This medium, essential for over a century, continues to be the lifeline for responders on the front lines. From ensuring the safety of field agents to facilitating real-time critical information flow and enhancing situational awareness, radio’s relevance is undiminished.

Christopher Carver, the Director of Marketing Development at Hexagon highlights radio’s foundational role in enabling efficient operations across public safety and security sectors.  He acknowledges radio’s pivotal function in safeguarding responders in the field, transmitting vital data from control rooms to field units, and providing critical situational awareness for operations like law enforcement pursuits. While underscoring radio’s enduring importance, Carver also highlights the pressing need for its modernization, pointing towards an evolving future where radio communication integrates advanced tools for enhanced resilience, reliability, and data utilization. This evolution promises not only to uphold the essence of radio in public safety but also to elevate the safety of field personnel and the effectiveness of community protection services.
