The Evolving Role of Public Safety Agencies

Emerging Demands in Public Safety Networks

With the rapid evolution of technology and the increasing reliance on digital communication, public safety agencies face new challenges. As they adapt to modern demands, agency networks are transitioning to IP/MPLS to support a diverse range of applications and services. With the roll-out of advanced technologies like 5G, these networks need to handle even greater bandwidth demands, ensuring higher capacity, speed, and reliability.

We know your struggle

Public Safety networks are going through massive transformations to support new applications and growth. You may be managing the transition from TDM to IP/MPLS. You may need to share a common infrastructure for inter- and intra-agency first responder traffic.

You may be experimenting with bandwidth-intensive applications such as drones and HD mobile video, requiring increased network capacity and ultra-reliable connectivity to deliver real-time information. Your network needs to scale as demands on performance and capacity increase.

What are your challenges?

  • Backhaul capacity
  • 5G support
  • Network modernization
  • Link reliability
  • Link monitoring
  • New and legacy applications support
  • Network security
  • Intra-agency connectivity
  • Capital equipment costs
  • Network management
  • Operating expenses
