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

APCO Honors Officials for Public Safety Broadband Network

April 27, 2012  | 

The recipients of the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International's 2012 Public Safety Leadership in Policy Awards will be honored at APCO's annual Leadership in Policy awards dinner in Washington, D.C., on May 15.

The awards dinner commemorates leaders in public safety communications who are outstanding advocates for the industry and advance public safety policy. APCO has added a special category in 2012.

To mark the achievements of the Public Safety Alliance (PSA), APCO will recognize the leadership from each of the PSA partner organizations who helped secure legislation that changed the landscape of public safety communications. The PSA successfully advocated for legislation that allocated the D Block spectrum for public safety and $7 billion in funding. It also created FirstNet, an independent agency within the National Telecommunications and Information Administration that will ensure the development of a nationwide public safety broadband network. 

The tireless efforts of stakeholders from the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, the National Sheriffs' Association, the Major Cities Chiefs Association, the Major County Sheriffs' Association, the Metropolitan Fire Chiefs Association, the National Emergency Management Association and the National Association of EMS Officials resulted in the victory for public safety. APCO is recognizing members from each organization who made the D-Block campaign a success.

Here are the award winners:

Leadership in Advocacy Award: Richard Mirgon, past president, APCO International

Leadership in Regulatory Service Award: Jeffery Goldthorp, associate bureau chief, Federal Communications Commission

Leadership in Legislative Service Award: U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) and U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.)

Leadership in Advancing Communications Policy Award: Anna Gomez, deputy assistant secretary for communications and information and deputy administrator, National Telecommunications and Information Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce
