LMR Case Study: A Distributed Architecture System
This session will include a case study of a dynamic, distributed architecture, IP-based LMR, Phase 2 system. This will include the methodology of the procurement, engineering, and final implementation of a county-wide system. The session will be a panel discussion including a consultant, director, and system engineer. Topics covered will include best practices in building a country wide system infrastructure, design flexibility, multivendor integration, network resiliency and distributed IP architecture. Real-world examples of the topics will be provided during the session, which is part of this case study.
The three learning objectives of this session include:
1. What is a distributed architecture IP-based LMR system?
2. What is included in the deployment of a distributed system?
3. What are the lessons learned concerning the deployment of the system?
