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

Mission Manager Strengthens Powerful First Responder Tool

July 17, 2014  | 

Mission Manager, Inc. has announced the re-launch of its cloud-based incident manager tool that has helped first responders save lives and property in over 4,400 missions, including the 2014 San Diego fires and Boston Marathon. Product upgrades include significant improvements in infrastructure, data security and technical support.

Mission Manager provides a turnkey solution for mission planning, preparation and real-time situational awareness during live missions. Featuring a robust database with automated reporting tools, multiple communication vehicles and extensive mapping overlays, Mission Manager is designed to essentially replace the manual process of managing callouts by pen and paper, and producing reports via spreadsheets. Mission Manager ensures teams are ready to deploy at a moment's notice.

Developed as a free solution by a San Diego first responder, Mission Manager has been adopted by more than 1,200 local, state, national and international agencies in all 50 U.S. states and in 20 countries over the past three years. Users include search-and-rescue organizations, fire departments, law enforcement agencies and emergency operation centers. Their missions range from single-person rescues to public events and large-scale natural disasters.

In an effort to meet growing customer requirements, Mission Manager was recently acquired by Poway, California's Ambient Alert, Inc. Renamed Mission Manager, Inc., the company has invested significant resources to improve functionality, data integrity and technical support.

Among the recent enhancements, Mission Manager was moved to new servers at Amazon Web Services, which deliver a scalable cloud computing platform with high availability and dependability in compliance with security best practices and IT standards. Other improvements include continuous database backups to enable point-in-time recovery of data. Mission Manager has also enlisted dedicated staff to provide technical support via the phone, face-to-face, email forums and training videos.

"We respect the critical and sensitive work of first responder organizations. That's why we invested in a more robust solution with solid security," said Mike Berthelot, Mission Manager President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our company's flexible pricing model also ensures that Mission Manager will be available to the broadest possible user group, so first responders can continue serving their communities with their critical missions."

Mission Manager's new pricing structure serves both smaller search-and rescue organizations and national organizations with very specific needs. Under the tiered pricing model, Mission Manager will be available for a full year for less than the cost of one month's cell phone service for each user. Mission Manager has also established First Responder Grants covering up to 50% of the annual license fee to qualifying non-profit, volunteer community-based search-and-rescue and CERT organizations.

"We believe first responders are investing in their future with Mission Manager," said Berthelot. "It provides them with a high degree of readiness so they can execute their missions more effectively and efficiently. We are pleased to be a partner in their critical work, and in turn, help save them lives and protect property."

Mission Manager is available for a 30-day free trial to new users via its website at http://www.MissionManager.com.
