[TPR1009] Public Safety LTE for Management and Business Personnel *NEW*

Printer-friendly PDF version

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is based on air interface technologies that use scarce spectrum resources more efficiently. LTE provides much higher data rates (over 100 Mbps) to users while reducing the cost-per-bit for service providers. This is very exciting to network operators planning to deploy multimedia rich Internet content over a wireless medium with seamless access anywhere at any time. Special features such as dynamic prioritization, pre-emption of sessions, Group Communication System Enablers (GCSE) and Proximity Services (ProSe) are added to LTE to support the needs of the Public Safety community. This course demonstrates the suitability of LTE for Public Safety with its simplified architecture and enhancements to support public safety features. It steps through the differences between LTE and LMR/P-25 technologies. It also gives high level call flow scenarios for GCSE and concepts of ProSe. Advancements such as Mission Critical Push to Talk (MCPTT) and Isolated ETURAN Operations for Public Safety (IOPS) are also covered briefly.
