North Carolina EMS implements mobile wireless gateways using In Motion Technology

From the In Motion press release:

North Carolina's Piedmont Triad Ambulance and Rescue has deployed In Motion’s onBoardTM Mobile Gateway to improve emergency operations and coordination with other first responders.

The onBoard Mobile Gateway is installed in emergency vehicles to create a “vehicle area network.” This network integrates all data communications, including medical devices, patient care records, GPS, driver and safety monitoring and dispatch systems. It allows the seamless transmission of information between these systems in the field and operations command.

The Mobile Gateway provides the ambulance with a satellite-guided route to the hospital, as well as transmitting patient data in advance to the ER and providing a print out before the ambulance arrives.

In Motion is located in Vancouver, B.C.

UPDATE from the In Motion Technology Web site:


Through the convergence of next generation LAN and WAN technologies including Ethernet, 802.11/WiFi, 3G and 4G networks including 802.20, authorized users are simply, securely, cost-effectively and transparently connected to standard communications and collaboration applications via virtual private networks (VPNs). Secure end-to-end networking is provided by support for standards-based, IPSec, PPTP-based VPNs and Mobile IP. No client software or hardware installation is required.  Authorized users simply turn on their WiFi-equipped laptops or PDAs and connect to the onBoard Mobile Gateway using their proprietary VPN clients or standards-based 802.11i secure wireless networking technology.

NB: 802.20 is the IEEE Mobile Broadband Wireless Access (MBWA) working group.
