Monitor, detect and manage public safety network and infrastructure incidents before they become catastrophic

In today’s public safety communications environment, agencies are implementing new technology at a breakneck pace—which all need oversight and management to ensure reliability and continuity of operations. IP-based networks exist in a constant state of change—requiring expansion, patching, hardware and system upgrades and more—on an ongoing basis. Because of this and the time and staff required for network administration, public safety leaders struggle with keeping their network operating at optimal levels of performance while simultaneously managing the spiraling costs of maintenance and support provided by vendors.
