In response to the growing demand for end-to-end LTE based public safety networks, Alepo, a global LTE solutions provider has selected Parallel Wireless, for a joint public safety LTE Network-in-a-box solution that can lower deployment time and costs without sacrificing performance and security.
This announcement is supported with a a trial with a first responder network in the Pacific Rim region prone to earthquakes. The fire, police, and ambulance services in the region will benefit greatly from an independent, private network that doesn’t rely on the public communications networks, which can go down or be congested during an emergency.
The combined public safety solution provides an end-to-end, LTE ready, mission-critical network-in-a-box. The solution pairs Alepo’s PCRF and HSS with Parallel Wireless’s RAN hardware, microwave backhaul, HetNet gateway and embedded evolved packet core. As an end-to-end package, the solution yields significant cost-saving benefits, including a ready and rapid deployment, proven interoperability, and ease of daily operations.
Private LTE network-in-a-box, tailored for emergency services and tactical communication needs, can be transformative for first responders, especially in areas where there is no existing coverage or coverage is spotty. The joint public safety solution can be deployed in various tactical and multi-cast environments, from police station coverage, to ad hoc scenarios in case of emergencies.
4G LTE in public safety gives law enforcement the advantage to access information, stream video, and collaborate in real time. “LTE can allow public safety field personnel to use bandwidth-intensive applications, such as real-time video/CCTV, which narrowband data networks cannot deliver,” said Derrick Gross, Vice President of Business Development at Alepo. “The public safety LTE market is coming out of the infancy stage and has already experienced good growth trajectory in the last few years, which, in our eyes, is a sure sign of an optimistic future.”
