Episode 79 - 5G-connected disaster response vehicle

Ericsson and Verizon are paving the way for secure, mobile critical communications response services in the form of mobile on-site networks and 'networks on wheels'. We explore what's happening in the THOR project with Blaze Vincent from Ericsson and Carlo Thompson from Verizon. The THOR (Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response) project is a rapidly deployable emergency response network solution, with 4G and 5G capabilities, as well as microwave and satellite links. These vehicles provide the communications that are needed in emergencies and allow other technologies to connect, in order to extract data and implement communication solutions quickly. To read more about this award-winning solution, check out Blaze's blog here:
