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: FBI Paid More Than $1.3 Million to Crack Terrorist's iPhone

VIDEO: FBI Paid More Than $1.3 Million to Crack Terrorist's iPhone

The FBI paid at least $1.3 million dollars for the tool that allowed it to break into the iPhone 5 used by San Bernardino terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook, agency director James Comey said Thursday.

Asked how much it cost to buy the hacking tool, Comey told attendees at the Aspen Security Forum in London it was more than he will be paid in the remainder of his job, which is 7 years and 4 months. Comey makes an estimated $183,000 per year.

FBI had previously indicated that agency paid a substantial fee for the assistance, but had declined to provide a specific amount or estimate. The FBI has also refused to disclose the identity of the outside party that provided the assistance, USA Today reports.

Comey also has said that a debate continues within the government over whether to notify Apple of the method used to bypass the security function on the San Bernardino terrorist's iPhone.

The follow up to this story should read "Judge finds Apple execs in contempt - orders them to reimburse the FBI triple damages".

So here we are once again. I haven't seen it here yet, (give it time) the knuckleheads will be leaving comments like, "no wonder our country has so much debt". I agree with the first gentleman's comments that the execs should be charged with contempt and indicted for obstruction of justice.

But in this country we don't ever address the root of the issues. We pass the buck so eventually it falls back on the LE agency and gives the public something to bitch about. How about why was the price that high? Those $100 dollar hammers are still out there folks. Its even more prevalent now then it has ever been. Its the same reason insurance for ANYTHING is outrageous. This over charging shit has to stop! This greed has been destroying this country for the last 100 years.
