5G Public Safety Applications Discussion Panel Article
It is reasonably certain that the opportunities and challenges of the connection between IoT and 5G implementation within the public safety topic will be driven by the initiatives of connected “smart cities”. As more information is collected and shared within municipalities, situational awareness also increases, and public safety agencies will make more informed decisions in how they respond.
To gain a clearer picture of how 5G Network coverage will impact the public safety sector and expand the capabilities, we reached out to a panel of experts. Our 5G Public Safety panel includes Carlos Tobar, Manager of Emergency Systems, City of Edmonton Fire Rescue Services, Wayne Black, Chief Technical Officer at Freedom Products at Astronics Test Systems, and Tim O’Brien, Director of Strategic Development, Public Safety at Bird RF.
