Public safety LTE (Long-Term Evolution) is a wireless communication technology specifically designed for use by public safety agencies, such as police, fire, and emergency medical services. It is a high-speed data network that enables first responders to communicate and share critical information during emergency situations. Factors such as the need for reliable communication during emergencies and the growing demand for high-speed data are expected to drive market growth.
A few examples of PS-LTE networks are FirstNet, Emergency Services Network (ESN), and Safe-Net. FirstNet is a PS-LTE network across the U.S. that provides dedicated broadband connectivity for public safety agencies. The network is managed by AT&T Inc. and designed to offer secure and reliable public safety communications with priority access, preemption, and encryption features. In the U.K., the ESN is being deployed to replace the Airwave TETRA network, offering secure and reliable broadband connectivity for public safety agencies across the country. The ESN is being built and operated by Motorola Solutions, Inc. Safe-Net, a PS-LTE network, is being rolled out in multiple states of Australia by Motorola Solutions Inc. to provide dedicated broadband connectivity for public safety agencies.
Public safety LTE (PS-LTE) networks are designed exclusively for public safety agencies and offer a dedicated, secure, and dependable broadband connection. These networks are usually constructed and managed by either a public safety agency or the government and are not shared with commercial users. The major advantages of using dedicated PS-LTE networks are priority and preemption, security, reliability, and interoperability. Some of the disadvantages of PS-LTE networks are cost, coverage, and complexity. Public safety LTE can integrate with other emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, drones, and IoT devices to further enhance emergency response capabilities. This makes it a valuable technology for public safety agencies looking to modernize their operations.
In October 2022, AIRBUS and Capgemini-led consortium selected by the French Ministry of the Interior and Overseas Territories to play the critical integrator role in the Réseau Radio du Futur (RRF) program, which aims to offer public-safety broadband services throughout France. The RRF network will provide secure and prioritized 4G and 5G connectivity to fulfill the modern communication needs of France's security and emergency services, particularly in terms of data and video.
Based on type, the market is segmented into infrastructure & service. By infrastructure, the market is further segmented into evolved packet core (EPC), evolved UMTS terrestrial radio access network (E-UTRAN), and end-use devices. The EPC is a system architecture that facilitates the delivery of integrated voice and data services over a 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network.
In June 2022, Motorola Solutions, Inc. announced the launch of the MXP7000, a portable device that combines TETRA and 4G LTE voice and data communications to provide mission-critical communication capabilities to military and public safety agencies. The device offers access to voice and data communication and allows for video sharing, giving first responders greater flexibility and situational awareness during emergency response. The device is designed to be easy to operate with a glove-friendly touch screen and large physical buttons.
