Panasonic and First Responders: A Shared Mission
As a FirstNet© Dealer, Panasonic is proud to support the first nationwide dedicated wireless broadband communication network for public safety professionals that connects them when it matters most. We offer a diverse array of trusted Panasonic Toughbook® -based mobile solutions to help first responders stay safe, connected and in control during the toughest emergencies.
FirstNet gives first responders, and those who support them, access to priority and, as applicable, preemption services over a dedicated LTE network core, with coverage that will reach more than 99% of Americans. And with greater network capacity for sending and receiving voice, data, video, images, and text messages, emergency responders can use their mobile devices to access the near real-time data and the apps they need to improve situational awareness on the front lines, coordinate better with each other and work more efficiently and effectively.
That keeps the focus on what matters most – saving lives and protecting their communities.
