Sonim Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

Sonim Technologies, Inc. Announces Heightened Security at "The Big Game" Required Sonim and its Ecosystem Partners to Deploy an End-to-End Communications Solution

Sonim Technologies provided 35 XP7 smartphones to the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center (NCRIC) and the FBI during "The Big Game," which required the most significant security presence at any event in the history of the San Francisco Bay area. Given the heightened security conditions and the tens of thousands of football fans who ascended upon Levi's® Stadium on Feb. 7 and the days leading up to the event, the NCRIC and FBI faced several challenges: 1) the need for a reliable, resilient network that would not be impacted by network congestion; 2) the need for interoperability between agencies; and 3) the need for FirstNet-ready devices with access to mission-critical apps required to support public safety operations. Sonim partnered with Parallel Wireless, Mutualink and ESChat to deliver a reliable, seamless end-to-end communications solution integrated on Sonim's XP7 LTE Android smartphone during the event. To address the challenge of reliable network capabilities, the integration of FirstNet required a mobile solution that enabled first responders to bring their coverage with them. Parallel Wireless provided two eNodeB radios, which focus on using low-cost, portable and easy to deploy small cells (known as CWS). The eNodeB, which is the size of a brief case and mounted on a 10-foot light tower, provided Band 14 network coverage over the entire venue. The network was managed by Parallel Wireless' HetNet Gateway (HNG). HNG is the industry's first public-safety-grade, 3GPP compliant RAN orchestrator that made this network self-configuring, self-optimizing, and self-healing. Interoperability between NCRIC and the FBI was also crucial. Mutualink's interoperable communications platform enabled secure, real-time sharing of radio, voice, text, video and data between the agencies. Mutualink serves as a gateway to bridge disparate systems so that all parties responding to an emergency can communicate and collaborate in real time.

Sonim Technologies, Inc. Announces Executive Appointments

Sonim Technologies welcomed two new members to its growing Public Safety Advisory Council (PSAC). The PSAC, which provides strategic guidance to senior Sonim executives and Sonim'sPublic Safety Advisory Board on important public safety directives, will gain valuable law enforcement and wildland fire expertise with the addition of John Flynn and Bob Roper. John Flynn is the Executive Vice President for the National Association of Police Organizations. Mr. Flynn also serves as Manhattan's south trustee for the New York City Patrolmen's Benevolent Association. Bob Roper brings more than 35 years of experience as a fire professional to the PSAC. He worked himself up the ranks from Volunteer Firefighter to Fire Chief for the Ventura County Fire Department in Ventura, Calif. Mr. Roper has also served as Chair of the International Association of Fire Chiefs - Wildland Fire Policy Committee for the past seven years, where he worked on national wildland fire issues.

Sonim Technologies and Star Solutions partner to provide portable Band 14 LTE networks

Sonim Technologies and Star Solutions have partnered to provide portable Band 14 LTE networks to U.S. and Canadian public safety agencies. The dedicated Band 14 LTE network provides a high-speed wireless data pipeline that is not impacted by or available to the general public. This allows first responders the bandwidth required to send sensitive information, place and receive calls, and share data, including video, regardless of the conditions of commercial networks. Star Solution's IMPAC System is a complete LTE Network in a backpack form factor that is capable of providing broadband coverage in any environment. The IMPAC System can be battery powered and is easy to transport making it an excellent solution for emergency or incident response and disaster recovery. Operation is quick and easy as a single switch enables a LTE network to be deployed in under five minutes. Sonim's Band 14 capable XP7 meets Sonim's Rugged Performance Standards (RPS), which go far beyond basic MIL-Spec and IP certifications. Standard features include an extra-loud speaker, noise cancellation, a powerful, 4,800-milliamp battery, resistance to submersion in water, an ability to withstand drops onto concrete surfaces and ease of use with dirty or wet work gloves. The IMPAC System includes LTE core network and eNodeB components enabling it to be used in stand-alone mode or integrated as part of a Public Safety Broadband Network. The combination of the IMPAC System with Sonim's Band 14-capable XP7 ultra-rugged handset has allowed customers to address remote deployment and incident response requirements for broadband communications.
