Voice & Data Convergence using Multiple Communication Networks

The Future of Mission Critical Networks

Watch our free webinar for an informed discussion about voice & data interoperability between LTE & LMR networks.


What's Discussed

In this webinar the speakers present the future of mission critical networks: a combination of different networks for voice & data communications between users in the field and control center operators. 

They discuss the need for robust backend infrastructure and suitable communications equipment to support voice interoperability between multiple bearers such as LMR, satellite, WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, and the concept of smart bearer switching.

The presentation also addresses how the ability to automatically switch between multiple bearers using standard, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms provides enhanced communications in mission critical and non-mission critical environments. It enables field personnel to communicate over cellular or other available networks when there is no LMR or LTE coverage.

The speakers also highlight the need for a solution to solve the issues of data interoperability that various industries face, especially when implementing applications from multiple vendors that cannot be integrated. The presentation also runs through some of the latest cloud applications that can be provided as SaaS to industries such as public safety, mining, utilities, and transport, and explore the cloud VS edge computing question.

Finally, the speakers touch on the use of data integration platforms to solve critical issues industries such as public safety face; for example, when receiving location information of portable radios in the field and sharing it to external applications like CAD. 


Why Watch this Webinar?

The webinar focuses on voice and data interoperability between LTE and LMR networks in particular. Convergence of communications networks is crucial for industries that have invested millions of dollars in an LMR network and now need to expand their voice and data to LTE. Another key point that will be addressed are the benefits automatic network switching using standard and AI/ML algorithms bring to field operations using standard and AI/ML algorithms.
