APX and Nokia team up to improve public safety
Ottawa, Canada and Espoo, Finland – August 13, 2018
APX, the leader in smart mobile technology, and Nokia, today announced a teaming agreement to deliver smart mobile technology for first responders through the APX CityScape software suite and Nokia’s Advanced Command Center (ACC).
APX CityScape mobile software – the easiest, fastest, and most effective way to capture and share tactical pre-incident plans – will enhance Nokia’s ACC, the next generation control room solution which combines rich media emergency call taking, video orchestration and analytics, intelligent dispatching and smart city IoT integration.
Public safety agencies can now:
Utilize APX’s powerful cloud-based, highly secure pre-planning and inspection mobile software across multiple branches
Enhance situational awareness and improve decision-making by integrating multiple applications and data sources
Streamline operational processes and improve response time through automated workflows
Improve branch and station interopability and sharing of critical information in emergencies
With the launch of Next Generation 911 and deployment of mission critical broadband networks like FirstNet, public safety organizations today need better coordinated and integrated data solutions to ensure they have the right information at the right time.
APX CityScape adds meaningful data like building plans, hazards, occupancy, and other specifics to complement Nokia’s ACC video- and IoT-based insights, instantly delivered to first responders en route to emergencies through mission critical broadband networks. Public safety agencies benefit from improved decision making, efficient operations and greater safety for both citizens and first responders during emergencies.
“APX CityScape with Nokia’s ACC will forever change how public safety can leverage real-time, meaningful, instant urban data through fast wireless networks and smart mobile devices,” said Paul Martin, President and CEO of APX. “We are pleased to be aligned with Nokia’s Public Safety market vision.”
Nokia’s ACC is a key pillar of Nokia’s ViTrust critical communications portfolio, which helps public safety agencies maximize the possibilities of mission critical broadband.
“This collaboration proves our commitment to the global Public Safety market, providing seamless connectivity and real information that is much needed when seconds count,” added Asad Risvi, Nokia’s Head of Global Services business development.
