The world we live in is becoming increasingly connectivity-centric. The number of devices used in the field is ever-increasing and reliable connectivity is critical for any number of smart devices to function.
Devices like body-worn cameras and UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) rely on varying degrees of connectivity.
At Excelerate, we streamline connectivity by developing solutions that are simple and user-friendly. For us, it’s about making complex technologies simple so that responders can focus on the task at hand, rather than technology.
POLICE & COUNTER TERROR
Excelerate supports a growing number of Police Forces across the UK, and one of the biggest challenges they tell us they face is not being able to communicate effectively at pre-planned events such as a festival, major sporting event or a global summit, or when deployed at a spontaneous and complex incident.
As a result, we collaborate closely with our police customers to fully understand their operational requirements and to ensure they have the flexibility to deploy anywhere from a field where limited or no communications exists.
Our customers include The Home Office, Thames Valley Police, Gwent Police, Scottish Police, Northamptonshire Police and more.
Protecting personnel and the public at major events
From the G7 and NATO Summits and The Ryder Cup through to royal engagements and music festivals, Excelerate is supporting a growing number of forces across the UK to provide Real time bodyworn and UAV streaming solutions and connected vehicles such as operational support units and CCTV vans in addition to mobile deployable connectivity hubs. These range from portable WIFI hotspots, such as the Linx Hub, through to Private LTE hubs which do not rely on terrestrial infrastructure.
Why we are increasingly working collaboratively?
Our bespoke connectivity infrastructures are designed to keep the public and operational personal safe. We ensure our customers, which include Thames Valley Police, Gwent Police, and Police Scotland have the products and solutions to enable failsafe communication of data, Video and voice
Joint Operations to manage multiple complex incidents
Northamptonshire Joint Operations Team and command unit represents the endless opportunities presented by both greater interoperability between agencies and the intelligent use of digital communications. Since 2016, it has been deployed at multiple complex incidents, pre-planned and community events and major incidents.
The first of its type in the UK, the high-tech vehicle features satellite, 4G and private LTE communications, while the built-in technology includes the ability to receive and view footage from remote static cameras, body worn cameras, UAV’s and the police helicopter. The services are now rolling out a fully connected fleet to support various operational scenarios

Resilient Mobile Connectivity for Rural Policing
The impact of crime on victims and businesses in rural areas can be devastating. Whilst crime occurs less frequently, when criminals do target those living and working in these locations the impact on residents and businesses can be much greater. Some of the issues faced by rural communities include farm and agricultural crime, crimes against small rural businesses, wildlife and heritage crime and more.
A mobile police station with integrated communications technology can support officers with on-going engagement by giving them the freedom to access and share information even in remote locations where no terrestrial coverage exists or is very poor. This can help forces increase their visibility in rural communities and provide specialist expertise on how to be more vigilant, enhance security of buildings and land, report a crime and more.
Dyfed-Powys Police currently uses four state-of-the-art mobile police stations to enhance its rural policing strategies
