How Emergency Management Connects With WAVE

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Lack of enough 800MHz radio equipment for first responders and poor coordination with VHF and UHF systems from various outside agencies, departments, and surrounding jurisdictions created a dangerously disconnected emergency response system. After the devastating fire in the summer of 2000, the Benton County Emergency Management team committed to find the most effective, scalable, and reliable communications interoperability solution - all on a public county budget. After thorough evaluation of every viable option, the Benton County Emergency Management Team selected WAVE because of its ability to connect any communications signal to the existing IP network and flawlessly manage communications over that network between an unlimited number of devices.
