As public safety technologies continue to improve and evolve, mobile command and control center (MCCC) solutions are becoming more prevalent for public safety agencies of all sizes, and recognized by law-enforcement and military applications and even among organizations that require high quality, mobile video surveillance. Mobile command centers can be vital equipment during emergencies, man-made or natural disasters, enabling quick response and uninterrupted communications to monitor and respond to a crisis.
MCCC solutions are appropriate for a wide variety of other use cases including better protection of the public during city-wide events and celebrations, and respond to high-risk events such as standoff or hostage situations. The main benefits of a MCCC solution is decreased response time, multi-agency collaboration, and assuring efficient monitoring, identification, and notification, to speed up the decision-making process.
A MCCC solution can ensure public safety agencies the technology, resources and coordination they need in case of an emergency. The hardware network appliance for a public safety mobile command vehicle would need to meet the following requirements:
● Location Tracking
An advantage of MCCC is its mobility and ability to be where the incident is occurring, therefore location tracking of the vehicle is needed. In addition to built-in GPS vehicle location information, Lanner’s ISD-V330 supports Controller Area Network (CAN) bus for vehicle diagnose.
● Multiple I/O Ports
A MCCC may require video and multi-sensor connectivity, therefore Lanner’s ISD-V330 supports two serial COM ports, two video output by HDMI, USB, and MIO ports, three RJ45 GbE LAN ports, and multiple SATA/mSATA storage options.
● Continuous Connectivity
Every mobile command control center requires secure, always-on connectivity communication system, which can be ensured with multiple wireless connectivity such as VSAT, 4G LTE, FirstNet, 5G, and Wi-Fi. Lanner’s ISD-V330 offers three PGN removable caddy with dual SIM slot supporting 4G LTE/5G cellular and Wi-Fi connections.
● Shock & Vibration Resistance
Lanner’s in-vehicle series are compliant with E13 standard and passed MIL-STD-810G shock and vibration resistance certifications to endure challenging in-vehicle deployments.
● Wide Temperature Support
Temperature is another concern when installed within a vehicle. Lanner’s ISD-V330 supports wide temperature range from -40 to 70°C.
When an emergency or incident occurs, time is of the essence, and public safety agencies need to get up-to-the-minute information to the right resources at the right time. Lanner’s SD-WAN solutions combines the bandwidth from multiple available connections, creating an uninterrupted network with high-speed broadband technologies, such as FirstNet Ready LTE, commercial LTE networks, microwave broadband, as well as VSAT. This generates a reliable and secure inter-agency connection network to send and receive critical mission data (radio, video, reports), while keeping needed resources in the field.
The ISD-V330 is a fanless rugged Multi-WAN in-vehicle SD-WAN featuring IoT-enhanced CPU, with rich I/O functionality and environmental endurance, making it highly applicable in smart bus evolution. ISD-V330 features the new generation 10 nm process SoC (System-on-Chip) Intel Atom® x6000E processor (codenamed Elkhart Lake). This processor consumes low volume of power and delivers the required performance for vehicle computing needs, such as vehicle controls, fleet monitoring, and management systems that synchronize inputs from multiple sensors and direct actions in semiautonomous buses, trains, ships, and trucks.
ISD-V330 offers expandable functionality, boosting an abundance of I/O peripheral connectivity including 1 CAN bus and 2 serial COM ports, 2 video output by HDMI, USB and MIO ports, 3 RJ45 GbE LAN ports and SATA/mSATA storage options. To achieve multi-WAN aggregate wireless network connectivity, ISD-V330 offers 3 PGN removable caddy with dual SIM slot supporting 4G-LTE/5G cellular communications. Additionally, the compact system comes with a native CAN bus for concerns of driving behavior analysis. ISD-V330 is compliant with E13 standard and MIL-STD-810G shock and vibration resistance certifications to ensure proper operations when traveling on rugged roads, in addition to supporting wide temperature range from -40 to 70°C.
