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.

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

WatchGuard Video Makes 2011 Dallas 100 List

January 13, 2012  | 

WatchGuard Video has been named number 80 on the 2011 Dallas 100 list, which is published by the SMU Cox Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship, according to the company.

The Dallas 100 Awards annually identifies fast growing, privately held companies that meet a number of criteria based on legal status, location, sales history, credit report, and character. This is the second consecutive year that WatchGuard Video was awarded inclusion on the list.

"It is thrilling for us to be honored two years in a row for our consistent growth, particularly during this period of budget cuts," according to Robert Vanman, president and CEO of WatchGuard Video. "With state and municipal budgets at crisis levels, most of our competitors have suffered significant declines in 2010 and 2011.  We were fortunate to have released a revolutionary new product last year, the WatchGuard 4RE HD Wireless In-Car Video system, which has fueled additional growth for our company even though many of our customer's budgets have been slashed."

The overwhelming success of the WatchGuard DV-1 DVD-based in-car video system and the new High Definition 4RE system with its sophisticated Evidence Library SQL Server backend software has established WatchGuard as the top manufacturer of in-car video for law enforcement. Approximately 1-in-4 in-car video systems sold in the US today is a WatchGuard Video system.

In 2010, WatchGuard relocated to a new facility in Allen, Texas to better accommodate its continued growth. WatchGuard's new 65,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility houses all departments including Engineering, Manufacturing, Sales, Administration and Customer Service. Included at the facility is a training center which is used for training agency administrators on WatchGuard products as well as for hosting various law enforcement events and training seminars.
