Safety for first responders
means working together.
That’s real interoperability.
First responders must communicate with each other in an emergency—no matter what. So to stay ready for successful missions, it’s critical that first responder networks, platforms, apps, media and devices are reliable, secure and interoperable. That means first responders should have the best quality of service (QoS) and the ability to communicate between multiple agencies and departments, regardless of what network they use. Because real interoperability helps enable seamless collaboration.
Verizon Frontline, the advanced network and technology for first responders, provides high-quality connectivity. In fact, Verizon was ranked #1 in the U.S. by RootMetrics in overall network performance 15 times in a row.* When you combine interoperable communications with Mobile Broadband Priority, Preemption and more, you will be able to count on an improved experience where and when you need it most.

Mutualink helps public safety agencies, schools and commercial entities work together in near real time by connecting voice, video and information during an active incident.
Keep the lines of communication completely open in an emergency.
To enable secure communications and content sharing across public safety agencies, Verizon does more than just support interoperability—our network is built for real interoperability. Advances in technologies like our 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards-based mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) app, Push to Talk Responder, make voice, video sharing, geospatial information and data sharing work effectively, while providing first responders with any-to-any, end-to-end encrypted connectivity for communicating on any network and any device during an emergency.
First responders will be able to seamlessly interact through an easy-to-use interface with networks, services and compatible applications to communicate and coordinate across agencies, jurisdictions, devices and networks when they need to.
