ABSTRACT
The article discusses the adoption of broadband solutions by emergency medical services (EMS) in the U.S. to enhance their voice networks. Mobile broadband connectivity would enable EMS personnel provide emergency-room doctors with real-time data about an en-route patients on an ongoing basis, and would also allow those in the ambulance to query databases for key information. An example of a broadband solution is the InMotion mobile gateway in EMS vehicles that send data over the Verizon Wireless or Sprint wireless networks.
