Swisscom and Cisco launch a pioneer project to transform police vehicles into mobile offices

Friday, 12 April 2019

How to transform a police car into a secured mobile office? This was the amazing challenge proposed by the Kantonspolizei (Kapo) of St. Gallen.

Until now, their emergency vehicles and patrol boats had only GPS tracking devices onboard. The officers used their smartphones to access the Internet, and it was not possible to record or input data on site with a tablet.

Swisscom and Cisco worked together in a pioneer project in Switzerland, to provide WLAN and GPS functionalities in one router, available for vehicles.

Now, 200 emergency cars and three patrol boats of Kapo St. Gallen are equipped with high-precision GPS technology and a powerful and secured WLAN, both combined in a single device.
