4G/5G for Ambulance

4G/5G for Ambulance

With waiting times at an all time high, an in-vehicle solution from Westbase Networks can leverage the benefits of 4G/5G for ambulance services, enabling them to respond more quickly and effectively. In addition, by connecting technologies such as body worn cameras can also help to better protect your paramedic teams in the field, so they can do their jobs unhindered by abuse.


Customer success

We’ve worked with over 40 emergency service teams across the UK and Europe to deliver in-vehicle networking – not to mention many other fleet and transportation customers. Check out how we did it and what they achieved by reading some of our case studies:

Norfolk Fire and Rescue

Norfolk Fire and Rescue wanted to deploy an ESN-ready Mobile Data Terminal solution across its fleet of 66 vehicles, click below to see how we achieved this.


Westbase Networks 4G/5G for ambulance service solutions support these use cases...

Advanced Vehicle Location Services and Telematics

For real-time analysis and support of your ambulance fleet. Built in GPS/GNSS and OBD-II integration enables simplified data retrieval, while flexible API integration allows this information to be easily fed into your chosen systems, enabling central teams to monitor vehicle health and provide route assistance for fastest response.

In-Vehicle and Body Worn Cameras

To improve the security of your Paramedics. Westbase.io 4G/5G for ambulance service solutions enable elective retrieval of footage in real-time so that your central support teams can better assist Paramedics who are being abused as it happens.

Mobile Asset Tracking

Ensures that the right equipment is functional and available when it is needed. Using the 4G/5G in-vehicle solution, you can track when an item is removed and if it has been returned to ensure you always have what you need to treat patients in the field.

Mobile WiFi Hotspots

For all of your handheld devices such as phones, tablets and laptops. Enable Paramedics to get online, so they can securely access patient records and update these with live information – allowing them to provide improved care in the field, and ensuring that emergency departments have the latest information to prepare their team and other departments for inbound patients.

Deployment of Specialist Technologies

Such as temperature monitoring for medical fridges, or other connected medical equipment, is enabled by providing the reliable, secure connectivity necessary to embrace these in the field.

Emergency Services Network

The Emergency Services Network (ESN) will initially run alongside the existing TETRA network in the UK, and will leverage both commercial and dedicated 4G/5G networks to fulfil primary communication requirements. Westbase Networks in-vehicle solutions for ambulance services are ESN-ready, with many solutions already deployed in recent years being field upgradable also. These devices are either currently undergoing the approval process or have otherwise already been approved by the Home Office (please call for details).

“Just knowing that the service is reliable, it’s always there and it’s flexible to meet our demands; it is really important to us. Being able to equip our vehicles with 4G technology that delivers real broadband will massively help us deliver what we know is going to happen tomorrow.” 

– Steve Bowyer, Head of IM&T for East Midlands Ambulance Service.†
