Research and Markets: Public Safety Communications - LTE/FirstNet and LMR/P25-TETRA: Technological and Marketing Analysis 2014

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vpstlj/public_safety) has announced the addition of the "Public Safety Communications - LTE/FirstNet and LMR/P25-TETRA: Technological and Marketing Analysis" report to their offering.

This report is important for organizations involved in the PSC development. They need to understand the technological and marketing dynamics of a new generation of PSC networks.

For manufacturers, this report provides valuable information on competition. It also supports these vendors with PSC market assessments.

This report is about technological and marketing specifics of Public Safety Communications (PSC). Particular, it addresses the following items:

  • Introduction and future development of PSC based on the LTE technology. LTE marketing and technological analysis is performed. The first U.S. nationwide PSC LTE-based network - FirstNet - launch and development are addressed. The industry, which supports LTE networks and, particular, FirstNet implementations is discussed. Technical details of FirstNet are also analyzed.
  • The current status of the P25 technology and markets are discussed. The survey of P25 vendors' portfolios is presented.
  • The current status of the TETRA technology and markets are discussed. The survey of TETRA vendors' portfolios is presented.
  • Co-existence of traditional P25 and TETRA technologies and LTE technology in PSC is discussed.

The report objective was also to discuss the PSC future. At the present time, P25 and TETRA radios dominate PSC. Already in 2012, PSC LTE-based systems have been introduced. Benefits of such systems include high speed of transmission and economics of commercially available equipment, among others.

At the same time, LTE systems, currently, cannot fulfil all requirements of PSC users. The report is discussing such limitations; 3GPP standards that are going to address some of these issues will not be ready until 2019-2020. The report emphasizes that in foreseeable future LTE and P25/TETRA technologies will probably co-exist in PSC.

The report is written for a large audience of technical and managerial staff involved in the development and implementation of PSC networks.
