Land Mobile Radio

The Lifeblood of Emergency Response

Legacy land mobile radio (LMR) systems that have reached end of life can no longer keep pace with today’s public safety requirements.

Mission-critical agencies need to exceed their current capabilities with a system that boosts coverage and capacity, while exceeding the needs of the user community and creating maximum value for their investment. All of this must be balanced with how the system will integrate with IP-based networks and commercial wireless technologies from public safety broadband providers.

Mission Critical Partners has decades of collective experience helping mission-critical agencies reduce the complexity of LMR replacements or upgrades, ensuring that they benefit from low-risk implementations and improved outcomes. We help ensure that systems are reliable, resilient, scalable and cost-effective by bringing a vendor-independent perspective to every project. We’re committed to helping our clients implement a forward-looking LMR system that is designed to accommodate their budget now and well into the future. We also help agencies control costs, strengthen service delivery and reduce risk associated with LMR system maintenance — saving time, energy, expense and frustration.

Our LMR expertise covers analog and digital voice and data systems — particularly Project 25 (P25) — that operates very-high frequency (VHF), ultra-high frequency (UHF), 700 megahertz (MHz) and 800 MHz bands. We are also experts in broadband data systems as well as backhaul systems — microwave and fiber-optic.

Power of Partnership

MCP has partnered with hundreds of agencies, large and small, to achieve their mission-critical communications goals. We help organizations:

  • Achieve their goals with greater certainty and control and less risk
  • Understand their unique system requirements and needs
  • Realize maximum value from radio investments, generating an average of 25 – 40 percent in cost savings to reinvest in other initiatives during implementation
  • Improve policies, systems and processes
  • Experience ongoing maintenance savings up to 20 percent annually
