SAN MATEO, Calif., March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sonim Technologies, the global leader in mission critical LTE-based handsets for public safety, is teaming up with more than 20 technology leaders at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE), the authoritative annual event for communications technology professionals around the world.
"The transition from LMR to LTE is an evolution, not a revolution," said Sonim CEO Bob Plaschke. "Public safety agencies that are paying attention to the shifting communications landscape need to consider a number of factors involved in migrating to LTE. Today, Sonim has the technology and collaborations in place to help agencies manage the conversion with a clean, integrated solution that is easy to deploy."
Over the past several years, Sonim collaborated with technology leaders to develop a robust communications solution for public safety. Sonim combines purpose-built LTE mobile handsets and ultra-rugged accessories with customized applications and services to increase first responder effectiveness and safety at a fraction of what agencies spend today for communications capabilities.
Over the last two years, every BTOP jurisdiction, along with over 100 federal, state and local agencies have selected Sonim Technologies to participate in large public events where public safety professionals were able to leverage Band Class 14 spectrum. Below is a sampling of these important demos:

"As agencies move to adopt public and private LTE-based platforms for data communications, they will expect the same level of ruggedness, durability and reliability out of their LTE handsets as they do out of their LMR devices," said Chuck Dowd former FirstNet board member and currently a member of Sonim's Public Safety Advisory Board. "Sonim has created a powerful technology platform that will launch mission critical communications into the 21st century and make it more effective and efficient – with a handset built to the same standards that first responders have come to expect out of their communications tools."
