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

VIDEO: ISIS Publishes 39-page List of Targets, Including NJ Transit Officers

The Islamic State released a list online, giving the names of its targets, including New Jersey law enforcement, reports FIOS News 1.

The 39-page list includes full names and details of police officers from all over the state. Many of them are New Jersey Transit officers.

The pages also include threatening statements in broken English, such as: "There is no system save; your protection fail; we are everywhere; Islamic State do not give up until we come to you and kill you."

NJ Transit says it is working with the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI to figure out how the officers' information was obtained.

This is no surprise. With the accomplished input of multiculturalism that has taken hold by Liberalism, the Islamist radicals now use our very laws against us in order to accomplish the take-over that France is experiencing with No Go zones and Shariah Law. Internal resistance from Liberals assists the Jihadi and they are fully aware. CAIR is a significant help right here in USA and the icing on the cake is Obama's naive approach to the problem. The internecine strife occurring now in the voting process is the precursor to future attacks yet to come as per the intent of ISIS.

DAN V @ 3/29/2016 6:36 PM

How about letting your citizens carry concealed without all the hassle? You know, there are plenty of people out there will to help when the SHTF.

F ISIS. Wish they wouldve been in Iraq when I was there.

Sheriffs Explorer Sgt. @ 3/29/2016 6:37 PM

Well Leonard, I hope you're wrong. I think however, that this is just a scare tactic. They want people to be alarmed and they're just trying to show us that they're in control. But you're a liberal too, so you're being hypocritical by downing your political party here. At least, stand up for what you truly believe, even though its wrong. You can't fix stupid.

Pvt. Deborah Siefer @ 3/29/2016 10:02 PM

The less information given the better you are also remove self from media sites. So informtion can't be leaked out anywhere. Or your affiliation to whatever your trying to not release to the public. I dont like the thought that ISIS has a list of names of officers. Sounds like an inside person. If they have this list how many others do they have?

kevCopAz @ 3/29/2016 11:08 PM

I agree with Deborah, I am notion Face book, etc etc, Im a ghost on those type of sights. Here in Az we (PD) are allowed to have DL information, voter information and many records sealed. ALL states should do this.

AZBIGDOG @ 3/30/2016 6:52 AM

Does anyone really believe that there are not officers, politicians and civilian employees who are actively assisting and helping the terrorists with intelligence and training? If so I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you cheap. Terrorist have infiltrated our justice system simply with the help of the liberals and politicians who believe that everyone is the same and that no one would want to harm the USA. The biggest problem is with bo and his cronies at cair.

AZ SO Explorer Sgt: You are fairly new to this site, so it appears you are not aware that the infamous troll "Leonard" is not the same person as Leonard Mather. Please don't confuse them, as you are insulting an ally here. Thanx.

Sheriffs Explorer Sgt. @ 3/30/2016 6:19 PM

Leonard Mather, I apologize for mistaking you with leonard the troll. I hope my statements did not offend you. tedb, thank you for telling me before I did it again.

Vigilante @ 3/31/2016 7:07 PM

If this happens I'll run these fucker over, spite how I been arrested many times, all lives matter except isis. Fuck isis.

This is now to close to ignor. And in my home state.

Sheriffs Explorer Sgt. @ 3/31/2016 7:17 PM

Vigilante, I totally agree with your sentiments, but please do try to keep the F word off here.

RG @ 4/1/2016 8:14 AM
