3 x Ways Video Streaming Is Being Used To Improve Operations For Blue Light Service Workers
It's not surprising that the recent surge in remote and mobile workers has caused a seismic shift in the number of organisations adopting modern mobile working solutions; consequently, this blog will look at three examples where video-streaming technologies have been adopted by Blue Light service providers, and explore the best ways for other public and private sector organisations to deploy similar technologies.
Missing People Cases - Police Services
Hertfordshire Constabulary recently procured a new high-spec drone to find missing
people, photograph crime scenes and monitor major incidences. This comes after previous drone trials enabled Hertfordshire to save several lives during searches for vulnerable people.
With drone technology in mind, as well as the broader usage of mobile devices and field communications technologies, it is critical that the likes of Hertfordshire's field officers have continuous access to network connectivity in order to manage these technologies reliably.
David Krebs, Executive Vice President and Analyst for VDC Research, says that:
"Network access limitations [are a common hurdle for Public Safety officers], which causes frequent coverage issues in the field and ultimately disruption to mission critical operations. To reduce critical response times, first responders need access to secure, reliable connections and real-time mobile deployment data no matter their location.”
Working in conjunction with the likes of NetMotion and Pangea, MiTEQ are able to support the adoption of new video-streaming technologies, deploying multi-network SIMs, secure traffic optimisation and analytics tools, and even tagging and tracking assets such as high-value drones, for real-time data insights.
Mapping Out Buildings In Real-Time - Fire Services
Fire brigades have seen huge benefits from adopting video-streaming technologies to enhance field service operations. From the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, to wild fires throughout California, drone technology is being used to help firefighters gather data relating to the size and heat of fires, damage inflicted to buildings, and even people at risk or in danger.
Similarly to Police forces, Firefighters need to be able to rely on uninterrupted connectivity to stream videos back to trusted parties, and continually and securely access mission-critical applications. From Police and Fire, right the way through to Ambulatory services, MiTEQ can help.
Mobile Diagnostic Solutions - Ambulatory Services
Innovate UK are currently funding an initiative between Pangea and Kingston University - supported by MiTEQ - trialing enhanced video compression and data transfer capabilities over 5G. This aims to enable Ambulance operators to accurately triage patients over video streams while en route to A&E. This is delivering reliable, low latency connectivity to Healthcare providers - improving response times, cutting costs, and saving lives.
Of course, once proven, this technology can be adopted by Ambulatory and Domiciliary care providers to improve the efficiency of their operations.
How To Deploy This Technology
When it comes to mobile video-streaming technologies, hardware, software and connectivity technologies must be brought together to deliver one slick and seamless solution.
