Resilient alerting networks

The use of communication networks is constantly growing, expanding and changing at a rapid pace. Megatrends are:

  • Standardization and concentration of networks (e.g. all IP networks using one trunk infrastructure);
  • Exponential growth of bandwidth (e.g. watching videos, remote working)
  • Society becoming completely dependent on networks (e.g. vital infrastructures)

Find out why to Keep independent alternatives in place when reliability, availability (and latency) really matter.

Exploring the potential of the three radio technologies for alerting

Technologies for communication and alerting in public safety organisations are passing through a period of change. LTE has emerged as a new option alongside POCSAG and TETRA with their alerting and verbal communication capabilities. Each technology must, however, be critically assessed for its strengths and weaknesses as well as its cost-benefit ratio. This whitepaper has examined them from the perspective of alerting. Since alerting is a mission-critical application, it is worth considering the facts carefully before making any investment decisions.
