Base Camp Connect – Field-Deployable Interoperability Solution

Hello readers!  I wanted to make everyone aware of an incredible product out there for communications interoperability – Base Camp Connect.  This is a mobile, field-deployable interoperability platform that can bridge voice, data, and radio in minutes.  Right on their home page, they link to a YouTube video demo of their system, which shows many of its capabilities.

Along the top of their webpage, you will also find a number of tabs, including a blog.  Base Camp Connect has brought on some talented bloggers, and me, to write on topics including communications, incident management, and others.  The posts I write for Base Camp Connect are exclusive content only found on their website and LinkedIn page.

Check out their website and the YouTube videos, follow them on LinkedIn, and read through some blog posts.  In fair disclosure, while Base Camp Connect does not pay me to promote their product, they do pay me to write content for them.  I really do think they have a great product, though – so check it out.
