Advanced Solutions for Safer, More Efficient Operations
While the story described here is fictional, the threat and the solutions are real, and in use around the country. When traditional forms of communications (land lines, commercial cell networks, etc.) go down, LMR solutions can stay operational for transit agencies to remain operational during the worst of conditions. Situational awareness solutions provide transit management, incident commanders, transit operators with accurate locations of their service vehicles and local conditions. These solutions enable users to respond to incidents and issues more efficiently and effectively than previous technologies, and they are supported by the strength of integrated transit wireless voice, video and data radio systems, which provide critical communications to hundreds of agencies around the world.
