General Dynamics to Introduce LTE Comms System at Public Safety Industry Event

General Dynamics will unveil a new 4G LTE communications platform at a two-day industry event that is scheduled to kick off Monday.

The company said Friday it will showcase during the 2018 APCO International Annual Conference and Expo the FirstRunner system designed to help public safety organizations  communicate and access critical data while they perform missions in the field.

FirstRunner works to support internet connectivity, Ka-band satellite auto-deployment, enterprise-class gigabit wired networking, primary secure pop-up network and mobility for first responders.
