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

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure has launched Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) 9.4, the latest version of its suite of incident management software. I/CAD 9.4 was unveiled at HxGN LIVE, Hexagon's international conference.

I/CAD 9.4 delivers new and enhanced capabilities that will help public safety agencies deliver even faster response and more efficient use of resources. I/CAD 9.4 offers new functionality to support large event and incident command workflows, increase efficiency for mobile and web applications, and enhance call-handling, including text messages. In addition to significant enhancements to existing I/CAD products, version 9.4 also provides a gateway to innovation, supporting a series of new products for dispatch, mobility, reporting, and analytics that will launch throughout the coming year.

"The combination of new and enhanced products offers productivity gains in dispatch and field mobility, with streamlined workflows and improved user interaction," said Peter Crosbie, product manager, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. "They also provide a host of new capabilities, from incident command workflows and text-to-911, to a new generation of responsive analytical dashboard and reporting capabilities."

New capabilities in I/CAD 9.4 include functionality to support large event and incident command workflows, such as staging areas, critical remarks, and event chronology. Usability improvements to web and mobile dispatch applications, including filtered displays and dynamic map content, will boost efficiency. The software also enhances call-handling through a new application for text messages to the public safety answering point (PSAP) and other functionality.

New products, compatible with I/CAD 9.4, to launch in coming months, include:

  • A web-based dispatching application, offering lower total cost of ownership and a modernized user experience
  • A powerful, yet simple to use and low-cost reporting and dashboard application to quickly generate reports, dashboards, and data visualizations of I/CAD and Intergraph inPURSUIT WebRMS records, as well as external or third-party data.
  • A flexible and easy-to-use, self-serve, web-based analysis application to interactively search, discover, and explore large amounts of structured and unstructured data across multiple themes, including crimes, incidents and offenders.
  • An integration hub for a public safety mobility ecosystem that will support the delivery of workflow-based mobile apps across dispatch, records management, physical security and analytics solutions.
