Mobile Public Safety

For mobile police, fire, and emergency medical service workers, fast access and response is critical and can mean the difference between life and death. The ability to quickly access information and communicate from the field to other officers and headquarters is crucial.

  • Police Officers have high-speed access to data and video enabling them to identify suspects in the field, spending more time on the street protecting the community.
  • Fire Fighters are better prepared when they arrive having been able to download building blueprints and hazmat data while in transit to a location.
  • Emergency Medical Technicians can communicate live with doctors, providing a patient's vitals and live video of injuries while en route, enabling the hospital to be better prepped to assist trauma patients when they arrive.

Video Surveillance

Video surveillance provides a cost-effective alternative for public safety workers to monitor activities in almost any location, without adding more feet on the street. Both fixed and mobile video services can be deployed to deliver a range of benefits to communities while increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of public safety workers.

  • Police officers can centrally monitor high crime locations providing early awareness of potential problems, helping increase community safety and improve police efficiency. Fixed and in-vehicle video feeds can be monitored at a central site as well as streamed to police cars so that multiple officers can view a crime in progress and be prepared when they arrive on scene.
  • Fire fighters can get advanced warning of wildfires by monitoring vulnerable areas with video surveillance cameras during times of high fire danger. Even remote locations can be served by solar-powered video cameras and GTP router nodes.

Utility Meter Reading

As part of an Automated Meter Reading/Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMR/AMI) solution, cities can move away from manual utility meter reading or drive-by solutions to digital meters that link wirelessly to a central network - saving time and cost while improving customer service and ability to accurately monitor and control valuable resources.

  • Lower operating costs - Fewer personnel required in the field, lowering transportation, insurance, and medical costs. Detailed data uncovers problems quickly and reduces fraud.
  • Encourage conservation - Customers can see their usage at any time, helping conservation efforts, and quickly detecting water leaks or faulty thermostats so corrective action can be quickly taken.
  • Improve customer service and satisfaction - Utilities can pinpoint system problems - leaks or outages - before customers report them, reducing downtime.

Intellegant Transportation System

Improving traffic flow, reducing commute times and timing of signals for public are just a few of the uses for intelligent transportation systems (ITS). Intelligent traffic solutions collect information at signals all around the city, correlate the real-time data and can automatically regulate traffic policies. ITS includes a range of applications that can benefit cities such as:

  • Intelligent Traffic Signal Management - Actively managed and coordinated traffic signals can reduce congestion and moderate traffic speeds, smoothing traffic flow and reducing auto emission levels.
  • Video Analytics - Real-time video enables traffic controllers to identify problems, record and ticket red light runners, gather traffic analytics information and enforce special traffic zones. Public safety workers may also access the video to identify traffic conditions so they can route around congested roads when responding to an emergency.

Municipal Modernization and Mobility

City after city is showing that productivity increases when public employees are able to access the same resources from the field as they can in the office. GTP MetroMesh networks provide city employees with secure access to the information they need, wherever they are around town, enabling them to do their jobs more efficiently and benefiting the community.

  • Building and code inspectors can file reports and access building codes while on site, increasing customer satisfaction and speeding the approval process.
  • Utility crews can receive work orders while in the field, eliminating the need to return to the yard to file paperwork or receive new instructions. In the event of an emergency, GPS can be used to identify the closest crew enabling them to quickly arrive at a problem site.
  • City planners can access building and zoning plans while in the field, reducing time and expense on travel to/from the office as well as speeding filing of approvals.


Industrial sites are often characterized by punishing heat and cold, extreme vibration, and connectivity requirements over many acres - even square miles. Despite hostile conditions, industrial sites need the same communication capabilities as office environments for the proper coordination of people, processes, and resources. GTP MetroMesh networks cost-effectively provide outdoor broadband networking in industrial environments to improve business operational efficiencies and reduce cost.

  • Shipping Container Management - Using handheld scanners, personnel throughout port operations can track containers as they traverse their way through a port, enabling monitoring of container location as well as special requirements such as refrigeration.
  • Mining Operations - Mining management systems precisely and continuously monitor and control operations across a site. Remotely diagnosing problems on heavy equipment in the field - sometimes 100 miles away from the operations center - reduces downtime.

Public Access

Publicly accessible Wi-Fi mesh networks are being deployed in cities around the world, providing new capabilities and services for citizens and subscribers. GTP MetroMesh broadband Internet access can be deployed more quickly, with lower capital costs and operating expenses per subscriber than competing technologies, with the following benefits:

  • Speed - True broadband speed provides greater than one Mbps symmetrical throughput.
  • Economics - Lower capital expenditure and operating costs, plus quick installation means reaching more customers faster than wireline technologies.
  • Service quality - Local and national surveys show that customers are overwhelmingly happy with their municipal Wi-Fi service and ability to access the network from home and around town.
