The presentation will cover both the general concept of vehicle-as-a-hub as well as making reference to specific use cases involving public safety agencies and councils in Australia. We will cover the technology that makes a multi-bearer solution possible within a vehicle and a network, as well as the integration to dispatch/control centre. Also, we will demonstrate the improvements in safety and communications (voice and data) that come with being able to rely on your vehicle acting as a repeater when at a beyond-Wi-Fi distance. The ability to take your network with you, as opposed to relying on the fixed coverage challenges of relying solely on cellular or LMR, will be presented to the audience as a compelling reason their future planning should include this option.

In conclusion, reference will be made to how Australia is preparing for a more cellular-focused, PSMB world and how you can equip vehicle fleets and their users with a comprehensive critical communications solution.
