When you’re working on the frontline – in fast-paced, sometimes dangerous, environments – you need technology that can keep up.
Emergency operations demand live access to video feeds, so the record-only, body-worn cameras used historically don’t provide the accurate information in real time for decision making.Edge intelligence provider, Digital Barriers has changed that. It’s using low-bandwidth live video streaming and analytics to give its customers immediate intelligence and – with the aid of Distributed Multi-Access Edge Computing – real-time situational awareness, wherever the location. Its solutions enable time-critical decision-making, and help keep mobile workers safe and secure.
When Digital Barriers started out 10 years ago, its key public sector customers needed tech solutions to consistently stream video and perform AI analytics from remote, large and often hostile locations.
Today, Digital Barriers works with various other emergency services – and when every second counts, the demand for reliable intelligence is as crucial as ever.
For first responders attending an incident, improving their emergency response is essential – any delays could be life-changing. They need technology that can help them overcome key challenges such as:
Using Vodafone Business Distributed Edge with AWS, Digital Barriers are helping first responders to overcome these challenges. This ground-breaking technology is helping to:
Vodafone Business’s collaboration with AWS brings to life Distributed Edge Computing by locating AWS infrastructure at the edge of the Vodafone 4G and 5G network.

Hospital staff can prepare better for a patient’s arrival if vital information about their condition is made available. The capability allows clinicians and trauma teams to make informed decisions by obtaining a full picture of the situation as events unfold. This information can also be shared at local, regional and national levels across multiple agencies for real-time situational awareness, as well as a coordinated and timely response to any incident
Having a view of officers on the ground and their location allows command and control to allocate the most appropriate person based on location and the skills required. In any scenario when milliseconds matter, this can all make an incredible difference.
What we can do now with Distributed Edge Computing is astonishing. We're turning what were once fantastic possibilities into incredible realities. I think it’s critical for customers to benefit from this immediately”.Zak Doffman CEO, Digital Barriers
