Axon Body-Worn Camera Certified on FirstNet, Verizon Networks
Monday, September 09, 2019 | Comments

Axon’s Body 3 body-worn camera passed carrier certification requirements to operate on the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) and Verizon networks.

Axon Body 3 is a Long Term Evolution (LTE)-connected camera built for law enforcement to improve officer safety. The camera received the FirstNet Ready carrier certification from AT&T. Combining FirstNet's reliable connectivity with the Axon Body 3 will help law enforcement officers capture and relay critical events as they happen. With FirstNet service, the Axon Body 3's video streams and real-time alerts will be prioritized.

"FirstNet devices go through extensive review, so first responders can be confident that Axon Body 3 body-worn cameras meet our highest standards for reliability, security and performance," said Bob Sloan, chief operating officer, FirstNet Program at AT&T. "We're pleased to take this important next step with Axon and officially welcome them to FirstNet's growing device ecosystem for first responder solutions. The more tools public safety has access to on their network, the more we can help them achieve their mission."

The product also passed carrier certification requirements for the Verizon Responder Private Core, a portion of Verizon’s LTE network, separating emergency data communications from commercial and consumer traffic. Verizon also provides priority and pre-emption services, as well as enhanced service management and control.

"Verizon is happy to continue its relationship with Axon, powering cutting-edge technology for public-safety officials who utilize critical communications solutions," said Nick Nilan, director of product development for public sector at Verizon. "Public-safety agencies continue to work with Verizon because we have the nation's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network, and we're excited to continue to bring innovative, advanced solutions to first responders nationwide."

Axon Body 3 is available to purchase for agencies in the U.S and is on track to begin initial shipments to customers this month.
