The Cisco Open Platform for Safety and Security is an architecture framework for building solutions to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from incidents. The framework comprises six building blocks: Command and Control, Mission-Critical Network, Incident Collaboration, Sensing and Actuation, Mobile Force, and Citizen-Authority Interaction. This white paper, intended for organizations planning investments in safety and security technologies and for solutions providers, focuses on the Mobile Force architecture building block. It enables public safety organizations to: Connect emergency responders to the information, applications, and human resources mission and provide efficient dispatch, problem resolution, and emergency communications.
