Product & Industry News
We maintain a constantly updated collection of
news items from both the communications industry and the public safety community relevant to interoperability. This also includes our opinions and commentary, and links to the original news items.
We also keep a collection of National Interop press releases for your reading pleasure.
We also host a continually updated
list of grant-making organizations that are potential sources of funding for interoperability.
Interoperable Media & Publication
We have found it useful for our own research into interoperability issues, both technical and procedural, to have handy a list of
Media and Publications Relevant to Interoperability. Publications on this list comment on communications interoperability from a variety of perspectives, including (but not limited to) dispatchers, administrators, first responders, technologists, policy-makers and various vendors. This information is organized by the perspective of the publication.
Other Web Site Links
We also maintain a list of Website links for associations and others that don't publish magazines, but influence interoperability, are standards-making bodies, or are otherwise relevant.
Government Interoperablity Efforts
We have also assembled a summary of the
Government Efforts For Interoperability at both the federal level, and increasingly important, the state level. As the interoperability efforts in each state ramp up, this becomes even more relevant than ever before for local and regional public safety agencies. Even if you consider yourself uptodate on your state's activities, you may want to take a look at neighboring states and/or states that are further in the process and have already learned a few hard lessons. This area is organized by state.
