We have developed a high-speed internet lane for emergency situations to ensure the reliable and correct flow of information in high-stress situations.

During an emergency situation, first responders, county office, and rescue operators from multiple locations coordinate with each other to ensure a successful rescue operation. Sending these signals and information over the internet provides no guarantee on reliable, timely and secure delivery. The Emergency Internet Bypass Lane Protocol (EIBL) can be deployed in current internet infrastructure and invoked during emergency. The protocol will forward emergency traffic, bypassing all Internet traffic and security threats at Layer 3 and above in the protocol stack. This protocol allows for a seamless, uninterrupted, and reliable connection that is crucial in emergency situations.
