Achieve Unbreakable Connectivity

Use our patented SpeedFusion technology to combine ESN and commercial links into an unbreakable VPN connection that stays up even if a link goes down. As traffic goes from one WAN to the next, your session will continue streaming without any interruption. SpeedFusion also has greater coverage and bandwidth than that of a single cellular link.


Currently, first responders can only record video on site; live streaming remains a challenge. Use SpeedFusion to bond multiple cellular links into a powerful VPN connection that can stream HD video back to headquarters. WAN Smoothing technology ensures that your video stream remains consistent and uninterrupted even as traffic moves between different WAN links.

Extend 2-Way Radios Anywhere

Previously, 2-way radios such as LMR, P.25, TETRA, NXDN, and DMR only worked with other radios connected to the same repeater. With SpeedFusion, they become a single unbreakable network. This extends the reach of existing 2-way radio networks to anywhere an LTE or other IP network is available.
