In an increasingly connected world, can critical industries stay on the public internet with the increasing risks? How can we ensure our data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands? Cyber security has always been a hot topic, but recent high-profile hacks and ransomware attacks have reaffirmed the importance of protecting critical infrastructure with robust information security technologies.
Originally designed to connect office computers into local area networks (or LANs), WiFi has become the go-to technology for short to medium-range wireless data communication and connection to the Internet. A WiFi network is inexpensive, easy to install, expandable, offers low latency (better than LMR), and excellent data rates. At first glance, they look ideal – but do WiFi networks really have what it takes to serve the needs of critical industries? In this lesson of the Tait Radio Academy, we discuss the pros and cons of WiFi.
Campus security personnel face challenging scenarios every single day. Events can happen quickly, and staff need to have technology close at hand that they can trust and rely upon. Communication is essential. The faster people can communicate, the quicker a situation can be de-escalated and resolved, keeping everyone on campus safe and secure.
For decades, land mobile radio (aka two-way radio) has been the mainstay of mobile critical communications. Used by millions worldwide in countless different conditions, constantly tested and refined, it has been the yardstick of success for critical communications, particularly in Public Safety. However, with broadband technologies such as WiFi, cellular and others becoming more and more prevalent, does LMR still hold its ground? In this lesson of the Tait Radio Academy, we take a closer look at the pros and cons of LMR.
Advancing technologies are constantly enabling new ways to improve safety and efficiency for critical industries.
