Telit, AT&T to help first responders understand mobile technology options
IoT provider Telit announced its participation in two upcoming events with AT&T to help public safety agencies exploring FirstNet services better understand and implement 4G/LTE technologies. The events underscore Telit and AT&T’s focus on providing the first responder community with opportunities to learn about services, devices and other products for mission-critical applications. On 23 August, Telit and AT&T presented, “How hardware affects service and coverage for First Responder communications,” an hour-long webinar hosted by Radio Resource Mission Critical Communications. The discussion explored how the mobile modules used in mission-critical devices determine which networks and services first responders can use and how those choices can affect coverage, flexibility and resilience. On 24 October in Tampa, Florida, Telit and AT&T will participate in “Cellular at the Center of New Generation of Emergency Responder Communications,” a panel at Smart Cities Connect Fall Conference and Expo.
The two events expand on Telit’s long, productive relationship with AT&T, including providing LTE modules for demanding applications such as connected vehicles. “With LTE, first responders get a fast, reliable, proven technology, a global economy of scale and other benefits that private radio systems can’t approach, let alone match,” said Ken Bednasz, Telit, vice president of application engineering. “Through webinars, conference panels and other initiatives, AT&T and Telit are helping public safety agencies, municipalities and other organizations understand how they can benefit from LTE while making smart implementation choices.”
