CiscoÂ and BlueLine GridÂ have partnered to integrate the companies’ collaboration platforms in an effort to help facilitate digital public-safety communications between law enforcement agencies andÂ and private sector stakeholders.
Matt Melton, director of sales at BlueLine Grid, wroteÂ in a guestÂ post published Tuesday on Cisco’s website that the companiesÂ will highlight theirÂ partnershipÂ during the annual International Association of Chiefs of Police convention.
BlueGrid seeks to leverageÂ Cisco’s Spark collaboration service to helpÂ public safety and private security personnel communicate in real timeÂ through aÂ secure network,Â according to Melton.
“In the event of law enforcement incidents, cyber events, natural disasters and accidents, a successful response obviously depends on how quickly, accurately and efficiently agencies share information,” heÂ added.
HeÂ saidÂ the integratedÂ BlueLine Grid-Cisco platformÂ will work to help agencies initiate teleconferencing, invite individuals into group messaging and file-sharing, send mass notifications, share information with other agencies andÂ track officers on foot.
