First Responders

Trends in Connected Technologies for First Responders

Digital and connected technologies are transforming first responder organizations by increasing accountability, improving first responder safety, and enhancing triage and treatment. However, these new technologies can create new challenges if they are not implemented correctly, which can consume already limited budgets and precious man-hours.

The modern first responder relies on always-on mobile networks to keep their mission-critical applications and devices up and running. These teams need technology to just work—anytime, anywhere—so they can focus on doing their jobs and trust that the technology will function.

This white paper examines the role connected technologies, including mobile applications, devices, the cloud, and the Internet of Things (IoT), play in the effectiveness and safety of first responders and offer considerations for evaluating mobile network solutions that enable it all to work securely and reliably.
