PMRExpo 2019: Connecting vehicles to the control centres via LTE-A, safe and broadband! Moving and semi-stationary!

Heuchelheim, 27.10.2019: IPmotion exhibits for the third time in Cologne at the PMRExpo. The focus this year is on modularity, adaptability and upgradeability of the CAR-A-WAN.112 system.

IPmotion shows customer specific extensions of its mobile router series at the Cologne fair in hall 10.2, booth D10 from 26th to 28th November 2019. Special attention will be paid to the control station connection using the LTE/WLAN switchover method with the Station Link function.

For THW Erfurt: Solution for mast mounting on existing antenna carrier

For vehicles with retractable antenna masts, IPmotion has implemented a spatial combination of router and antenna for the OV Erfurt technical relief organization, which is lifted to clear heights together with pump masts and antennas of the 2 or 4 meter band, thus ensuring greater range for LTE-A and local WLAN. Shortest cable routes and a higher location ensure best reception.

For fire and rescue services: Automatic switchover from WLAN to LTE-A

Station-Link uses the local WLAN, e.g. the guard or a well-known WLAN hotspot, to save mobile phone costs. It can also intelligently extend secure networks to the vehicle and its components in order to simplify the management of the vehicle fleet.

For the future: Less electronic scrap through modular design

Even if LTE remains active for a long time, hardware design today already has to address three challenges if sustainability of the production of mobile radio components is to be on the agenda:

  • Can future (5G) modems be integrated?
  • Are the antenna systems also Sub-6GHz-Ready?
  • Can the data throughput of the future modems be processed in the router?

Discuss these and other topics with us and design the next development steps and milestones. We are looking forward to your visit and ask you to make an appointment.
