DirectView Holdings to Join US 4G LTE Network

DirectView Holdings, a provider of video surveillance equipment, recently announced that it will soon make its body-worn cameras available for connection to “America's largest 4G LTE network.”

Although that moniker may be familiar and readers can speculate about the specific mobile carrier involved, DirectView has only referred to the carrier by that title. Regardless of affiliation, however, the two companies have been working together to make sure that the body cams will be able to transfer seamlessly from business communication networks to a nationwide 4G LTE network that will remain secure. Roger Ralston, the CEO of DirectView, spoke about his company's goal of separating itself from market competitors.

“We are very excited to provide this update and are looking forward to the future possibilities,” Ralston said. “Adding connectivity with the largest 4G LTE network in North America is a large part of our strategic plan to differentiate DirectView's streaming security products from any others in the marketplace. This truly makes us unique. Upon successfully enabling connectivity with this premier 4G LTE carrier we will take a major step forward in reaching that goal.”

He also indicated that DirectView intends to complete a full product launch during the second half of 2015 which will result in a co-marketed product. It was not clear whether or not the marketing would contain branding from both the video surveillance company and its partnering telecom.

Differentiation in the market will take place through DirectView's unique access to the 4G LTE system that will benefit from tested integration between the cameras and the network. Groups from all manner of business, including security for those businesses and dedicated law enforcement, could be confident in their hardware's ability to send data transmissions at high speeds as recordings take place. Furthermore, they can be sure that network security will aid those transmission so data is not intercepted or altered in any way beyond its original form.
