Almost all forms of communications are moving to an Internet Protocol (IP) platform, but that doesn’t mean that making the transition to IP is easy. This is especially true for critical-infrastructure entities that must ensure that the reliability of their legacy communications—much of which was based time-division-multiplexing (TDM) technology
There is considerable industy speculation about IP voice over broadband to smart devices, most of which is focused around the development of the FirstNet broadband network for first responders. What many don't realize is that technology available today connects smart mobile devices over coast-to-coast broadband networks to mission-critical LMR networks in almost every possible use-case scenario.
The APCO Project 25 digital radio standards suite and NENA's i3 next-generation 911 architecture are designed in large measure to ensure interoperable communications between disparate systems and equipment. However, market forces often result in the reality regarding interoperability to be quite different than the original vision.
In this webinar, an expert panel will explore the current state of interoperability. Key questions that will be addressed include:
