Improving efficiency and making cost savings are constant demands upon public safety organisations everywhere. At the same time, advances in mobile connectivity have changed the landscape dramatically. The boom of smartphones has driven understanding and usage of wireless internet. TETRA has served well until now, but
its low bandwidth data solutions do not meet modern demands. It is difficult to understand why an expensive public safety vehicle should not have the same or better capabilities than the average teenager carries in their pocket.
Efficient modern public safety organisations demand access to databases like patient records, criminal registers, stolen car registers and even building plans. It is crucial that used data remains always up to date and easily accessible, otherwise our security and health becomes compromised. Other modern applications are needed both now and in the near future. Secure video streaming is currently the most wanted application. All modern PSS services require secure, resilient ‘always online’ connectivity with built in redundancy.
