Product Specifications
  • Multi-Service Mobility Firetide Mobility Controller (FMC) delivers high-speed infrastructure mobility, and seamless client roaming. The controller software is a rack-mountable hardware appliance that integrates into an existing IT infrastructure.

    Public Transportation vehicles such as buses, subways, and trains can offer enhanced services to passengers and operators that go beyond conventional Wi-Fi connectivity. Example applications for Firetide’s mobility infrastructure include:

    * 2-Way Video enables train and subway operators to view live video feeds onboard the train itself, and also view live video of the tracks ahead of them; and the stations they are scheduled to arrive at. The ability to view live video enables train operators to see hazards and people on the tracks ahead or to determine if the upcoming passenger loading platform is clear and that the train ahead of them has actually left the station. Video helps operators and station staff to quickly identify safety and security issues to avoid potential disasters and make critical life-saving decisions.
    * Video Offload capability enables vehicles to wirelessly offload video captured by on-board cameras to a storage server located inside the station.
    * Emergency Medical Services (EMS) vehicles equipped with a wireless network infrastructure can send critical information about a patient in transit, such as heart rate, blood pressure, and live video enabling the emergency room to be better prepared to treat the patient upon arrival.
    * Police and Public Safety vehicles can view video feeds from video cameras around town providing virtual eyes to monitor more locations, reduce response time and enable police officers to be better prepared in responding when a problem occurs.
    * Digital Signage can be employed to provide information on travel schedules and routes, display advertising, broadcast public service announcements, and more.
    * Data Collection with RFID and optical scanners for gathering and transmitting information such as ticketing data, vehicle locations, and route conditions.
