Download: LTE for Critical Communications
LTE is destined to become the next standard for critical communications according to many representatives of the industry, consultants and end-users. The TETRA Association has changed its name to TETRA + Critical Communications Association (TCCA) to reflect this imminent shift in the industry. Many LTE-only suppliers, cellular operators and user groups became members of the TCCA to join the debate and benefit from new insights.
The adoption of LTE by FirstNet for public safety organisations in the US, the preference for LTE by the UK Home Office, and intentions of South Korea to build a nationwide LTE network for Public Safety has become the catalyst for development of LTE for Critical Communications.
Being at the forefront of TETRA-LTE integration, Rohill has developed a comprehensive strategy to accept the challenge and identify the opportunities for an integrated TETRA-LTE solution, considering all benefits and limitations of LTE for broadband communication. The LTEtraNode product range is developing towards an open standards-based mission-critical solution, while on short term offering all benefits that are offered by LTE today.
Although Public Safety is the primary focus of LTE for Critical Communications, also other segments can benefit from our LTEtraNode solution, down to cost-sensitive commercial applications that can operate on public LTE networks.
This white paper provides an analysis of standards development as well as benefits, limitations, opportunities and challenges of LTE for Critical Communications. This analysis was the basis for the comprehensive strategy for LTEtraNode product development, of which the architecture, features and benefits are explained as well.
