Pepro discusses the future of public safety communications with industry leaders

Dec 20, 2013 | Posted in -- The Pepro Blog

Pepro recently attended the three day PSCR (Public Safety Communications Research) workshop at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Boulder, Colodaro. Representatives from public safety, industry, government, and academia gathered there to help shape the PSCR’s public safety broadband agenda by identifying productive areas for research to improve communications in the next five to ten year, understand which areas aren't addressed by current research projects, and prepare future investments in staff and equipment.

The workshop consisted of three discipline-specific scenarios in which participants identified technologies that would help fire departments, EMS and law enforcement perform their job more efficiently. Participants then prioritized those technologies according to criteria such as feasibility, estimated cost and impact across several disciplines. This list of prioritized technologies will be used as a guide to target short and long term research that will directly impact the safety of citizens across the country.

Pepro's opinions were sought because of our experience working directly with customers, our manufacturing expertise and long standing commitment to the public safety communications market, and with 150 attendees representing a wide range of industries and public safety job functions, the conference resulted in a productive conversation that will generate improvements in public safety as soon as this year.
