Motorola Solutions Readies its Public Safety LTE Solution

Motorola Solutions will begin shipping its first Public Safety LTE solution on Nov. 11, 2011 (11/11/11).
The commercial release builds on the company's alliances with Ericsson and Verizon Wireless.


This Public Safety LTE solution will support a host of public safety applications such as Motorola's PremierOne and other computer-aided dispatch (CAD), real-time video streaming, tactical collaboration, dynamic mapping and routing, and in-field reporting as well as push-to-talk and voice telephony.


Motorola also noted the following:

The first release of Public Safety LTE will prioritize bandwidth on standards-based LTE depending on the responder's agency, role and applications being used.


Ericsson provides LTE radio access and packet core networks with field-proven stability, throughput, and latency – key factors for Public Safety workers.


The Ericsson LTE eNodeB equipment, RBS 6000, included in Motorola's Public Safety LTE solution complies with 3GPP Release 9, exceeding the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Public Safety Communications Research Program (PSCR) mandate of 3GPP Release 8.


The Motorola and Verizon Wireless alliance will enable first responders to realize connectivity to their services on both the Motorola Public Safety LTE network and nationwide Verizon Wireless' 3G/4G network.


Motorola has publicly announced three Public Safety LTE projects: San Francisco Bay Area; Harris County, Texas; and the state of Mississippi. http://portal.motorolasolutions.com/portal/site/NGPS

  • In August, Motorola introduced two LTE devices aimed at public safety applications. The VML700 LTE Vehicle Modem connects equipment in the patrol car, fire apparatus, or command vehicle to Band Class 14 LTE networks. The solid state device can also connect to EVDO and WiFi networks. It is built to withstand heat, cold, rain, dust, humidity and vibration.


    The UM1000 USB LTE Modem plugs into a USB port to allow laptops or mobile computers access to a Public Safety LTE network.
