How the U.S. Border Patrol Employs WAVE Unified Communications Software to Deny Access to Illegal Immigrants, Drug Traffickers and Terrorists

The U.S.-Mexico border is the most frequently crossed - both legally and illegally - international border in the world. Unfortunately, Border Patrol communications systems generally fell short of capabilities deemed vital. They lacked any inherent interoperability and portions of the existing hardware had become obsolete, making repairs difficult and expansion impossible. Alongside a process of upgrading field radios, Tucson Sector was pursuing a new IP telephony system. In light of the restrictive circumstances and the crucial need for interagency communications in securing America's borders, Nortel Government Solutions, a Certified WAVE Integrator, presented a WAVE-based system as the only solution that could deliver.
