Traditionally, most public-safety communications have been delivered via voice, but that is changing rapidly. Today, first responders increasingly get information about incidents via text, data, photo and video—and this is only expected to increase with the expected proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and cameras. But more data sources can simply mean more screens to monitor, unless the information can be integrated in a simple, effective manner. Learn how APIs, standards, gateways and other solutions can be used to disparate data sets augment each other to deliver better situational awareness to the response effort.
