With the rugged XL FAMILY of LTE-ready
portables, you’re no longer limited by the
boundaries of traditional radios. Whether your
mission takes you across state borders, into
extreme environments or behind the lines of a
natural disaster, the XL-185P and XL-200P give
you the power to stay connected. LTE and Wi-Fi
capable, you have loud, clear audio and critical
data wherever you are needed most.
FOR FIRST RESPONDERS, THAT’S HUGE.
THE XL FAMILY WITH LTE
When considering such devices, you need to think about how
user equipment will support a variety of services as users
move through different network coverage areas. Even in urban
areas with many broadband service providers, agencies should
consider how these devices will support communications when
catastrophic events result in a simultaneous surge in usage,
and a reduction in capacity due to network outages. Multimode
devices which fall back to secondary networks – LMR or LTE
or enterprise WiFi – will be ideal.
HOW TO GET FROM HERE TO THERE
The buildout of FirstNet, the nation-wide LTE network built
by AT&T is under way, and other carriers have stepped up with
plans to provide nation-wide service built for mission critical
end users. This multi-year process is just beginning, as LTE
networks will need to be proven ready for the demands of the
first responder community.
For the time being, communications network planners will
continue to rely on and incorporate devices, applications and
services that allow for converged communications across a
variety of networks – including LMR and LTE/WiFi broadband.
The steady pace of adoption of new converged products will
continue, but until nationwide LTE networks are fully proven to
provide public safety-grade reliability, first responders will seek
solutions that include LMR/LTE converged devices that deliver
the best of both worlds.
