  33. 33. Does it make economic sense? • The TCCA commissioned two reports into the socioeconomic value of spectrum for Public Safety • The need for PPDR Broadband Spectrum in the bands below 1 GHz J. Scott Marcus WIK-Consult GmbH • Socioeconomic Value of Mission Critical Mobile Applications for Public Safety in the EU Dr Alexander Grous Centre for Economic Performance London School of Economics and Political Science Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  34. 34. Does it make economic sense? • PPDR offers more socio-economic benefit than IMT • WIK-Consult - “if improved disaster response could reduce property losses by a mere three per cent (ignoring the value of any lives saved), the cost benefit analysis proves out. • LSE estimates a consolidated annual socioeconomic value of £5 billion from the use of 2x10 MHz in the 700MHz band for public safety in the UK and across EU28 countries, an annual value of approximately €34 billion is computed. Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  35. 35. Auctions • Professor Martin Cave recommends that Public Safety obtain spectrum through auctions • Where would they get the money from? • Who would they give the money to? • Does this make sense? Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  36. 36. Future Planning • Non critical ‘Internet’ style access will be possible from commercial cellular or dedicated LTE networks soon • Mission Critical data services may not be available until 2018 or later • Full functionality Mission Critical group based voice services may not be available until well into the next decade Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  37. 37. Data only or Voice + Data • The decisions to guarantee spectrum for PPDR are influenced by the criticality of the application. • If a data service is unavailable the fall-back is always voice Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  38. 38. Mission Critical Voice • Voice services must be regarded as “Mission Critical” • They must be available: – At all times – Throughout the operational area – Resilient – Capable of coping with flood, fire, storm, terrorist activity etc. Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  39. 39. Mission Critical Voice • “Mission Critical” Voice must: – Incorporate group working – Subscriber tracking – Subscriber management – Encryption – Include all primary features found in • • • • TETRA Tetrapol P25 etc. Without reliable voice services – LIVES WILL BE LOST Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  40. 40. Public Safety should have guaranteed access to spectrum in order to protect the health, welfare and security of citizens and their property Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  41. 41. Thank You Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association 41
  42. 42. USA Initiatives • Committed to building a Nationwide Broadband network • Have secured 2x10MHz of Spectrum (managed by the Public Safety Spectrum Trust – PSST) • Chosen LTE • US$7 billion funding • Network to be rolled out and managed by FirstNet Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  43. 43. Statement from NPSTC “There is much debate relative to whether broadband will eventually have the capabilities to replace current mission-critical public safety LMR systems, however the facts are clear that if this capability becomes reality it is not likely to happen in less than 10 years.” “Local, tribal, state, and federal public officials are urged to not abandon or stop funding their public safety voice LMR systems until such time as it can be demonstrated that broadband can safely and adequately provide public safety with the mission critical requirements currently provided by LMR.” Presentation on behalf of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association
  44. 44. Statements from FirstNet Webinar December 5th 2013 Bill D'Agostino, General Manager T J Kennedy, Deputy General Manager and Chief Chuck Dowd, Board Member Stated that there was a vital need to retain P25 / LMR for voice services in the medium to long term and for FirstNet data services to operate very much in parallel with existing narrowband voice networks.
