IQ OTA allows quick delivery of the most recent and accurate data files and software via IP networks, requiring fewer personnel while keeping more vehicles in-service.

"What used to take us weeks to accomplish can now be done in a matter of hours with IQ OTA," says Scott England, Telecommunication Engineer at Los Angeles County Fire Department. "Giving our mobile responders access to the most current data files and software so they can do their jobs safely and effectively is one of our top priorities. IQ OTA helps us achieve that."
With the proliferation of mobile devices used to deliver critical data to personnel during an emergency response, fire & EMS agencies are faced with the challenge of keeping hundreds or even thousands of devices synchronized with the latest software and data. These updates range from hundreds of megabytes to tens of gigabytes and take a long time to download over wireless networks with limited bandwidth. IQ OTA gives agencies the ability to deliver large data files and software updates with integrity, security, and efficiency over unreliable and even intermittent networks.
"IQ OTA addresses our fire & EMS customers' need for faster and more reliable data transmission both to and from mobile units," says Jim Moore, CEO at RadioMobile. "And since IQ OTA is a hosted service, they avoid the expense of maintaining costly servers in order to provide critical updates while only paying for exactly what they need."
