Internet of Everything Capabilities for Homeland Security and Law Enforcement White Paper Executive Summary Faced with faster-evolving and increasingly complex threats, homeland security and law enforcement professionals need the ability to easily and securely share information across federal, state, and local boundaries. Challenging their ability to collaborate and cooperate are legacy command, control and communications architectures never designed to cross organizational or jurisdictional boundaries. Fortunately, the arrival of the Internet of Everything (IoE) provides technologies to lower these barriers. The power of IoE allows previously disparate agencies to effectively and efficiently coordinate, collaborate and securely extend their networks to fulfill their demanding missions. One such tool available today is The Cisco® Connected Border solution which integrates computing, storage, and virtualization assets as well as operational technologies such as wearable and remote sensors into a seamless, operationally relevant network. Connected Homeland Security and Law Enforcement The primary goals of homeland security and law enforcement are to prevent, protect, respond, and recover across a broad array of national, state and local missions. To that end, the professionals in these agencies must be able to reach across federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, exchanging vital information while coordinating activities quickly and accurately. When these capabilities are enhanced through integrated, collaborative technologies, public safety and security across the nation are also enhanced. Among the many missions and capabilities that require collaboration are: • Detect and apprehend terrorists, criminals and other threats to national and local security • Surveille and share intelligence on a variety of criminal and security interests • Increase real-time situational awareness and reduce response times through installation and maintenance of a variety of early warning sensors • Establish and ensure consistent and ubiquitous interoperability through integrated voice, video, and data mediums over a wide range of networks and waveforms • Improve communications where they are hampered by degraded and/or non-existing infrastructure • Protect critical infrastructure

Internet of Everything Capabilities for Homeland Security and Law Enforcement White Paper The Internet of Everything The IoE assembles people, processes, data, things, and networking entities to become exponentially more relevant, effective and valuable. The result for agencies is the ability to instantly share real-time actionable intelligence, make faster and more informed decisions, assemble and parse data through advanced analytics, and generate greater situational awareness across the entire mission environment. Every connection, every sensor, every piece of information becomes a building block, and together these building blocks create a structure that enables Homeland Security and law enforcement agencies to more effectively and efficiently accomplish their missions. For the public, the results are increased security, more effective law enforcement and enhanced safety. The Network: The Platform for IoE IoE integrates human communications, collaboration, and analytical elements via common tools such as mobile video, vehicles, remote sensors and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). When operated over secure networks underpinned by Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) technologies security and law enforcement agencies are connected to the vital information they need in real time to respond to changing threat conditions, gain operational advantage over threats and enhance the security for the responding agents themselves.

Internet of Everything Capabilities for Homeland Security and Law Enforcement White Paper The Cisco® Connected Border Solution As just one example of the complexity of 21st-century law enforcement needs, border security missions require real-time and untethered interactions between field agents, law enforcement, intelligent sensors, and intelligent analytics systems. The Cisco® Connected Border Solution helps agencies enhance situational awareness and operational capabilities using integrated real-time voice, video, and data while bridging communications gaps by integrating existing land mobile radio (LMR) with cellular and next-generation wireless technologies. The Cisco Connected Border Solution also enables and integrates computing, storage, and virtualization assets in the data center as well as operational technologies such as wearable and remote sensors. This includes Cisco Fog Computing nodes that extend IP to the edge of operations and leverage the Cisco Intercloud Fabric to enable secure voice and video for the mobile environment. This solution can be scaled to enhance homeland security and federal law enforcement operations and requirements across specific mission environments. Additionally, it allows for the adoption of proven legacy DoD capabilities to connect multiple agencies and field personnel across IP-enabled systems. It also enables agencies to host information in a secure cloud environment for anywhere, anytime access; supports fixed and rapid deployment operation centers with collaboration and situational awareness tools; and integrates sensor platforms to capture data and close communications gaps. In addition, it enables agencies to connect and implement vehicular platforms (land, sea, and air) and mobile field agent capabilities. The Cisco Connected Border solution enables agencies to: • Transparently integrate wired and wireless technologies (LMR, Wi-Fi, public 3G and 4G, private 4G, satellite, WAN, LAN, and data center) • Support existing and next-generation mission-critical voice, video, and data application convergence • Deliver quality of service (QoS) and information assurance using integrated network services in degraded environments and existing infrastructure

Internet of Everything Capabilities for Homeland Security and Law Enforcement White Paper The Next Transformation Security and law enforcement professionals envision an environment in which shared situational awareness enables the self-synchronization necessary to dramatically increase operational effectiveness. Professionals also need to serve our citizens and protect the nation by having the ability to communicate and share information despite austere, degraded, or nonexistent critical infrastructure. The need for agility, resilience, and adaptability is more critical than ever. As tactics, techniques, and procedures use advancements in technology, Cisco will continue to be an enduring partner, working to enable homeland security and law enforcement professionals to benefit from the Internet of Everything.

  6. 6. Internet of Everything Capabilities for Homeland Security and Law Enforcement White Paper Summary The IoE — the networked connection of people, processes, data, and things — presents a tremendous opportunity for today’s homeland security and law enforcement professionals. The deployment of proven, mature, secure, converged mobility solutions; network security; cloud; and big data analysis enables integrated and more fully aware mission execution while providing the power to connect personnel in ways that fundamentally transforms operations. The IoE is opening new possibilities to connect agencies in the most challenging environments. IoE enhances their situational awareness and response capabilities, and provides real-time and near-real-time situational awareness, intra-agency communication, collaboration (voice, data, and video services), data analytics, and information sharing.
