Dejero GateWay devices become FirstNet Ready™
Dejero has announced that its GateWay network aggregation devices have been approved as FirstNet Ready™ available for use on FirstNet®. The Dejero GateWay M6E6F and 211 devices deliver reliable wireless connectivity for applications such as voice, video, and data communication while in nomadic or mobile environments, as well as adding wireless connectivity to fixed locations.
Aggregating diverse connectivity paths from multiple providers, now including FirstNet®, GateWay devices use Dejero Smart Blending Technology to “deliver enhanced reliability, expanded coverage, and greater bandwidth”, states Dejero.
FirstNet is built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) – an independent agency within the U.S. federal government. It’s designed with and for first responders and the public safety agencies and extended community that could be called on to support them. This includes companies that perform mitigation, remediation, overhaul, clean-up and restoration and provisioning services required in an emergency or its aftermath.
The GateWay devices, which are FirstNet Ready™, support access to the physically separate and dedicated FirstNet network core, which enables FirstNet First Priority® capabilities – always-on priority and, for first responders, preemption – and the FirstNet Band 14 spectrum.
As part of the agreement through the FirstNet Embedded IoT Program – a program that combines industry leading FirstNet Ready™ devices with FirstNet to create a single, end-to-end solution for a single monthly fee for first responders, public safety agencies and extended community – the Dejero GateWay networking aggregation devices will include FirstNet connectivity.
“To be part of this FirstNet Embedded IoT Program, knowing that our connectivity technology is aiding mission-critical operations on such a scale, is incredibly important to us,” said Bogdan Frusina, founder of Dejero. “The capabilities we offer to public safety and federal agencies further cements our commitment to their always on, always available critical connectivity needs in the field.”
“FirstNet embedded solutions go through extensive review to meet our highest standards for reliability, security and performance,” added Scott Agnew, assistant vice president, product marketing, FirstNet Program at AT&T. “The more tools public safety has access to on their networks, the more we can help them achieve their mission.”
