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

Originally aired: Thursday, December 13, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

An exceeding number of police departments and law enforcement agencies, whose officers spend upwards of 3-4 hours a day completing incident reports and other time-sensitive paperwork*, are turning to smarter tools, such as speech recognition solutions, to help transform their police reporting workflows.

View this on-demand webinar to hear why these law enforcement professionals are embracing smarter tools to complete higher-quality reports and move mission-critical information within the CAD/RMS faster and more efficiently – all by voice.

This discussion will provide you with an understanding of:

  • What law enforcement has to say about current reporting processes
  • Why officers, especially recruits, want smarter tools to help with police paperwork
  • Why manual reporting has a negative impact on report accuracy and productivity and can hinder criminal proceedings
  • How departments can speed up data entry within the CAD/RMs and move mission-critical information more accurately and efficiently
  • How speech recognition technology can help increase officer safety and improve situational awareness and productivity on patrol
  • Why embracing smarter technology increases community visibility, and minimizes costs

Learn how your department can make incident reporting faster, safer and more complete by viewing our on-demand webinar today.

C4i Performs Military Grade Testing on Dispatch System

October 14, 2011  | 

C4i goes to great heights to test durability of its Radio Interface Unit (RIU), not only for military, but for an array of other fields as well-including public safety, government, transportation, and utilities, according to the company.

C4i demonstrated this extreme durability with the successful completion of Mil Std-810 Altitude qualification testing for its Radio Interface Unit (RIU). The assessment was conducted by an independent test facility in Virginia, and involved running the RIU at an extremely low temperature (-60° F) in a decompression chamber continuously for seven days.

Altitude testing is performed to determine whether the hardware can withstand and operate in a low-pressure, low temperature environment- a test that C4i's RIU passed with flying colors. The assessment mimics the effects of a high-altitude setting and simulates extreme cold weather, thereby proving the RIU's environmental survivability and its ability to function at great heights, even during potentially freezing temperatures.

In the public safety arena, this ability is vital in terms of high altitudes. For instance, C4i's RIU can be implemented as part of a radio gateway at an unmanned, remote radio site on a mountaintop, and operate without failing. The RIU connects to the radio system and converts voice signals from the radios into IP for transport across the network. C4i's ultra-rugged hardware ensures that the signal will get through regardless of the conditions.

"A high level of reliability is absolutely critical to public safety, military and government operations," said Brad Kay, president of C4i Inc. "They've all been tested, and exceed the very stringent military specifications, and those tests and rigorous development processes ensure reliability and performance."

C4i subjected its RIU to a series of "mil-standard" drop, shock, and vibration tests in order to further demonstrate the ruggedness of the equipment. These tests illustrate the RIU's ruggedness, and ensure its ability to function in unforeseen conditions, such as in a mobile or transportable operation, or in earthquake zones. Even when exposed to environmental hazards, the products will provide guaranteed performance.
