That’s mission-critical communications devices and networks, AI-powered video security & access control and the ability to unite voice, video and data in a single command center view. We’re solving for safer by connecting public safety agencies and enterprises, enabling the collaboration that’s critical to connect those in need with those who can help. The work we do here matters.
