The ability for first responders to communicate within a building during an emergency is vital for them to do their jobs efficiently. In today’s public safety networks, various technologies are used for mission critical voice communications, with the most common being P25 Phase I and II in North America and TETRA, internationally. With the growing trend for high speed data communication such as live video feeds and high-definition video surveillance, broadband communications has become critical to public safety. This has led to the selection of the 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) as the basis for evolving public safety communications worldwide.
In this webinar, 451 Research and Dali Wireless will discuss the current requirements of public safety, the impact of LTE, and recommendations on how to meet the current public safety requirements while being able to adopt to the evolving requirements as required.
