Nokia has announced that Nokia 7705 SAR-Hmc wireless service aggregation router is now certified and approved for use on FirstNet, nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform in the US.
Nokia’s service aggregation router extends service routing to remote sites, hubs and network edges, providing high capacity and maximises network stability. It supports smart grid distribution automation and other fixed and vehicle-mounted applications for public safety agencies and other organisations that could be called on to support first responders, including transportation, energy and mining.
Brenda Kittila, Vice-President, FirstNet Operations at AT&T, said: “FirstNet devices and modules go through extensive review so first responders can be confident that Nokia’s 7705 SAR-Hmc meets our highest standards for reliability, security and performance.”
Ricky Corker, President of Customer Operations for Americas at Nokia, said: “Keeping first responders and critical infrastructure connected during a crisis keeps all of us safer. With our FirstNet Ready router, we can now provide secure wireless access to FirstNet across the U.S. for public safety, the utility industry, and state, local and federal government agencies.”
