T-Mobile strengthens support for Government agencies with mobile solution


T-Mobile USA introduced Persistent Communication
Solutions by T-Mobile, a mobile telecommunications solution to support
government entities’ Continuity of Operations (CooP) efforts.


As another step in the company’s commitment to government
customers, the solution lets first responders stay connected during an
emergency from the same phone they use every day without having to switch to a
different device, even when commercial wireless networks are out of service.


The solution also enables wireless communication in
remote areas where no commercial networks exist.

by T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi Calling for Government technology, which allows voice and

customers are able to leverage Persistent Communication Solutions by T-Mobile
on devices capable of Wi-Fi Calling and can tailor the solution to their
specific needs. T-Mobile will demonstrate the solution during LandWarNet,
August 23 – 25, 2011.
