"In an emergency, you want to be sure your medical alert system can send and receive a clear signal," says Alan Wu, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bay Alarm Medical. "4G LTE is more reliable than traditional 3G cellular networks and provides extra coverage, giving you more confidence that your alert will be received."
Medical alert systems allow seniors to quickly get help in case of a fall or other medical emergency. With the push of a button, seniors can signal a call center that is monitored 24/7. Trained operators then notify first responders and help communicate the senior's condition and medical history.
Bay Alarm Medical is adding 4G LTE support to both its In-Home and GPS medical alert options. The company's in-home system has a cellular option for homes that do not have a landline telephone. Bay Alarm Medical's GPS system is designed to work both at home and away from home. It is also the only system of its type to offer caregiver tracking, allowing family members or other caregivers to check the senior's location at any time.
Wu says that GPS medical alerts can be especially effective over the AT&T 4G LTE network. "Our tests have shown that GPS tracking is much improved with the new network," says Wu.
Support for 4G LTE is important, given that cellular providers will begin retiring their 3G networks over the next two years. Verizon has already announced that its 3G network will be shut down by the end of 2019. Older 3G cellular equipment is not designed to work with 4G networks, so the retirement of 3G ends the equipment's useful life.
AT&T's 4G LTE network has rolled out nationwide and covers the majority of the United States.
