WEBINAR: Seeking Convergence: Delivering the Greatest Capabilities and Connectivity to Our First Responders

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 | 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT

In this webinar, public safety experts will discuss the concept of a converged communications environment for first responders made up of LTE and LMR technologies, and the road ahead.

With LTE, first responders have new access to mission-critical information through data, video and voice applications, and rugged, public-safety-grade devices. But today, hardened and established LMR systems are delivering the coverage and reliability that first responders need.

Convergence of LTE and LMR allows public safety entities to leverage existing investments as well as capabilities enabled by Band 14 public safety LTE in an integrated network offering. 

Join our panelists - Patrick M. Flynn, Director of Communications and Outreach, DHS Joint Wireless Program Office, Felix Perez, Director of Radio Communications Information Division, Technology Department, Miami-Dade County, Joe Ross, Partner, Televate LLC and Andrew Thiessen, Standard and Requirements Lead, Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR), US Department of Commerce - as they explore:

  • Rationale behind convergence and the enablers of convergence
  • What convergence means at device, application and network levels
  • How to enable mission-critical grade communications through convergence
  • What is possible with convergence, and which intersecting areas of broadband and narrowband have the greatest potential
