A study of public safety communications by a non-profit policy group has concluded that agencies should embrace new technology, and shed the restrictions imposed by antiquated equpment, dedicated and narrowband spectrum, and gear manufactured for a single purpose.

Rather, “The public safety community should migrate away from its traditional reliance on specialized equipment and embrace an integrated broadband infrastructure that will leverage technological innovations routinely being used in commercial sectors and the military.” Download (pdf) the group’s report here.
