Verizon Partners with Mutualink for Interoperable Public-Safety Communications
Tuesday, October 09, 2018 | Comments

Verizon teamed with Mutualink to provide interoperable critical communications solutions that will allow first responders and related entities to securely connect their organization’s networks to communicate and share real-time video and critical information.

Mutualink is compatible with most devices and networks, based on a software-centric model that removes hardware dependencies, allowing connections between smartphones, video cameras and LMR.

“In times of emergency and crisis, it is important for everyone — first responders from different agencies, schools, hospitals and others — to have real time, on demand cross-agency communications,” said Mike Maiorana, senior vice president, public sector, Verizon. “Mutualink allows Verizon to provide that level of communication to our customers. Working with Mutualink further illustrates Verizon’s commitment to interoperability.”

“We live in a complex and interdependent society where the ability for agencies to communicate and collaborate on demand in a crisis, whether large or small, is critical,” said Mark Hatten, Mutualink’s CEO/chairman. “This agreement demonstrates Verizon’s commitment to helping deliver what first responders have been asking for — true interoperability for almost any device on any network.”

Verizon offers first responders access to its public-safety private core, a software-defined network that intelligently manages traffic between commercial and public-safety customers. Verizon also offers priority and pre-emption services and enhanced service management and control on its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.
