Processing this flood of data, especially streaming video, can consume a significant chunk of bandwidth, potentially blocking other critical incoming and outgoing information—and slowing response times. As the adoption of 5G technology increases, 5G will enhance fire safety use cases and help to enable other new video feeds into Incident Command operations.
Keeping firefighters and the community safe is not a cheap exercise. Solutions such as telematics can help monitor key performance metrics to help promote safety, improve routing, reduce idling and fuel consumption, increase resource utilization—and help curb costs.
