Israeli Fire Brigade Deploys Private 5G Network for Secure Communications 

Athonet mobile core supports transportable communications “bubble” that federates with other fire agencies

The Customer

The customer is israeli system integrator Elbit Systems provides IT services for Israeli defense, fire, and homeland security organizations.

The Challenge

The fire brigade needed a 5G autonomous “bubble” of mobile coverage, hosted on the fire engine, that would operate anywhere the team traveled. In addition, the solution needed to federate easily with different bubbles hosted on vehicles from other fire brigades, interconnected through a backhaul system, to create a single federated communications layer.The goal was to provide a quick and secure communications network a fire brigade could rely on as it moved to different incident sites.


Our partner Elbit Systems – an international high technology company engaged in a wide range of defense, homeland security and commercial programs – supplies communications networks to the Israeli fire brigade. The fire brigades move from site to site as conditions demand, and they use mobile devices to communicate effectively with fire brigades from other jurisdictions as they team up to fight a fire. They selected an Athonet mobile core and related equipment integrated by Elbit Systems to provide a solution to meet their requirement.
