LMR has been the go-to technology for almost a century for anyone needing a private communications system. However, cellular/LTE has become an alternative in some non-mission-critical situations. Examine the current and future state of the major LMR technologies, who uses them and why, and the pros and cons over current cellular options. Finally review what push-to-talk-over-cellular means to LMR and the future of communications.

What's Next for P25 and Public Safety Voice?

On Demand
Project 25 was created as a public-safety LMR standard that was designed to replace myriad proprietary protocols in an effort to promote interoperability and eventually reduce costs for infrastructure and equipment. Have these goals been achieved, or does work still need to be done in these areas? What is the future for P25 Phase II, CSSI and ISSI interfaces? How does P25 evolve in the future? How does the technology work the FirstNet public-safety LTE network and potential development of LTE mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) service?

Other Enterprise LMR Protocols: NXDN, DMR, TETRA

Wednesday, August 30 @ 2 pm ET
Beyond public safety, other LMR protocols such as NXDN, DMR and TETRA are in flux. Hear a great primer for the management of a CIO staff who may not be as well versed on narrowband and broadband as they are on IT technologies. Starting with the pros and cons of narrowband offerings, review NXDN, TETRA and DMR, and how they will adapt in this new IP-based world.

How do push-to-talk-over-cellular (PoC) services fit into LMR?

Wednesday, September 27 @ 2 pm ET
Push-to-talk-over-cellular (PoC) services have evolved significantly during the past decade, causing some government entities to use the technology as an LMR replacement under certain circumstances. However, PoC is more commonly used to expand an LMR system's coverage footprint or provide an alternative form of communication, particularly in non-mission-critical situations. What is the best way to integrate PoC and LMR communications? Will both technologies be needed long-term, or are there realistic replacement scenarios? Will LTE mission-critical-push-to-talk (MCPTT) develop quickly enough to impact today's LMR buying decisions?
