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 Introduces Third Party Radio Gateway

June 21, 2012  |

C4i has developed a new product enhancement and integration feature that supports third party interfaces to their SwitchplusIP radio/telephone system. This technology takes advantage of C4i's established end-to-end IP communications network by providing additional endpoint and gateway devices access to IP communications connections, according to the company.

One of the many benefits of this new SwitchplusIP technology is that users are not restricted to using only C4i's products. Now it allows connections to the Omnitronics IPR and Raytheon NXU-2A products on the SwitchplusIP network.

As part of C4i's ongoing technology development program, the SwitchplusIP system now enables the use of these devices to minimize the amount of equipment needed, and also ensures that audio quality is maintained. Existing customer owned gateways could continue to be used to maximize the technology investment. Reutilization means more cost effective consumption of scarce funding and extends equipment life, thereby reducing overall cost of ownership. Reliability and quality are greatly enhanced, as there is no longer a need to convert a digital signal to analog and back again to connect to the gateway.
 
"We have developed this enhancement to the SwitchplusIP system in order to ensure that our customers are able to take advantage of their previous investments in radio-over-IP technology, while also improving audio quality and reducing end-to-end latency," said Brad Kay, C4i's U.S. president. "Many agencies have already implemented simple ROIP connections as leased line replacements, however have not taken the next step and provided End-to-End IP connectivity all the way to the dispatch console."

C4i has always been known as the complete end-to-end IP solution. With this newly advanced open technology, C4i's upgraded network has been dubbed "E2IP" which stands for "Extra End-to-End IP." Implementing an IP based solution when updating radio systems can be cost prohibitive. Thus, the ability to add to existing ROIP infrastructure and connect to sites that have only one radio will leverage an agency’s technology investment.

Kay said, "Our latest software offering allows customers to achieve true End-to-End IP within their system and free up their existing near end gateways for use elsewhere in the network. The new release also supports a mix of unicast and multicast IP to optimize use across Wide Area Networks."
