LTE networks offer huge potential to deliver next generation public safety
applications such as end-to-end mobile video transmission, situational
awareness and nationwide interoperable mobile data access which will assist in
improving the overall effectiveness of public safety operations. LTE’s endorsement by authorities such as the U.S Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as the wireless broadband standard for public safety agencies has lead it to gain considerable attention from worldwide operators and public safety agencies alike in a relatively short
period of time.
As a result, the year 2011 has witnessed a great deal of interest in LTE adoption by public safety organizations including LTE network contract awards for Adams
County, City of Charlotte and Mississippi, as well as prominent international trials such as the Brazilian Army LTE trial in Brasilia, in addition to the first public safety contract awarded in 2010 (for the San Francisco Bay Area Wireless Enhanced Broadband System).
