    Step inside


Mobile Network as a Service

Verizon’s mobile network on wheels brings internet and cellular communications to remote and isolated areas during an emergency.

Network slicing

Allocated bandwidth to public safety agencies in an area with dedicated network resources. This helps to ensure emergency response channels are kept clear.

Situational awareness

With multiple cameras and sensors, first responders and military personnel can provide actionable data for complex decision-making in near real time.

Tethered drone

THOR’s drone flies up to 300 feet into the air, providing a clearer view of what’s happening on the ground during an emergency—automatically tracking personnel with AI camera software. 

THOR’s hammer

A 30-foot trailer with dual-core network capabilities, the hammer enables apps that require near real-time responsive technologies. Enterprises can customize a larger variety of components within the trailer for their emergency response needs.

Private 5G MEC model and Ultra Wideband network / edge computing

Our 5G Ultra Wideband provides the best, most resilient wireless connection with 
multi-access edge computing (MEC), helping to keep teams connected—even in the harshest conditions.
