Tailor-made device software for first responders on the move
Many public safety agencies are looking to adopt mission-critical broadband based on LTE networks. Among the changes this brings is the opportunity for first responders to use smart devices, giving them the power of evolved communications on the move. Smart devices are poised to become the new age Swiss knife for first responders.
