There is no single technology that provides reliable communication across different terrains and varying demand, which is why Unified Critical Communications combines the strengths of multiple bearers to mitigate their individual weaknesses. In this fourth lesson of the What is Unified Critical Communications course, we consider some of the pros and cons of multiple bearers and devices.
Increasingly, public buildings, institutions, industrial plants and commercial complexes demand critical communications that keep their workers, infrastructure and operations, and the public safe.
