Ericsson and Motorola Solutions business of Motorola have partnered to provide new LTE-based offering for public safety mobile broadband. Both the companies will interoperate with mission critical voice and data to unify the delivery of voice and broadband multimedia applications.
The LTE mobile broadband technology will allow Motorola’s unified next generation platform to provide the advanced communications capabilities demanded by public safety with real-time information sharing between an integrated multimedia command centre and field forces, through a collaborative portfolio of rugged radios, in-vehicle terminals and handheld LTE data devices.
Ericsson will provide its LTE access equipment along with parts of its packet core and related services to deliver broadband multimedia services to public safety.
Motorola’s advanced devices, video security and command and control offerings will leverage these platforms to offer public safety unprecedented situational collaboration and situational awareness.
Ericsson radio networks vice president and head Ulf Ewaldsson said that high speed mobile broadband and LTE based technology provide new opportunities for the public safety sector.
"LTE enables a number of new applications and video communication from the site of accident to the communication central. Improved situation awareness empowers efficient decisions, secure assets and property and may in the end, save lives," Ewaldsson said.
