Rugged Phones and Accessories Keep Our First Responders Connected

Posted by Two Way Direct on 23rd Aug 2019

Mobile data and apps are empowering First Responders to stay connected and safe at all times. With the unmatched capabilities of rugged smartphones, they are quickly becoming mission-critical tools for First Responders across the country. Push-To-Talk Over Cellular makes it easy for talk groups to stay connected, no matter the range or distance of its members. In addition, Land Mobile Radio (LMR) interoperability expands communication even further.

In addition to interoperability, rugged devices can be fitted with accessories to give users increased flexibility and usability in the field. Certified applications further streamline mobile solutions by eliminating the need for multiple devices and giving First Responders access to cloud-based systems from one device.

Rugged Devices Designed For First Responders

Kyocera is dedicated to designing rugged devices for First Responders and public safety staff.  Kyocera’s DuraForce PRO 2 is the ultimate durable Android Smartphone solution for mission-critical jobs.

DuraForce PRO 2 allows clear transmission and reception of critical information, even in the noisiest environments. The advanced echo and noise cancelling system features four powerful microphones to capture sounds while eliminating background noise, while the loud dual front speakers deliver crisp audio at up to 106dB.

FirstNet Ready™ Kyocera DuraForce PRO 2

Reliable connectivity is crucial in a crisis. The Kyocera DuraForce PRO 2 is FirstNet Ready, meaning the phone has passed a certification process to ensure performance that can be relied upon for First Responders and disaster situations. Activating the device with FirstNet, AT&T’s nationwide broadband network for Public Safety, will keep the team connected at all times.

Accessories For DuraForce PRO 2

Whether it’s a case to provide more protection, a belt clip to secure the device on a uniform, or an extra battery pack for long shifts, Kyocera has the right accessories for First Responders. Kyocera has also recently teamed up with VIBES Modular to create a unique interchangeable accessory system for DuraForce PRO 2.

The VIBES Multipurpose Case provides a standardized base for easy connecting and swapping of accessories, with no tools required. Accessories from VIBES Modular include a 3000mAh Extended Battery Pack, Pocket Clip, Action Camera Mount, and even a Smart Laser Measuring Tool.
