FRC Holds Interoperability Discussion (12/6)
Wednesday, December 06, 2006 | Comments
it is still a great climb to find comprehensive interoperability solutions, recent developments, such as the digital TV transition and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Michael Chertoff's call for interoperability in major cities and statewide by 2008, were important first steps. "I think that the prospects are probably good for passing comprehensive national interoperability legislation," said Christine Kurth, deputy staff director of the Senate Commerce Committee. "2007 is also an exciting year for standards, with commercial services as a driver, as technology is finding its way into the public-safety sector," said Tom Tolman, an editorial advisor to MissionCritical Communications and program manager at the National Law Enforcement & Corrections Technology Center in Denver. Tolman's group will release an updated study in fall 2007 to provide an accurate snapshot of interoperability efforts. Robert Crouch, assistant to the governor for commonwealth preparedness (Virginia), noted that in previous years, DHS grant guidelines did not account for multistate applications, but that the problem had been remedied for 2007.
