Interoperability– Does the Reality Match the Vision?

The APCO Project 25 digital radio standards suite and NENA’s i3 next-generation 911 architecture are designed in large measure to ensure interoperable communications between disparate systems and equipment. However, market forces often result in the reality regarding interoperability to be quite different than the original vision.

In this webinar, an expert panel explores the current state of interoperability. Key questions that will be addressed include:

  • What are end-users’ typical expectations regarding interoperability?
  • What are more realistic expectations, and how can they be achieved?
  • Is it possible that systems and equipment could have proprietary features and still be considered interoperable?
  • What is the current state of P25 and i3 interoperability testing?
  • What are the best practices for ensuring interoperability

Benefits of Multi-Vendor Networks

Explore the advantages of multi-vendor networks with this Webinar featuring an award-winning deployment in Richardson, Texas. We’ll also discuss the benefits to pulling off this initiative, which will be moderated by Urgent Communications Editor Donny Jackson.

Critical Considerations For Successful TDM to IP Migration

When it comes to the topic of TDM to IP migration, industry experts agree that it is a matter of when — and not if — utilities will make the move. The benefits of IP are well known, but at the same time, significant changes in technology can be scary. 

Learn about key considerations in planning or preparing for your own TDM to IP Migration.

Topics Include:
  • A comparison of TDM and IP.
  • Decentralizing for disaster preparedness.
  • Failover and redundancy.
  • Network-wide portability and login mobility.
  • Interoperability, integration, and flexibility.

Integrating Multiple Technologies into Public Safety Dispatching

Discover how Buncombe County, NC integrated multiple technologies into public safety dispatching in this informative webinar from Public Safety Communications magazine.

Hurricane Irene Disaster Recovery

Learn more about call center disaster recovery strategies from Vermont Emergency Management’s Chief of Field Operations Robert Schell. He coordinated the disaster recovery efforts during Hurricane Irene whose 80-mile-per hour winds and record flooding caused nearly $1 billion in damages, leaving thousands of Vermont residents without water or power. This session will cover different types of disaster threats and the advantages IP-based dispatching systems have in mitigating those situations. The guests will answer questions from participants about best practices in disaster recovery, lessons learned during Hurricane Irene, and why system redundancy matters for public safety answering points (PSAPs). This webinar originally aired on Oct. 20, 2011.

2014 Airline Industry Forecast

What will the year 2014 bring the commercial aviation industry? The experienced ATW and SpeedNews editorial team will discuss 2013 results and expectations for 2014 based on briefs from industry analysts, forecasters, manufacturers and organizations such as IATA. Presentations will also cover important topics traffic growth hotspots, aircraft orders and delivery rates, capacity management, the impact of the new merged American Airlines and US Airways, and regulatory and the environment expectations. Geographic regional outlooks will also be addressed.

Advantages of IP Dispatch and Recording (Powersouth)

Case Study on PowerSouth Energy located in Alabama and the advantages they experienced with IP Dispatch.

How to Migrate to IP Solutions

Almost all forms of communications are moving to an Internet Protocol (IP) platform, but that doesn’t mean that making the transition to IP is easy. This is especially true for critical-infrastructure entities that must ensure that the reliability of their legacy communications—much of which was based time-division-multiplexing (TDM) technology—is met or exceeded within by new IP systems. Our panelists will discuss key components of making this migration, addressing everything from the beneficial business case to the technical challenges that can be encountered along the way.

Collaboration of PSAPs without Consolidation

In this webcast, you’ll learn how to deploy an open-standard P25 digital radio solution and other common technologies to enable full-function exchange capability for dispatching.

Bonneville County, Idaho, leveraged a common P25 system over a shared IP network, deploying an open standard, P25 CSSI-compliant console system to deliver integrated resource access, and improve disaster planning and multi-agency interoperability across four counties.
