Jupiter, FL – August 12, 2020 – Advanced Ground Information Systems (AGIS) has been selected to feature their LifeRing First Responder application on the Verizon Public Safety Portal.
Last year, Verizon introduced their public safety private core, which separates data traffic of public safety mobile users from commercial users across Verizon’s network. Public safety users will have their data immediately recognized as public safety with priority access at the tower and through the network. The private core leverages leading edge networking technology to provide security, flexibility, and reliability.
The Verizon Public Safety Portal is an extension to their public safety private core and features technology products and solutions to enhance the effectiveness of Responders and Responder Agencies.
LifeRing’s First Responder software is a single app that loads on any PC, Android, or iOS device as well as via any PC or smartphone browser. LifeRing enables real-time, situational awareness between all these devices to create a scalable Common Operational Picture system of the mapped area and the precise location of all Responders and the location of dangers in relation to those Responders.
LifeRing has interfaces to Police and Fire P25 Radios and can interoperate with other First Responder units using other cellular frequencies including Band 14. LifeRing can also digitally communicate with First Responders that are using Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) messages for data exchange.
LifeRing Server software enables the exchange of encrypted location information along with chat, PTT, voice, and video between each user while viewing each other’s location on a map or satellite image. To facilitate complete interoperation between the networked participants, LifeRing also provides the ability for users to: declare that they are in an Emergency, enter map symbols and attach files and photos to the symbols by touching their map symbol, enter drawings on their map for all to view, select map types, send commands and exchange email like message traffic.
“We are proud to be selected as one of Verizon’s trusted technology solutions” stated AGIS’ CEO, Cap Beyer. “We are dedicated to the First Responder community and I’m confident that our application will be a great Command and Control system for any size agency.”
