More than ever, public safety depends on
interoperable communications.

Safety for all of us means working together. That’s Interoperability.

First responders must get through in an emergency—no matter what. So to stay ready for successful missions, it’s critical that first responder networks, platforms, apps, media and devices be reliable and secure. That means first responder communications must be open and interoperable, with firstpriority access across carrier networks and public safety agencies.

Verizon offers the highest-quality connectivity to first responders. By combining interoperable communications on our 4G LTE network with Mobile Broadband Priority, Preemption and more public safety solutions, you can count on our support when you need it most.

The critical need for interoperability in emergency response

Verizon interoperability makes effective communications and collaboration among public safety agencies possible.


Mutualink helps public safety agencies, schools, and commercial entities work together (Audio, Video, data), during an active incident.

Keep the lines of communication completely open in an emergency.

To enable secure communications and content sharing across public safety agencies, we offer Verizon Interoperability. With our Interoperability solution, first responders get any-to-any, end-to-end encrypted connectivity for communicating on any network and device during an emergency via radio, voice, video, data and text.

First responders can seamlessly interact through an easy-to-use interface with networks, services and compatible applications to communicate and coordinate across agencies, jurisdictions and departments.

Our Interoperability solution helps public safety personnel:

  • Streamline operations and security across carrier networks and public safety agencies
  • Keep communications siloed and private during normal operations while enabling collaboration in an emergency
  • Improve response times and interagency coordination with interoperable communications on platforms like Push to Talk Plus
  • Enhance first responder safety and situational awareness in near real time
  • Protect existing and future public safety communications technology investments with backward compatibility
