The Star Solutions team has participated in a number of Public Safety industry demonstrations and conferences in 2016. If you are interested in seeing our deployables in action, contact our team and let’s see how we can help you out!
The PSCR team in Colorado leverages our deployables to help set up demonstration or temporary networks to showcase public safety broadband networks at work. They discuss deployables recently in a NIST blog entry, the “Rapidly Deployable Public Safety Research Platform” is powered by our deployable system and showcases potential users how enabling broadband can be reliable and easy!
Earlier in May our team supported the XPSLTE 2016 event hosted by Firstnet Colorado. Here’s a recap video that the Firstnet Colorado team posted recently.
We’re not done yet, next month in October, Star Solutions will be exhibiting deployable broadband Band 14 LTE network equipment at IACP San Diego (Booth 3756).

This year at Mobile World Congress we announced the availability of a system solution COD, or Cellular network On Drone. Press and media article references are listed below. At MWC we’re in Hall 7, Stand 7H40. Product Announcement PR
While intended primarily for search and rescue deployment activities, the COD can also be used to deliver SMS Broadcast messages in a disaster response scenario to locations with little or no cell coverage.
Star Solutions is releasing two whitepapers based on solutions we have provided to our customers worldwide. The whitepapers are briefly described below with separate download links provided.
Rural Broadband: Keeping it Simple
The Canadian federal government recently announced its strategy, Digital Canada 150, to enable Canadians to take full advantage of the opportunities of the digital age. One of the five pillars of the strategy, titled Connecting Canadians, highlights enabling broadband Internet services for 280,000 Canadian households in rural and remote areas. Affordable connectivity in rural and remote parts of Canada is a challenge.
We recently announced a new IMPAC System capable of supporting 4G LTE technology. First responders and public safety practitionners in many countries rely on broadband networks to help them complete their job functions. During a disaster event or incident situation they need to have these communications capabilities available to them. Traditionally mobile network operators have deployed cell on wheels (COWs) to restore or recover cellular network coverage when their normal equipment goes out of service.
Star Solutions’ IMPAC System enables public safety practitionners to take with them cellular networks to meet event the most challenging disaster situations and quickly set up communications in the field. These two videos below provide you with a glimpse of how the IMPAC System can be deployed.
Local business magazine – Business in Vancouver – writes about Star Solutions and our solution capabilities for our key market segments in rural and remote connectivity as well as public safety emergency communications.
