“The XP10 is the culmination of thousands of data points we’ve collected from public safety users over the past few years,” said Chip Frederking, vice president and general manager, AT&T/FirstNet, Sonim. “With a simplified look and feel, more ergonomic tactile physical buttons (including one for PTT and one for emergency use) and efficiency improvements, the XP10 was designed from the ground up for first responders. And all the while, we’ve always ensured it stays true to our ultra-rugged performance standards, allowing the XP10 to withstand daily punishment while keeping public safety and enterprise workers connected, which is a requirement, not an option, for those working in extreme conditions.

As a pioneer in manufacturing ultra-rugged mobile devices and developing mission-critical communications solutions, Sonim was the first to provide FirstNet Ready® ultra-rugged devices to public safety when the AT&T FirstNet network was launched in 2018. That legacy continues with the XP10.

Like all Sonim devices, the XP10 is designed to meet ultra-rugged standardsincluding MIL-STD-810H and Class I, II, and III Div 2 non-incendive ratings. It has been tested and can survive drops from six feet directly onto concrete, being submerged in six feet of water for 60 minutes, operate in all weather conditions from -4°F to 131°F, and much more. After. Sonim’s comprehensive 3-year warranty covers more than traditional mobile warranties and lowers the total cost of ownership.

The XP10 isn’t your typical rugged phone. While still ultra-rugged, it features a lighter, sleeker design to fit comfortably in a pocket. The 5000 mAh battery can sustain several shifts without charging, even longer for some workers. The battery is also removable and can be swapped out to reduce downtime on the job. Sonim is a leader in audio quality and continues to improve the audio experience with the XP10. Even in the noisiest work environments, workers can hear and be heard louder and clearer than ever thanks to 100dB+ speakers with Goodix echo and noise cancellation technology.

First responders also have access to a one-of-a-kind 5G experience on FirstNet. They enjoy the benefits of this next-generation connectivity while continuing to use LTE, the current benchmark for reliable mobile broadband, for their critical needs. First responders maintain voice communications with always-on priority and preemption over LTE, while the FirstNet network determines the best route for data traffic, whether it’s 5G or LTE spectrum. And AT&T will continue to roll out 5G connectivity for FirstNet in communities across the country.

“FirstNet Ready® devices and modules undergo extensive review, so first responders can be confident that Sonim’s XP10 meets our highest standards for reliability, safety and performance,” said Matt Walsh, assistant vice president, product management and development, FirstNet program at AT&T. . “The more tools that public safety has access to on their network, the better we can help them accomplish their mission.

Additional XP10 performance features include:

  • Sonim’s FirstCare provides FirstNet customers with 24/7 support and SonimCare provides 24/5 support for Enterprise customers

  • SonimWare enterprise mobility software to help customers deploy mobile devices faster as well as manage and support users in the field to increase productivity and improve security.

  • Enhanced photography experience with dual 50MP standard and 8MP wide-angle rear cameras as well as an 8MP front camera.

  • Android OS 12 delivers a smoother, more intuitive and responsive experience for increased performance.

This helps ensure that they can meet the needs of first responders. FirstNet Ready® devices are listed on the FirstNet device page.
