El Paso, TX and Vancouver, BC, August 15, 2011 – In Motion Technology, the leader in mobile networking technologies that efficiently connect and manage equipment, information and people in the field, announced today that El Paso County Enhanced 911 Emergency Communications District is deploying the onBoard Mobile Gateway as the single communications platform to support a county-wide initiative that will improve situational awareness.

The El Paso County Enhanced 911 Emergency Communications District provides enhanced 911 service for the more than 700,000 El Paso County citizens and supports El Paso’s public safety entities of police, sheriff, EMS, fire, hazmat and emergency management. The District provides the county-wide phone systems that deliver the 911 calls to a Public Safety Telecommunicator, a Computer Aided Dispatch system (CAD) that documents and coordinates responder’s actions, network connections among various radio systems which promote interoperability and Geographic Information System (GIS) services which provide maps to public safety entities for response-routing and analysis purposes.

“We needed a hardware system for our public safety vehicles that had the ability to expand to new technologies, condense the number of modems and provide the highest bandwidth connection for our applications and devices”, said JC Ocasio, Network Planning Manager, Information Technology Department, County of El Paso. “In Motion Technology is providing a versatile and powerful device that can serve our current and future mobile communications needs.”

In Motion Technology’s onBoard™ Mobile Gateway turns El Paso’s public safety vehicles into wireless hotspots, providing seamless, secure connectivity to laptops, county-wide CAD system, Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL), E-ticketing, Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR), mobile two finger fast ID, vehicle diagnostic and advanced GPS/AVL systems. The Gateway can be equipped with multiple radio cards, allowing emergency communications to be transmitted over the best available – and most cost effective – wireless network. Radio modules can be easily added or replaced to adapt to the latest network technologies.

“El Paso has taken an unique approach to coordinating county-wide 911 activities by leveraging mobile technology and we are excited to be able to serve them as a customer," said Tony Morris, In Motion Technology’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We believe that El Paso is leading in the new era of police communications and providing their public safety agencies with reliable communications that will improve officer safety and efficiency.”
