The Emergency Services application covers: M2M devices that are worn or carried by emergency services personnel such as body cameras, sensors and fingerprint scanners; ruggedized devices, such as tablets used in police cars or fire engines as part of emergency response; and lone worker alarm solutions, which are used by individuals who work alone in potentially risky situations. In this application we include the following key lone worker segments: paramedics, social workers and estate agents.

The devices covered in this application support better situational awareness for firefighters and police officers (e.g. through video capture or through sensors detecting hazardous chemicals, drugs and explosives), access to remote data for police officers (e.g. from criminal databases), and lone worker safety.

This Application Spotlight provides a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the M2M market related to Emergency Services. It provides a definition, description, analysis of drivers and barrier, and high level forecasts for growth in connections, technology split and revenue opportunity.
