Company will exhibit and host an expert panel on “The Next-Generation Cruiser” and its evolving law enforcement and safety technology and in-vehicle networking requirements
BOISE, Idaho — April 29, 2019 — Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G Ready wireless network edge solutions, today confirmed that it is a platinum sponsor of Axon Accelerate 2019, one of the world’s leading public safety technology conferences. Axon Accelerate 2019 takes place April 29 through May 1, 2019 at the Sheraton Grand in Downtown Phoenix.
Cradlepoint will exhibit its public safety wireless edge solutions that provide Gigabit-Class LTE connectivity for station and command center, vehicle and IoT use cases at booth 3. The company's chief marketing officer, Todd Krautkremer, will also host and moderate a panel discussion titled, The Next-Generation Cruiser, on Wednesday, May 1, at 2:15 p.m. Taking place during breakout session five, Cradlepoint customers Milwaukee Police Department and Nevada Highway Patrol will examine evolving law enforcement and safety technology for cruisers and its role as a mission-critical communications hub, as well as the requirements for LTE, public safety cores and 5G.
Directly preceding the panel discussion, Cradlepoint and Axon will provide a live demonstration of an Axon body-worn camera offloading captured video to their Evidence.com cloud through a Cradlepoint in-vehicle router configured for WiFi-as-WAN functionality.
Axon Accelerate attendees will have a chance during the event to learn more about Cradlepoint's FirstConnect™ program for first responder organizations. FirstConnect is specifically designed to help police, fire and emergency services customers overcome many of the budgetary, logistical and operational challenges typically faced when deploying new cellular router solutions.
“The modern police cruiser is no longer just a means of conveyance for patrolling towns, cities, and highways, it’s now a vital hub that provides real-time communications in and around the vehicle and links devices, sensors and cameras to the command center and the cloud,” said Todd Krautkremer, chief marketing officer at Cradlepoint. “As cruisers evolve, the speed, connectivity, reliability, and security of the in-vehicle network must also evolve —making them sophisticated as an enterprise network and making Cradlepoint’s enterprise expertise a real advantage for public safety agencies.”
Cradlepoint has more than 3,000 public safety customers including 73 percent of the most populous U.S. cities and four of the five largest police departments. The company entered into a partnership with Axon in June 2016 to provide in-field connectivity solutions and recently awarded Axon with Mobile Partner of the Year honors at the 2019 Cradlepoint Connect partner summit in San Diego.
