Maker of the World's Toughest Cell Phones Announces Two Devices, Partners with 30+ Ecosystem Players to Bring Critical Communications Tools and Applications to Public Safety Ecosystem

ORLANDO, Fla. - Mar. 7, 2018 -Sonim Technologies, maker of the world’s toughest cell phones, has doubled down on its commitment to the public safety sector at this year’s International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE), the authoritative annual event March 7-8 in Orlando for communications technology professionals in the working world. Last week, Sonim announced two new devices—the XP8 and the XP5s—geared towards the public safety community and, today, announces its collaboration with more than 30 key ecosystem players to bring Sonim technology to life during IWCE.

“Our mission at Sonim is to create technology solutions that serve those who serve us, including public safety workers,” said Bob Plaschke, CEO, Sonim. “Our recent product announcements, coupled with our partner presence at IWCE, reaffirm our commitment to providing public safety workers with specialized tools and platforms to make their jobs more effective, efficient, and safe.”

Last week, Sonim announced two new ultra-rugged mobile devices—the XP8 and XP5s—to first responders on FirstNet, the country’s first and only communications platform dedicated to public safety. The XP8 and XP5s demonstrate Sonim’s expanding leadership in the ultra-rugged mobility category and its unwavering commitment to the public safety market, delivering industrial- and military-grade devices built to work in extreme conditions and environments, while integrating functionality critical for first responders. Both devices come with an industry-leading, comprehensive three-year warranty and include the SCOUT Enterprise Xperience, allowing businesses to manage and control communications more effectively. They also include Sonim’s SecureAudio Connector, allowing workers to securely attach mission-critical audio accessories that are powered by the handset.

The XP8 and XP5s also come with built-in Band 14 access. Band 14 is special spectrum licensed by the First Responder Network Authority that will be used to further build out FirstNet. This gives first responders access to even more coverage and capacity on the FirstNet platform. The XP8 and XP5s will be coming soon to FirstNet, while the XP5s is available now at Sprint.

In addition to its new devices, Sonim and its technology partners have worked together to develop evolved communications solutions for public safety. Sonim solutions can be found at the following booth locations at 2018 IWCE:
