Scenarios that combine LTE mobile broadband and TETRA digital radio

14 July, 2014

Motorola Solutions opens Mission Critical Solutions Centre to shape future of public safety communications.

The million-Euro Mission Critical Solutions Centre is a test lab and live demonstration facility at the company’s European Headquarters in the UK.

‘Emergency services respond to terrorist bomb threat’, is just one of many test scenarios playing out at Motorola Solutions’ Mission Critical Solutions Centre. The facility has been designed specifically to address the needs for new applications and services that will support emergency service personnel tasked with delivering Public Safety on our streets in the years to come.

The Motorola Solutions Mission Critical Solutions Centre provides a test bed for combining voice and data into familiar mission-critical operations. Data gathering from cameras, smartphones, social media and sensors provides new levels of intelligence for Public Safety agencies, but also generates new challenges.

Motorola Solutions’ Mission Critical Solutions Centre supports agencies to realise operations that can manage this increased flow of data and then extract useful intelligence. This can then be applied to meet operational demands, replicated within the facility, such as: incident creation; resource allocation; mobilisation; information analysis and distribution of real time intelligence to manage and then control an incident.

Paul Steinberg, senior vice president and CTO Motorola Solutions, commented: “The combination of TETRA and 3GPP standards-based high speed LTE mobile data networks for mission critical communications will have tremendous implications for the way that public safety is delivered in the future. From new devices that securely capture and communicate data, to ingestion and management of new forms and levels of intelligence. What becomes important is the ability to secure a single operational view which can then be successfully communicated in real time for a unified response. Motorola Solutions’ Mission Critical Solutions Centre enables the most useful features from both TETRA and LTE applications in order to generate the next advances in public safety.”
