FLEXIBILITY, FREEDOM AND CHOICE
WiFi “ TETHER”
Vehicles are now becoming mobile communications
hubs. This makes sense: cars and trucks have the power
and space to host powerful communications tools.
A Vehicle Area Network (VAN) is a local area network
in and around a moving vehicle. The network enables
devices in and around the vehicle to communicate,
providing WiFi, Bluetooth or Ethernet for a growing
range of commercially-available devices. Smart phones,
tablets or laptops can be wirelessly networked. Vehicle-based equipment such as medical diagnostic tools
in an ambulance may be directly connected. Vehicle
diagnostic or personal physiological sensors can be
locally integrated for remote situational monitoring.
The VAN will connect these locally-networked devices
to your system’s backhaul bearers. Here’s how:
By including dedicated processing power, local data
storage and customizable software, the VAN terminal
is transformed from a simple router to a configurable
platform that can support unique organisational
requirements, unifying the full communications
experience of voice and data applications for users.
Start with a commercial 3G or 4G modem
and SIM card from your preferred carrier. 1
Connect your existing P25 or DMR radio

Add a second modem easily, when a
private data network becomes available.
Install a satellite link when remote
connectivity is required.
