Leveraging the latest features of Evolution 3.3, IP Access now offers data speeds on the network for customers up to 20 Mbps on the downlink and 5 Mbps on the uplink. More efficient returns, along with improved waveforms and lower outbound roll-off via Adaptive TDMA enables agencies to create dedicated on-demand bandwidth groups. This enables the sharing of dedicated bandwidth among their vehicles, or with cooperating agencies. This is ideal for emergency management and disaster recovery customers such as the National Guard, which need access to additional bandwidth to stream HD video during an incident.

“The IP Access community of first responders work in some of the most demanding conditions around the globe, requiring the use of a very high-end, high-speed set of applications. By upgrading to Evolution 3.3 we are now able to configure our network in a way that takes full advantage of bandwidth efficiencies in order to create new on-demand service packages that fit the specific needs of these customers,” says Alan Rich, President, IP Access International.
