MONTREAL – June 20, 2019 – Siyata Mobile Inc. (the “Company” or “Siyata”) (TSX-V:SIM / OTCQX:SYATF), a leading provider of in-vehicle communication devices, is pleased to announce the Uniden® UV350 in-vehicle mounted phablet is FirstNet Ready™, making it tested and approved for use with services on the FirstNet communications platform.
FirstNet is built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) – an independent agency within the federal government. It’s designed for first responders and those critical to their emergency response. With this much-needed technology upgrade, first responders can connect to the critical information they need every day and in every emergency.
“FirstNet devices and modules go through extensive review, so First Responders can be confident that Siyata’s UV350 meets the highest standards for reliability, security and performance,” said Bob Sloan, Chief Operating Officer, FirstNet program at AT&T. “The more tools public safety has access to on their network, the more we can help them achieve their mission. We are happy to be the first U.S. cellular carrier to launch Uniden’s NextGen Vehicle Communicator – an innovative in-vehicle mounted phablet. We believe it will be an excellent answer for both existing and newly migrating FirstNet subscribers seeking an in-vehicle communication device.”
The FirstNet Ready UV350 device supports the FirstNet Band 14 spectrum and gives public safety subscribers access to the dedicated, physically separate FirstNet network core. The UV350 is the first in-vehicle mounted phablet that has been tested and approved to operate on FirstNet.
The Uniden® UV350 is built and designed to minimize the excessive clutter often found in the cabin of firetrucks, ambulances and police squad cars, by combining the functions of multiple devices into one. Using AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk or Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC), drivers can communicate with crystal-clear sound at the touch of a button, and unlike traditional cellular communication devices, the UV350 is powered by the vehicle battery, with cellular signal boosting technology to ensure drivers are always connected in emergency situations.
Before being approved for use on FirstNet, devices are subject to hundreds of tests that cover a number of aspects, from security and durability to network impacts. This helps make sure that they can meet the needs of first responders. All FirstNet Ready devices are listed at on the FirstNet device page.
UV350 features include:
- 4G/LTE high speed data
- 5.5” widescreen LED display for easy monitoring
- Dedicated microphone and speaker for crystal-clear extra loud sound quality
- In-vehicle installation ensures device is always powered by the vehicle’s battery
- Extended cellular and GPS coverage with external antenna included
- Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) ensures instant communication at the push of a button
“Drivers who are operating vehicles, whether it is a first responder vehicle or a commercial truck, need to feel safe while communicating important information,” stated Marc Seelenfreund, Siyata Mobile’s CEO. “The demand for a multi-functioning in-vehicle device remains strong, so Siyata is pleased to launch the Uniden UV350. The UV350 allows first responders who are driving to keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel to concentrate on the situation at hand. Safe driving.”
