Our comprehensive services portfolio maximizes the possibilities of mission-critical broadband LTE based communications
New possibilities of public safety communication like the use of real-time video or multi-dimension first responder situational awareness require mobile broadband capability – and LTE has been widely recognized as the technology of choice by public safety agencies looking to evolve to the next generation of Public Safety networks.
Choosing the right network evolution strategy
There are a number of ways in which Public safety agencies could choose to evolve to LTE based mission critical broadband networks.
The first option is a dedicated LTE network deployment, in which a Public Safety agency or operator deploys a private LTE RAN and core network infrastructure for the sole purpose of Public Safety LTE services. Nokia Services is currently working with Nedaa in Dubai to develop a dedicated public safety network to meet Dubai’s smarter and safer city needs.
Another possibility is to work with a commercial Communication Service Provider (CSP) in a shared overlay network setup. Here the Public safety agency does not own the wireless network infrastructure over which it provides services to its customers but maintains its own database, applications, and billing information. An example of this is the Emergency Services Network (ESN) in the UK which is built on top of EE’s commercial LTE network where Nokia’s Services team is designing the network for universal radio coverage with critical Quality of Service (QoS).
Nokia’s Bell Labs consulting team and the Transformation services practice can help develop a comprehensive transformation strategy covering business, network, process, operations, and tools transformation to ensure public safety operators derive maximum benefit from mission-critical broadband communications.
