Motorola Debuts In-Vehicle LTE for First Responders

Motorola introduced two LTE devices aimed at public safety applications.

The VML700 LTE Vehicle Modem connects equipment in the patrol car, fire apparatus, or command vehicle to Band Class 14 LTE networks. The solid state device can also connect to EVDO and WiFi networks. It is built to withstand heat, cold, rain, dust, humidity and vibration
