And what are the responsibilities of building owners, carriers and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) who all play a role in ensuring indoor public-safety communications?

Our four industry experts from the recent APCO International 79th Annual Conference & Expo (APCO 2013) agreed to share with TIA NOW anchor Abe Nejad strategies for applying wireless technology to ensure in-building communications for the public and first responders.

Here’s what  Jonathan S. Adelstein, President & CEO of PCIA – The Wireless Infrastructure Association and former Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission had to say.



Tomorrow, hear from Robert LeGrande II, Founder, The Digital Decision, LLC and former Chief Technology Officer of the District of Columbia.
