The department's IT team must be able to monitor and manage its mobile network solutions remotely, reducing the need for in-person IT work that consumes time and money. Clackamas Fire now easily deploys Cradlepoint NetCloud Service for mobile — keeping its CAD system and patient data reporting connected 24x7 and enhancing the department's emergency response time. The service includes a cloud-managed router with embedded LTE. This service provides reliable and agile connectivity that is easy to deploy and manage remotely. In the past, we used Air Cards to connect our MDCs, and they were constantly disconnecting because of the older technology. Today, with Cradlepoint solutions, cellular connectivity is more consistant in our fire vehicles."
