County of Los Angeles Fire Department Bolsters Communication and Efficiency with Gigabit-Class LTE in Vehicles

January 13, 2021

Challenge — The County of Los Angeles Fire Department (LACoFD) had an aging and decentralized in-vehicle network that was using both a privately built LTE network and a commercial LTE service, which was congested by millions of LA-area residents. This left public safety agencies competing for access and bandwidth, which is especially problematic during emergencies.

Solution — LACoFD has been deploying Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service for Mobile with multi-modem, Gigabit-Class LTE routers in more than 1,000 fire apparatuses and 400 support vehicles. This solution includes Wi-Fi, GPS with telematics integration, and cloud configuration controls and analytics.

Benefits — With dual-modem functionality for multi-carrier failover, support for nationwide public safety networks, and a slew of management features at its disposal, LACoFD has a more reliable, comprehensive, and manageable network for its widespread vehicles.
