Public Safety

The pandemic presented unprecedented challenges to public safety agencies, pushing them to their limits. They faced a surge in mission-critical traffic, supporting public health and emergency responses. Rapid response has become the new normal. To adapt to this evolving landscape, agency networks are transitioning to IP/MPLS as they embrace new applications and services. As the era of 5G dawns, these networks will face even greater demands for bandwidth, speed, and reliability. Amidst this transformation, Afren continues to offer top-tier solutions for complex critical infrastructure applications. Our wireless backhaul systems empower agencies with high capacity, robust network security, reliability, and a low total cost of ownership.



Public Safety networks are undergoing remarkable changes, embracing new possibilities and expansion. As the necessity to transition from TDM to IP/MPLS becomes more pressing, agencies may face having to share common inter or intra-agency infrastructure for first-responder traffic. Imagine a unified infrastructure that seamlessly supports the exchange of vital information among various agencies and their dedicated first responders. Picture this: you're venturing into the uncharted territory of captivating technologies like bandwidth-hungry drones and high-definition mobile video. These remarkable advancements demand an extraordinary network capacity and unwavering connectivity, ensuring that real-time insights flow effortlessly.
