Integrate Wireless Broadband Technology into Public Safety Operations
Mission-critical wireless broadband is dramatically changing the way public safety personnel communicate, offering the potential to significantly improve response outcomes. Many public safety agencies are challenged with understanding how these systems integrate and converge with traditional land mobile radio (LMR) systems and public safety operations.
Mission Critical Partners helps emergency response organizations shape their wireless broadband strategies. Whether an agency is looking to accelerate the transition to IP-based communication networks or implement a new broadband data system, success is based on whether the solution will enhance public safety’s capabilities now and into the future.
We’re the one partner that can help put it all together so that you can confidently implement wireless and broadband technologies. MCP’s portfolio of services features a full spectrum of wireless and broadband expertise, including bi-directional amplifiers (BDAs), distributed antenna systems (DAS), Wi-Fi, Long-Term Evolution (LTE), broadband data systems, Global Positioning System (GPS)-based applications and the nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN) being implemented by the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet).
Integrate Wireless Broadband into Operations
MCP works hand-in-hand to act as the critical interface between technology partners and public safety agencies as they look to integrate wireless broadband into their operations. We help organizations:
- Build requirements to integrate wireless and broadband solutions
- Educate stakeholders on how emergency response operations can be enhanced by wireless and broadband solutions
- Acquire technology that will cost-effectively deliver maximum benefit
- Integrate IP-based data networks with 911 operations and other LMR and IP networks
- Understand coverage, capacity and interoperability gaps
- Understand the future communications environment involving LMR and broadband, and the resulting cost implications

What’s the Future of Land Mobile Radio in a FirstNet World?
Public safety officials are wondering if they should replace their land mobile radio systems now that FirstNet has become a reality. This whitepaper makes the case for why agencies shouldn’t abandon their plans to replace their LMR system.
Public Safety Should Look Hard at Mission-Critical Push-to-Talk
This whitepaper examines push-to-talk over cellular (PTTOC) and mission-critical push-to-talk technologies, explaining why they might be a better choice than LMR in some cases.
911 Operations: How Next Generation 911 and FirstNet Will Impact PSAPs
The NPSBN and NG911 will generate new forms of data communications that will enable telecommunicators to make better-informed decisions when dispatching emergency responders. This whitepaper discusses the profound operational changes that 911 centers will need to make to take advantage of the new capabilities.
Virtual Webinar: FirstNet and NG911 Convergence: The New Public Safety Communications Platform
In this session, we will discuss the major issues involved with the transition to this new platform for public safety and provide a glimpse into what the emergency communications ecosystem could look like in the next 10-20 years.
Virtual Webinar: Making the Case for 5G in Public Safety Communications
During this webinar, MCP subject-matter experts will discuss how 5G can help improve emergency response and what it means to communities and public safety organizations alike.
Virtual Webinar: FirstNet Preparation Strategies
Listen for insights and guidance, regardless of status for FirstNet. This is a can’t-miss session that will help build an organization’s FirstNet strategy.
