The GPSD MiMo Sharkee sets Pasadena Fire Department’s communications ablaze!
Pasadena Fire Department is the largest single municipal volunteer fire department in the United States. They have recently started to upgrade their fleet of vehicles and needed an antenna to provide connectivity for a range of very different vehicles.
Responding to a wide variety of different incidents their responder teams need to access a lot of different information while on the go. Therefore, they need excellent connectivity wherever they are.
A versatile antenna that was still able to give top tier connectivity was required
