Dejero, IP Access Partner on Hybrid Satellite, Cellular System for First Responders
Wednesday, April 14, 2021 | Comments

Dejero formed a partnership with IP Access International to provide a hybrid cellular/satellite network of networks that first responders can rely on for real-time, uninterrupted connectivity in the most challenging of situations and locations.

“Our customers are looking to transport more data than ever before from locations where disasters have struck or where a disruption to infrastructure has occurred,” said IP Access CEO Bryan Hill. “Leveraging on data and video from IoT devices, such as drones, to increase awareness and carry out real-time site surveys, means that the need for robust and reliable connectivity has become even more crucial.”

Dejero’s connectivity technology combines the bandwidth of multiple network providers and diverse technologies to deliver enhanced reliability, expanded coverage, and greater bandwidth to connect mobile workforces and remote locations to command centers.

“It’s impossible to anticipate exactly where a disaster, such as an earthquake or hurricane might strike or where a major incident such as a mass shooting may occur,” said Hill. “Being able to offer reliable alternative connectivity paths to mobile command vehicles from locations where the line of sight to our satellite network may be obstructed, means that we can provide a complete solution that virtually eliminates downtime for our customers.”

Serving more than 900 public-safety agencies across North America and beyond, IP Access International provides a multisatellite network and mobile satellite communications technologies to public safety and first responders for use in command vehicles, trailers and quick deploy units.

By equipping mobile command vehicles with a FirstNet Ready Dejero GateWay network aggregation device, its operators can achieve always-on, mission-critical connectivity to wirelessly transmit data from cameras, sensors and edge devices to and from the cloud. Regardless of where the command vehicle is parked, be it an underground carpark, in a forest or at the side of a mountain, reliable connectivity can be achieved and furthermore, data and video from patrol officers and SWAT teams can be accessed even at high speeds and across large geographies.

The Dejero GateWay can also be relied upon in environments where cellular networks become heavily congested, such as emergency evacuation camps in response to natural disasters and more recently, large scale COVID vaccination sites, where thousands descend on one area in a matter of hours. Being able to combine diverse network connections, GateWay ensures the delivery of mission-critical video and data to public-safety professionals from devices such as unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and LiDAR devices in order to conduct live, high-quality site surveys or effective crowd control.

In February, at the opening of a mass COVID-19 vaccination site at California State University’s Los Angeles campus, a Dejero GateWay utilized the IP Access International five-by-five satellite link and LTE networks for connectivity to support the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES). The network aggregation technology ensured a reliable media communications uplink for key media and government representatives including the governor’s office.

“Having only one connection path leaves organizations vulnerable to having insufficient bandwidth to carry out key tasks, or in the worst case, downtime,” said Dejero Founder Bogdan Frusina. “By joining forces with IP Access International, we can offer public-safety professionals and first responders a complete solution to ensure reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity, when and where they need it.”
