Motorola Solutions’ LEX 700 Handheld Delivers LTE Data
Las Vegas—The LEX 700 Mission Critical Handheld by Motorola Solutions, Inc. offers first responders a compact, rugged form factor and quick-response interface, the device brings robust management capabilities to ensure IT staff can easily deploy its new fleet of IP data devices with full visibility and control. The LEX 700 Mission Critical Handheld is designed to provide first and secondary responders access to intuitive multimedia applications that increase situational awareness, enhance tactical collaboration, and enable greater in-field productivity. With rich-media applications designed for public safety from Motorola and other third-party developers, agencies will have access to: A shared operational view of an incident with high-quality, realtime video pulled from fixed and mobile cameras or streamed to the field from the command center; Tracking information from mobile computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and real-time collaboration software lets everyone see the positions of field assets and know where they need to be next.
Everyday tasks like ticket writing, identity verification and suspect booking are handled within minutes on the scene, and transmitted directly to headquarters so there’s no need to file paperwork. In addition, the device is designed to deliver data, photos, video and voice quickly, reliably and securely over multiple networks. It starts with Public Safety LTE, and includes Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE, 3G EV-DO, and 1x RTT networks, as well as 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.
The LEX 700 provides multiple voice communications options, from making a simple phone call to joining a Project 25 (P25) radio talk group via a P25-LTE gateway. A dedicated Push-to-Talk (PTT) button and dual-mic, advanced noise-canceling capabilities help ensure the user’s voice will be heard.
AccessData Releases Forensic Toolkit® (FTK®) 4
Lindon, Utah— AccessData’s Forensic Toolkit® (FTK®) 4 is designed to give FTK users enterprise-class capabilities at a stand-alone price. A new feature called Single-Node Enterprise gives FTK users the full analysis functionality of AD Enterprise, AccessData’s enterprise-class investigation and incident response solution. This gives organizations affordable access to more advanced incident response and remote investigative capabilities. Using FTK, computer forensics examiners are able to securely and remotely investigate a running computer to analyze and collect data from disk, volatile and RAM, eliminating travel and reducing response time.
FTK 4 also introduced two expansion modules for computer forensics examiners and malware analysts. These add-ons increase the breadth and depth of the FTK user experience and introduce a new paradigm for first and second responders. Cerberus is a malware analysis and triage technology that reduces the level of expertise required to triage suspected malware, allowing first and second responders to gain actionable intelligence on malware threats without waiting for a malware team to analyze binaries in a sandbox. The first step toward automated reverse engineering, Cerberus provides threat scores and disassembly analysis to determine the behavior and intent of suspect binaries, prior to sending them on for deeper analysis. Visualization allows FTK users to view data in multiple display formats, including timelines, social analyzer and pie charts. By combining the state-of-the-art backend processing of FTK with this graphical analytic interface, FTK users will enhance the accuracy and speed with which they can analyze case data.
Thales launches Long Term Evolution (LTE) Solution
Arlington, Va.—Thales’s new end-to-end integrated and distributed Long Term Evolution (LTE) solution for the U.S. public safety market is the only network with a corresponding push-to-talk smart phone that offers a fully distributed architecture for the public safety and first responder communities.
The complete offering consists of a comprehensive network management system using the LTE core broadband network, a push-to-talk smart phone device operating on the LTE network, and applications that support first responders in the field. The resilience of Thales’s LTE full IP distributed architecture allows dispatchers to successfully communicate messages between several interconnected base stations, towers and first responders even if one of the base stations or towers is out of service.
The unique, distributed architecture at the core of the Thales LTE network will also provide users with added security and flexibility by taking away the risk of a single point of failure in the system.
