LMR-IWF is a key solution that enables interoperability between LMR and MCPTX networks, bridging the gap between them. Once LMR-IWF is implemented, LMR devices can communicate with advanced MCPTX smartphone devices. In the U.S. alone, over ten million LMR devices are currently in use by public safety agencies and enterprises. Interoperability between LMR and MCPTX is becoming even more important for both types of networks to co-exist and operate across both technologies. As MCPTT is integrated with the Carrier’s Core network, IWF virtually extends LMR coverage, enabling First Responders availability beyond areas they typically serve.
