How would we structure emergency coordination, situational awareness and public announcements if we could work across networks and devices? Interoperability is more than just hooking up network infrastructure. It's about enabling people across agencies and organizations to reach the right person and communicate when they need to, how they need to.
But effective interoperability won't be possible until all carriers, device manufacturers, platforms and solution providers commit to enabling it. In this webinar, our experts discuss where we are in that decades-long quest. Join us to learn what it will take to get there.
We'll talk about:
- Barriers to interoperability
- Data-sharing solutions in the post-pandemic world
- Verizon Interoperability Coalition: Uniform standards
- Advanced device-to-device technologies that can help enable interoperability across all networks
