Dejero GateWay provides MIU-55 with resilient internet connectivity, eliminating the vulnerability of relying on a single network connection
Dejero and AV specialist Lexicon Enterprises have partnered to develop the Mobile Intelligence Unit (MIU-55), a fully turn-key mobile command solution for law enforcement and tactical operations.
The MIU-55 can be deployed within 60 seconds in any operational location, with no prior training, for instant access to live intelligence via drone video, fixed cameras, tactical mapping, police CAD integration, DVR video playback or on-site live video conferencing, made possible by the resilient internet connection delivered by Dejero.
The MIU-55 can be deployed in any type of landscape, to provide a fully integrated temporary network operations centre (NOC) for C2 disaster-related command and control communication. It comes with a 4K camera system, a 55” 4K touchscreen, has a 2.5 hour battery life and is solar-power ready. It can monitor unlimited amounts of video feeds from a variety of sources.
Using Dejero’s Smart Blending Technology — which dynamically and intelligently manages the fluctuating bandwidth, packet loss, and latency differences of individual connections in real-time — a Dejero GateWay network aggregation device combines diverse connectivity paths from multiple providers to connect with the Dejero GateWay Cloud Service to route real-time video and data. The technology delivers the connection diversity, redundancy and bandwidth required for critical communications. It allows users of the MIU-55 to create an encrypted Wi-Fi hotspot, providing law enforcement and tactical operations agencies with a real-time, standalone internet connection in challenging terrain or remote locations.
Following extremely successful prototype testing with the California Department of Forestry and Wildfire Protection (Cal FIRE), the MIU-55 was used to support a number of government agencies during the latest presidential inauguration in the United States. From outside the US Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), the MIU-55 delivered situational awareness from up to 10 simultaneous feeds and two locations — including from fixed cameras and thermal imaging drones — to agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the LA Police Department (LAPD), the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The MIU-55 also provided the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) with full internet connectivity at the recent opening of a mass COVID-19 vaccination site. The Dejero GateWay solution supported the flawless streaming of the Governor of California’s speech, providing a reliable media communications uplink to bypass connectivity difficulties faced by other technologies.
President of Lexicon Enterprises Billy Farah commented, “Dejero has been really invaluable. They have delivered connectivity far and beyond what we have seen in the field before and that connectivity has been extremely reliable. Without the Dejero technology, we wouldn’t be able to operate. During the presidential inauguration we monitored the upload and download speeds to ensure we didn’t run into latency issues or feed loss. The whole time, the connectivity provided by Dejero was rock solid.”
“We are delighted to have helped bring the MIU-55 to life,” added Bogdan Frusina, founder of Dejero. “This system, which integrates with Dejero GateWay, was put through its paces by emergency fire-service tactical crews during the latest wildfire season. It improved communications in locations that had a damaged or non-existent communications infrastructure. Lexicon have turned the MIU-55 into a game-changing turnkey mobile command solution for public safety agencies that depend on critical communications.”
