved for use with services on the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) communications platform. The UV350 is the first in-vehicle mounted phablet that has been tested and approved to operate on FirstNet.

A phablet is a smartphone with a screen that is intermediate in size between a typical smartphone and a tablet computer.

“FirstNet devices and modules go through extensive review, so first responders can be confident that Siyata’s UV350 meets the highest standards for reliability, security and performance,” said Bob Sloan, chief operating officer, FirstNet program at AT&T. “The more tools public safety has access to on their network, the more we can help them achieve their mission. We are happy to be the first U.S. cellular carrier to launch Uniden’s NextGen Vehicle Communicator, an innovative in-vehicle mounted phablet. We believe it will be an excellent answer for both existing and newly migrating FirstNet subscribers seeking an in-vehicle communication device.”

The device supports the FirstNet band 14 spectrum and gives public-safety subscribers access to the dedicated, physically separate FirstNet network core. The product minimizes the excessive clutter often found in the cabins of firetrucks, ambulances and police squad cars by combining the functions of multiple devices into one.

Using AT&T Enhanced Push to Talk (EPTT) or push-to-talk over cellular (PoC), drivers can communicate with crystal-clear sound, and the UV350 is powered by the vehicle battery, with cellular signal boosting technology to ensure drivers are always connected in emergency situations.

All FirstNet Ready devices are listed at on the FirstNet device page.
