For decades, first responders have depended on land mobile radio (LMR) handsets when responding to calls, on-scene activities, and emergency situations. Smartphones have now become ever-present and are extending their capabilities in the field. The next generation of converged public safety broadband communications services is ready for the tech-savvy generation of public safety and law enforcement professionals.
FirstNet ready and 700 MHz, Band Class 14 LTE proven, WideBridge Cloud™ brings P25 interoperability between LMR and LTE to increase situational awareness and safety with mission critical, secure voice, video, text, and data broadband services. WideBridge Cloud is an interoperable system of interoperability systems that provides first responders rich multimedia information to enhance safety, improve communication and collaboration, and to help save lives. When seconds count, the importance of getting the right information to the right people at the right time is critical. That’s why WideBridge has been designed to deliver clear voice, sharp streaming video, and fast data to users, while requiring minimal training to make first responders into smart responders.
Designed and build to the 3GPP standards, WideBridge gives first responders the foundational technology needed for secured communications for the newest LTE networks available. WideBridge has passed rigorous testing based on requirements from the public safety practitioners, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and Public Safety Communications Research Lab. With FirstNet deployment beginning now, state and local agencies, as well as their federal counterparts can benefit from advanced public safety broadband services today and know their investment will continue to deliver value in to the future as technology evolves.
