Cloud and Fog on Mission-Critical Communications Series
Cloud-based solutions are commonplace for most enterprises, which are attracted to the Cloud’s resiliency, heightened functionality and lower upfront costs when compared to premise-based internal hosting of information. Public safety and other critical-infrastructure entities traditionally have been hesitant to depend on the Cloud, because they need solutions to work at all times, even when connectivity is lost. Examine how more reliable connectivity and technologies like edge computing are making some mission-critical entities reconsider leveraging the Cloud.
June 20 * 2 pm ET
Webinar 1: 911 in the Cloud
Cloud-based services are gaining momentum in the 911 space, particularly as public-safety answering points (PSAPs) begin transforming their operations to an IP-based, next-generation 911 platform that is designed to handle multimedia information, not just voice calls. By leveraging cloud-based solutions, PSAPs are learning that they can access more data sources to provide better situational awareness to first responders and benefit from greater cybersecurity resources than they typically have on premise.
September 19 * 2 pm ET
Webinar 2: Cloud-Based Applications in the Field
With reliable broadband connectivity, personnel in the field can access cloud-based applications that can help improve decision-making at the scene and even improve capabilities in the field. This webinar will examine advances in CAD, IoT/IoLST, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, data analytics, location data and how it can be used in the field to greatest effect to be actionable and operational.
November 7 * 2 pm ET
Webinar 3: Cloud, Fog, Mist, and Edge Computing – What’s the Difference and Why Does it Matter When I Pick a Provider?
Leveraging cloud computing can be a cost-effective way to increase productivity, access additional computational resources and increase enterprise flexibility in a disaster-recovery scenario. However, mission-critical and business-critical entities have long worried about security and their ability to function on cloud-based systems when their connectivity to a centralized cloud may be lost. This webinar will examine security considerations and approaches that effectively bring at least a portion of cloud intelligence closer to the end user—flavors include fog, mist and edge computing—to boost performance and potentially improve system resilience when cloud connectivity is down. Learn about the right questions to ask when making decisions about what is best for your enterprise.
