Real-time Monitoring for In-building Public Safety Wireless Networks

It is imperative for first responders to effectively maintain reliable, wide-area public safety radio communications during emergency situations. A distributed antenna system (DAS) for...

Public Safety – Or the Safety of the Public? What’s at Stake for CRE?

A one-minute improvement in 9-1-1 response time would save an estimated 10,000 lives per year. 833 people per month. 27 souls per day. Every...

Cyber Hygiene At Home

We are living during an unprecedented time of uncertainty where working from home is now becoming more than the norm. It is fast becoming a necessity. Therefore, similar to an onsite working environment, the work product we produce at home needs to remains secure and safe. Have you considered how secure your network at home is? Ensuring good cyber hygiene is even more critical when working from home. People who work from home can be more vulnerable because they do not have a dedicated IT team or maybe they are not tech-savvy enough to set up their home networks

The Enterprise View of Public Safety

The importance of having reliable public safety system has been stressed repeatedly within the connectivity and real estate industries. Typically, the importance comes under the pretense of, “In the event of (emergency), first responders need to be able to communicate with each other and locate people in the buildings.” The hypotheticals are a good step towards making CRE owners understand why they need a public safety system. However, TEC Systems Director of RF Engineering Tony Balletta drove the point home with a real life example during the “Enterprise View of Public Safety” panel during the Connected Real Estate Summit

CriticalPoint AMS’ Impact on Public Safety and CRE

Comba Telecom, Inc., a leading wireless and information communications systems provider, increased its footprint in the public safety communications sector when it released its CriticalPoint Antenna Monitoring System (AMS) last year. The CriticalPoint™ AMS monitors the health of the passive interior service antennas (part of every ERRCS in building coverage solution for first responder radios) to ensure that the buildings first responder radio communication system is functioning properly. ERRCS stands for Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System. The Milpitas, CA-based company specializes in commercial and public safety bi-directional amplifiers (BDAs) and distributed antenna systems (DAS), including the passive components such

Driving Innovation in Public Safety Communications

First responders standardized on two-way radios for communication in the 1930s. Over the years, Motorola has done a great job of developing and iterating land mobile radio (LMR) technology, developing new features and functions that contribute to the effectiveness and safe operation of communications systems. One significant challenge for public safety communication is indoor coverage, which is getting worse. LEED-certified buildings can attenuate (reduce) a radio signal by 30dB, rendering it useless and creating a dead zone where two-way radio signals can’t reach. (In a commercial cellular context, a dead zone is a location without cellular phone service.) In
