Operation Convergent Response

Start your journey now.

Operation Convergent Response, or #OCR2017, explores the “Art of the Possible.” At this event, learn how first responders in public and private sectors can use advancements in Intelligent Networks (SDx), advanced security, the Internet of Things (IoT), smart and secure city solutions and autonomous systems to enhance crises response operations.

A successful journey begins with in-depth explorations. It gains momentum through cultivated relationships and partnerships. #OCR2017 was designed to accomplish both. Verizon has teamed up with The Guardian Centers, Nokia, Aegex and a host of Verizon’s Innovation SmartStreet Program participants to explore hand-in-hand with customers how technology and innovation investments can transition from high-value daily use into ultra-high value benefits in extreme situations. Invited attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore, learn and interact with the subject matter experts behind a comprehensive array of technologies.
  • Meet and interact with leaders and experts from around the world with various roles in government and industry alike.
  • Experience the visceral reality of major disasters while observing how existing and  emerging technologies might be applied to solve highly complex problems.

#OCR2017 is not open to the general public. Participant registration requires a sponsor who will join you for this experience. Partnership “learning by doing together” lets everyone serve as a contributor. Invitees have been carefully selected to ensure maximum diversity in represented perspectives across multiple sectors, industries and communities of interest.
