Kevin Pitts of Oracle Communications, Walt Jones of Modular Communications Systems (ModUcom), and Simon Farrow of Stancil Corporation demonstrate how a denial-of-service (DoS) attack can cripple a 911 network, and how an Oracle solution installed in a border-control element in a 911 network can allow a public-safety answering point (PSAP) to return to normal operations quickly after such an attack.
DENVER—TeleCommunication Systems (TCS) announces its Intrepid9-1-1 offering, a suite of next-generation 911 core services that represents the merger of company’s Gemini and microDATA xSR portfolios while providing the flexibility of hosted and on-premise deployment options.
DENVER—Public-safety answering points (PSAPs) using the VESTA 911 platform from Airbus DS Communications soon will be able to receive SMS emergency text messages via a new offering that is integrated into the 911 system, according to Airbus DS Communications CEO Bob Freinberg.
FirstNet representatives have been receptive to the notion that the much-anticipate public-safety broadband network needs to operate cohesively with IP-based next-generation 911 systems, and 911 officials should work to ensure this vision becomes reality, according to a National Emergency Number Association (NENA) official.
Knowing the requirements and how to begin the next-generation 911 migration process can be difficult. Although there are many various ways to get started, remember that each will introduce immediate benefits to your 911 emergency communications.
Join us on Wednesday, June 24, from 2 p.m . to 3 p.m. Eastern time, for our next eLearning session, which is entitled “Extending Your LMR Network with LTE and Wi-Fi.“ Industry expert Joe Blaschka Jr., principal of ADCOMM Engineering Company, will explain how to extend your LMR network with LTE and Wi-Fi to create a multi-network architecture that improves coverage today while setting the stage for FirstNet and other broadband offerings.
In 18 months, a new President and Congress will be in office. Now is the time to ask tough questions regarding FirstNet’s readiness to meet increased cybersecurity threats, as well as whether a federal approach to public-safety interoperability is the best path for the future.
There is no silver bullet to the complex problem of cyber attacks on the federal government, but identifying who is responsible and prodding them to act through legislation and oversight is a first step to stop the bleeding.
Heeseon Lim, Brocade’s director of systems architecture for mobile networking, explains how the company’s virtual core mobile (VCM) solution LTE network provider enjoy simpler operation, greater flexibility, improved reliability and better security than hardware-based evolved packet cores–all while lowering capital expenditures.
