The frequency and impact that forest fires have on the Forest Service and the United States every year is significant.
Staying 100% connected in dynamic, challenging environments is crucial, particularly when lives and property are on the line. Kymeta solutions provide the real-time updates and always-on connectivity, that firefighters and emergency responders need, even in remote areas where communications capabilities are non-existent.
Kymeta solutions work with existing tools and don’t require special training or expertise to implement.
Our low-profile terminals mount easily onto a variety of emergency response vehicles to maintain seamless connectivity while on the move.
Earlier this year, Kymeta visited firefighters in California to demonstrate our next-generation Kymeta u8 terminal.
The team drove into the San Gabriel Mountains where cellular coverage was completely lost after 15 minutes Kymeta solutions enabled a Deputy Forest Fire Chief to successfully FaceTime and make Wi-Fi calls using his regular mobile phone.
In addition, a Kymeta u7 terminal was also used to coordinate a water drop via helicopter, which requires seamless connectivity and real-time updates to the command center. Kymeta solutions worked flawlessly.
In the field, reliable communication can be a matter of life and death. Make sure you’re always connected with Kymeta.
