As utilities transition totechnologies, their need for converged transport of multiple communication media is increasingly critical. For many operating on analog radio systems today, a smooth migration path to digital, voice/data-capable LMR technologies is key, but it raises many questions:
- What steps can you take to ensure that new equipment is interoperable with and seamlessly integrates into your mission critical operations today and your planned operations in the future?
- What strategies will let you choose the radios, telephony, networking equipment, etc., that make sense for your company going forward?
- How can you best protect your investment against obsolescence, while maintaining the flexibility and configurability necessary to accomodate new communication technologies in the future?
