Mobile Command Centers: Transforming Your Police Vehicles

March 26, 2019
3:00pm - 4:00pm

Today, mission-critical connectivity is not just about getting MDTs hooked up to CAD systems. The connected vehicle is now the hub for law officers in the field to do their day-to-day tasks, protect citizens, and serve the community. Because of this, it is pushing more and more technology into the cruisers. In-vehicle wireless technology is becoming mainstream to effectively leverage modern public safety devices and applications, and to take advantage of broadband networks dedicated to public safety. To maintain interoperability between technologies, it is imperative to choose the correct solution that keeps agencies CJIS conformant and offers the critical connectivity needed to not only serve the community but save lives in incident response.

Join Michael Fletcher, business development manager and retired San Bernardino County Deputy Sheriff, and Estee Woods, director of public sector and public safety marketing, both of Cradlepoint, for this webinar for an overview of critical considerations for digital transformations happening in public safety, a solution comparison for in-vehicle and incident response networking solutions, and real-world uses cases.

This webinar will help law enforcement understand the opportunities that come with wireless connectivity so they can be better prepared when emergencies strike. Utilizing dated technology is like having a pager in a smartphone world — and when lives are on the line, agencies need to understand those implications.

What Attendees Will Learn:

  • How digital transformation, national public safety broadband networks, and 5G are driving mission-critical LTE connectivity.
  • How MiFi, single modem routers, and dual-modem routers solutions compare for law enforcement applications.
  • About the applications of network security and impact of cloud-managed networks.
  • Real-world uses cases.
  • How accessible in-vehicle wireless connectivity can be for agencies.
