  1. 1. Public Safety Communications Research Public Safety LTE Emil Olbrich NIST PSCR LTE Lead 1 Department of Commerce – Boulder Labs
  2. 2. Public Safety Communications Research Program Located at theDepartment of CommerceBoulder Labs in ColoradoThe PSCR Program is a joint effort between NIST’s Office of LawEnforcement Standards (OLES) and NTIA’s Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) 2
  3. 3. PSCR Vision and MissionVISION MISSIONThe response community To fulfill this vision, PSCR willnationwide can exchange act as an objective technicalvoice and data seamlessly to advisor and laboratory toeffectively respond to any public safety to accelerateincident or emergency. the adoption and implementation of only theSeamless voice and data exchange most critical public safetyrefers to the ability of the responsecommunity to interoperate with each communication standardsother on demand, in real time, when and technologies.needed, and when authorized. 3
  4. 4. Game Changer…• On February 22, 2012 President Obama signed the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 – US Public Law 112-96• The section pertinent to telecom & public safety is: – TITLE VI – PUBLIC SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS AND ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM AUCTIONSThis changed everything… 44
  5. 5. Legislative Directive• The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) will be established by the National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) – Established as an independent authority within NTIA• FirstNet is required to establish a nationwide public safety broadband network to be based on a single, national network architecture• The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will reallocate and grant a license for the use of the 700 MHz D block spectrum and existing public safety broadband spectrum to FirstNet – Holds the single public safety 700 MHz wireless broadband license 5
  6. 6. First Responder Network Authority - FirstNet• Headed by a Board – 15 members – Secretary of Homeland Security – Attorney General of the United States – Director of the Office of Management and Budget – 12 additional members selected by the Secretary of Commerce• Takes all actions necessary to ensure the building, deployment, and operations of the nationwide public safety broadband network, in consultation with Federal, State, tribal, and local public safety entities, Director of NIST, the Commission, and public safety advisory committee• Ensures deployment phases with substantial rural coverage milestones 6
  7. 7. Public Safety Trust FundSec. 6413 of the statute lays out the fundingfor FirstNet and other agencies which isprimarily based on funds generated fromincentive auctions of spectrum (see Sec 6401)• $7,000,000,000 – total amount that will eventually be allocated t0 FirstNet – $2,000,000,000 immediately available to the NTIA - borrowed from the US Treasury before incentive auction • $5,000,000,000 will come later from spectrum incentive auctions• $135,000,000 Available for state planning grants 7
  8. 8. • AGREEMENT.—For purposes of• subparagraph (A), a ‘‘covered leasing agreement’’ means• a written agreement resulting from a public-private• arrangement to construct, manage, and operate the nationwide• public safety broadband network between the First• Responder Network Authority and secondary user to• permit—• (i) access to network capacity on a secondary basis• for non-public safety services; 8
  9. 9. Market Share• Creates a new nationwide spectrum block for public safety users and secondary users (e.g. Utility Companies) – Includes all Emergency Support Functions (ESF) for local, state and federal users – Approximately 2.5 million ‘first responders’ – 2010 Census data shows 22.6 million Fed/State/Local employees – This is our target • State – 5.3 million • Local – 14.3 million Terrestrial Network Population Coverage 98% • Federal – 3 million 94% – Does not include redundancy, 90% Ad-Hoc or Satellite Network Population Coverage M2M or sensors• Typical nationwide cellular service providers require approximately 40,000+ macro base-stations 99

  12. 12. Why we need to do this…Public Safety Interoperability 12
  13. 13. Demo Lab & Location• The initial laboratory and demonstration network utilize the PSCR facilities located in Boulder, CO. – PSCR Boulder labs are used for EPC & RAN testing – Local Application servers – RF, signaling test equipment • Multiple drive test • RF Load testing • End-to-End test capability – RF to individual EPC interfaces – Multiple EPCs on site in various configurations – distributed and full core – UICC programming capability• Network modeling and simulation team dedicated to work on nationwide modeling and support our network – Develop own tools and use Opnet, Mentum & Aircom 13

  18. 18. UE Testing • PSCR utilizing PCS Type Certification Review Board as UE Certification for our program NOTE: PSCR is not a PCS Type Certification Review Board certification (PTCRB) labSpecification Band Number of TC in RFT 76 Number of TC Valid Number of TC Valid as %3GPP TS 36.521-1 FDD 14 53 45 85%3GPP TS 36.521-1 FDD 14 29 12 41%3GPP TS 36.521-1 FDD 14 288 225 78% • This is enough valid TCs to start Band 14 Certification 18
  19. 19. PSCR Standards & Testing• Lead and participate in public safety requirements development• Generate interest from broadband vendors to develop a 700 MHz broadband equipment ecosystem – Band Class 14 (D Block & Public Safety Block), Long Term Evolution (LTE) – Stimulate early development for public safety systems (e.g. Waiver Orders) – Support & participate in the commercial standards and testing process with public safety requirements e.g. – Publish test results (non-attributable) to inform stakeholders ! 19
  20. 20. Global Market• US is leading the way globally for public safety LTE but we are working to build global public safety requirements – European TETRA association – TCCA (signed support letter for PSCR on May 15, 2012) – Sao Paulo Military Police Force and Brazilian Army preparing for World Cup. – Hong Kong Police – New Zealand/Australian protection forces – Abu Dhabi Police – Qatar Armed Forces – Canada CITIG – Dutch Police 20
