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

TASER Introduces Next Generation Axon Body 2 Camera with Unlimited HD

October 23, 2015  | 

TASER International, Inc., maker of body-worn cameras and evidence management technology, today announced its new Axon Body 2 camera for $399 with unlimited HD storage included in the unlimited pricing tier for $79 per month. Agencies can now capture HD video evidence without worrying about the cost. TASER anticipates availability for shipment and trials in quarter four of 2015.

“The big challenge with HD video has been the significant increase in cost of storage -- typically 5x the cost of standard definition,” said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER. “Because of the scale of our platform and our ability to drive down costs, we are now able to make unlimited HD video plans available to our customers at the same cost as standard definition, something unprecedented in our industry.”
