  • For Immediate Release

    Tecore’s Network in a Box Specifically Designed for Mission Critical Public Safety Network Coverage will be featured at APCO Booth 153

    Baltimore, Maryland, August 12, 2019 – Tecore Networks is pleased to announce that they will be exhibiting at the APCO International Exhibition in Baltimore beginning today. The requirements needed for tactical LTE solutions for Public Safety Personnel at the edge align perfectly with Tecore’s IOPS Network in Box® (NIB) capabilities. The IOPS NIB plays a crucial role for FirstNet’s dedicated public safety network by ensuring stable, seamless, and reliable network coverage in unfavorable environments. Tecore’s Industry Experts will be available at Booth No. 153 to expand on the range of deployment scenarios and requirement capabilities the IOPS NIB meets.  

    “Our Family of Network in Box solutions are proven and have been deployed by commercial and military networks globally under some of the harshest environmental and operational conditions. We pride ourselves on the multitude of capabilities and significant amount of experience we have accumulated specifically related to reliable mission critical communications”, said Timothy Smith – Vice President of Business Development for Tecore Networks. “We offer a straight-forward approach with one BOX that supplies the entire communications infrastructure in a highly portable package to offer a new level of service which supports multiple LTE bands and is 5G ready.”

    During the design process particular attention was placed on Size, Weight, and Performance (SWaP) factors to provide a highly portable solution for the introduction or continuation of LTE coverage in isolated areas where there is an immediate and critical need for communications to support public safety or disaster related activities. All of the hardware and software components necessary for a complete 4G LTE network operation are self-contained in Tecore’s IOPS NIB solution. This strategic design allows it to operate as part of an integrated communication infrastructure or as an island of coverage delivering localized services and capabilities to an isolated group. When no backhaul connection is available or feasible due to environmental terrain, natural disaster or during a public crisis, a single IOPS NIB provides a dedicated network for coverage up to 1,000 subscribers to call, text, share multimedia and communicate in real-time.

    The small portable form factor also meets mission critical public safety needs by permitting communications where and when they are needed. The flexibility enables multiple deployment scenarios including man-packable, vehicle based (air, land and sea) deployments, mobile and central command center interoperability across all Public Safety departments and agencies.

    Effective public safety communications require flexibility, control and the ability to provide consistent communications, regardless of the situation. Tecore Executives will be available at the APCO International Conference and Expo at Booth 153 on August 12th and 13th to discuss how the IOPS NIB can expand Band 14 communications to the edge when it’s needed most.
