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.
