Dejero Delivers Resilient Connectivity to Pilot COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Site in California

Dejero GateWay network aggregation device provides Wi-Fi and media uplink capabilities at large-scale vaccination site at California State University

To support the recent opening of a mass vaccination site at California State University’s LA campus, Dejero provided the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) with Dejero GateWay network aggregation technology to ensure a reliable media communications uplink for key media and government representatives including the Governor’s office.

In an environment where cellular networks were heavily congested due to the thousands being vaccinated and the vast media presence, a Dejero GateWay network aggregation device, offering access to LTE networks as well as a Satcom link, was used to bypass the network congestion and ensure the delivery of critical coverage to media outlets. The GateWay device was used to support all media feeds for Cal OES. The Dejero GateWay also delivered content to Cal OES’s social media platforms via their public information office (PIO).

“We are delighted to have been able to support Cal OES’s requirements to deliver the critical connectivity they needed at very short notice,” said Bogdan Frusina, founder of Dejero. “Similar vaccinations sites are popping up all over the country that lack the critical connectivity necessary to provide both media outlets, as well as first responders and health professionals with more secure, fail-proof coverage than a single LTE network.”

Frusina continued, “The Dejero GateWay is used to provide a media uplink, but also as the backbone of a local operational network at a vaccine site, or to help move data from system to system. It is a very versatile solution that is ideal for this type of congested environment.”

Aggregating diverse connectivity paths from multiple providers, GateWay network aggregation devices feature Dejero Smart Blending Technology to deliver enhanced reliability, expanded coverage, and greater bandwidth. GateWay delivers reliable wireless connectivity for applications such as voice, video, and data communication while in nomadic or mobile environments, as well as adding wireless connectivity to fixed locations.

Dejero GateWay devices are FirstNet Ready™, and available for use on FirstNet®. FirstNet is built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) – an independent agency within the U.S. federal government. It is designed with and for first responders and public safety agencies along with the extended community that could be called on to support them.
