The article discusses the potential path for the mission-critical voice over broadband that could provide flexibility to first responders for public safety. It mentions speculations that implementation of such feature could mean an end to the dependence of public safety on private land-mobile-radio (LMR) devices. It also notes the possibility of the mission-critical voice-over-broadband network technologies through the Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.
