CES 2012: Verizon and In Motion Technology offer 4G LTE vehicle area network

By Telecom Lead Team: Mobile service provider Verizon
Wireless and In Motion Technology announced the first wireless mobile router
system for securely extending the enterprise network to the vehicle over 4G LTE

The In Motion Technology onBoard system includes a mobile
gateway that transforms vehicles into secure, mobile hotspots; a network
management system that monitors network health and communications; and a
mobile-optimized VPN server providing end-to-end security. 

In Motion Technology
will be demonstrating how its onBoard Mobile Gateway can be used in ambulances.
By securely connecting laptops, tablets, electrocardiograms, Electronic Patient
Care Reporting, IP cameras, Computer Aided Dispatch and vehicle diagnostic
systems, the onBoard Mobile Gateway will improve efficiency for emergency responders. 

The onBoard Mobility Manager enables operations to
analyze information from Gateways in the field via a dashboard showing
locations, direction and speed, and monitors vehicle diagnostics, devices and
networks. The onBoard Connection Manager provides secure IP mobility and
sub-second switching in a multi-network environment.

“We are pleased that our mission critical customers
now have the opportunity to do business using the Verizon 4G LTE network. 
We believe that 4G LTE will revolutionize mobile-centric businesses by enabling
improved real-time collaboration.  In the case of EMS, 4G LTE provides
real-time sharing of video, voice and data that can have a dramatic impact on
patient outcomes,” said Kirk Moir, president and chief operating officer for
In Motion Technology. 

With its 4G network, Verizon Wireless now
covers more than 200 million people in 190 markets.
