Originally aired: Thursday, December 6, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute on-demand webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Raleigh PD Expands Cloud-Based Access Control System

October 29, 2010  | 


Raleigh (N.C.) PD has expanded its access-control system to better manage those entering police facilities. Photo courtesy of Brivo Systems.

The Raleigh (N.C.) Police Department has expanded its cloud-server based access-control system it began implementing more than seven years ago.

The department is continuing to expand the system using Brivo Systems' ACS WebService at a growing number of police substations and other locations, according to Brivo.

"These days, more and more businesses are seeing the many advantages of managing their access control in the 'cloud,'" according to Steve Van Till, Brivo's president and CEO.

Prior to installing Brivo, the Raleigh PD utilized key pads at the entrances of some of its stations. Officers and staff gained access by entering a code, however, if a non-authorized person learned the code, building security was compromised.

Raleigh police wanted to more effectively control access at their buildings, but they wanted a system that provided both central and on-site administration. In addition to such tiered administration, the initial system design also called for a combination of both existing keypads and new card readers.

With the recent system expansion, a single Brivo system now manages access for more than 900 sworn and civilian members of the department as well as subcontractors and other personnel, covering approximately 60 access doors at 14 locations, including its new administration and North District buildings. System administrators have created approximately 15 different personnel groups to manage access at each location and to provide access across some or all locations for appropriate personnel.

The department has been steadily rolling out Brivo ACS for over seven years.

"The Raleigh Police Department doesn't have to invest in server capacity or software to get up and running at each new site — all of that is managed by Brivo," according to ASG Security's Gregory Curtis. "In addition, its daily transactions are kept off site in Brivo's geographically dispersed data centers, which provides the department with both redundancy and disaster recovery capabilities."
