SAVER Project: Bridging/Patching/Gateway Equipment

Federal, state, and local response agencies maintain their own radio communications networks, which are often incompatible with each other. Bridging/patching/gateway equipment is used to ensure interoperability between multiple agencies working at an incident site.

The Bridging/Patching/Gateway Equipment Market Survey Report is a limited distribution document, and is available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).

Find this project in the FEMA Authorized Equipment List and InterAgency Board Interactive Standardized Equipment List.
