Aegex Technologies joins Verizon and Nokia for second annual public safety technology expo

Perry, Ga., USA. (Sept. 25, 2018) – Aegex Technologies will demonstrate its latest solutions that can assist emergency first responders during Operation Convergent Response (#OCR2018), Nov. 5-8, 2018 at the Guardian Centers in Perry, Ga., USA.

#OCR2018 is the second annual public safety technology expo and live demonstration event hosted by Verizon and Nokia in collaboration with the Guardian Centers and Aegex. #OCR2018 brings together dozens of the world’s most innovative companies to showcase their technologies that can enhance emergency response operations.

During multiple disaster scenarios at #OCR2018, Aegex will demonstrate its aegex10TM Intrinsically Safe Tablets and Aegex IoT Sensor Modules as part of the complete Aegex IoT Solution for Hazardous Locations. The IoT modules, which can be configured to detect dozens of gases each, will report data in real time to the Aegex tablets. The tablets can be used by first responders throughout disaster operations, as they are certified “intrinsically safe,” meaning they do not pose a danger of spark or explosion in highly combustible environments.

Aegex IoT sensor modules will be used to detect gas leaks and air quality during a simulated subway terror attack and an earthquake-induced building collapse, as well as track radiation levels from a nuclear detonation during #OCR2018. The aegex10TM Intrinsically Safe Tablets will be used in these and additional disaster scenarios to track first responders and as means of safe communication among team members and managers and to send and receive real-time information about rescue efforts.
