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

Iowa Sheriff Criticizes Public Safety Broadband Rollout

October 16, 2013  | 

The U.S. Department of Justice has sued to halt the public release of the emails of Story County (Iowa) Sheriff Paul Fitzgerald, after the FirstNet board member criticized his colleagues over the deployment of the nation's first public safety broadband wireless network.

Sheriff Fitzgerald, one of 15 FirstNet board members overseeing the rollout of the network, has said his board colleagues are too beholden to wireless carriers and haven't been following open meeting rules or project guidelines, reports the Des Moines Register.

"In my view, the process thus far employed by FirstNet is killing our credibility," he said at an April board meeting.

The Justice Department is not seeking to quash the release of more than 7,100 of the sheriff's emails to fellow board members and other stakeholders.

Sheriff Fitzgerald is a highly professional public servant and highly skilled in broadband wireless networks. If he questions the ethical conduct of the FirstNet Board the country should be listening. There are $millions in tax payer dollars on the line and having an ethical Sheriff of the board assures public confidence.

The Sheriff's ethics are refreshing. DoJ getting in the way is disappointing. Im incredibly surprised that Eric Holder has been able to keep his job.

Jack Betz @ 10/17/2013 4:07 PM

Paul Fitzgeraldis a good cop and unlike Eric holder an honest man. If he says something is wrong, it needs to be fixed forthwith.

R G Montgomery @ 10/21/2013 7:33 AM

Interesting the U. S. Department of Justice (Eric Holder) doesn't want information released regarding "...colleagues ... beholden to wireless carriers and [not] following open meeting rules or project guidelines."

Why would Eric Holder and the U. S. Department of Justice want to conceal information regarding what sounds like 'special deals' in a tax payer funded project?

Does the word "Solyndra" ring a bell?
