Selex ES at CPExpo 2013: "First responder communications requirements, evolutions & solutions"

  1. 1. First Responder Communications: requirements, evolutions and solutions A.Benvenuto
  2. 2. AL1 The Company Key facts The Divisions 17,900AL2 people Airborne & Space Systems Revenues in excess of 3.5 billion Euros ELECTRONIC and INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES for Italy and UK as domestic marketsDATA - INFRASTRUCTURES - LAND SECURITY & PROTECTION Land & Naval Systems DEFENCE SYSTEMS - AEROSPACE SMART SOLUTIONS Strong footprint in • US Security & Smart Systems • Germany • Romania • Brazil • Saudia Arabia • India • Turkey Entrusted to deliver technology-enabled systems and solutions for a safer, smarter and more secure society
  3. 3. Diapositiva 2 AL1 Amanda Lachlan; 14/10/2013 AL2 Actually now 17,700 Amanda Lachlan; 14/10/2013
  4. 4. Our divisions Airborne and Space Systems Division • • • • • • • • • • Airborne radar Sensors Electronic warfare systems Avionics Integrated mission systems Airborne surveillance systems Tactical UAS Target drones Simulation systems Space sensors and equipment Land and Naval Systems Division • • • • • Integrated command land and naval command and control systems Land and naval radar Electro-optical sensors Tactical communication systems and equipment Battlefield protection systems and equipment Security and Smart Systems Division • • • • • • Homeland and critical infrastructures’ protection and security architectures Secure communications systems Information technology Information management and automation systems Airport systems Air traffic and vessel management and control systems
  5. 5. Security and Smart Systems division Key focus Promote convergence in the market by harvesting synergies across IT, communications, sensors, automation, physical and cyber security. Leverage on dual use technologies that AL3 comes from the military environment (UAV, command and control, radars, secure comms, etc.) Develop large scale systems integrating Selex ES products/solutions with best of breed third party components
  6. 6. Diapositiva 4 AL3 originating Amanda Lachlan; 14/10/2013
  7. 7. Communications & emergencies First responders needs & characteristics Prevent Alert Manage Coordination / command & control chain Situation awareness Mostly voice communications Instant communications Reliability Coverage Ruggedness Rapid deployment Security
  8. 8. Professional users technologies Robust Reliable Fast communications Excellent group operations Priority control Direct mode Voice services Narrowband data services Operating in VHF/UHF
  9. 9. Operation context evolution AL4 • New way of working are appearing and imposing requirements on operational and technological side for all organizations cooperating for Homeland Security • Consolidation of existing technologies and AL5 entrance of newer solutions can support the evolution of operations scenario
  10. 10. Diapositiva 7 AL4 New ways of working are emerging which have an impact on the operational and technological requirements of organisations concerned with homeland security and protection Amanda Lachlan; 14/10/2013 AL5 The consolidation of existing technologies and development of new solutions will help to support the evolution of the operational scenario Amanda Lachlan; 14/10/2013
  11. 11. Communications requirements Bandwidth, to support new and future requirements Coverage. Uniform coverage versus spotted; Urban, suburban, rural areas… are underserved zones acceptable? Security. Reservation and confidentiality requirement AL6 even enforced by the increase of information exchanged but threats increase with the level of connectivity Functionality. Guarantee the same services as current PMR networks…in a multi-media context Reliability. Guarantee the same level as current PMR networks…Services has to be assured even in critical conditions Sustainability. Many PMR networks still in deployment phases…Economic situation is cutting expense budgets
  12. 12. Diapositiva 8 AL6 Restrictions are required due to the sensitivity of information exchanged and the potential threats posed to exposed information Amanda Lachlan; 14/10/2013
  13. 13. Public networks and critical conditions ARE PUBLIC NETWORKS ABLE TO PROVIDE SECURE AND RELIABLE SERVICE DURING AL7 CRITICAL CONDITIONS? Saturation • Exponential growth of phone calls make the network unusable Absence of priority mechanism • Preemption and priority for emergency calls are not supported Unreliability • Network is not resilient to pervasive and multiple points of failure Absence of extended and easy to use encryption • Network is not able to secure data transmission in a simple and native way Different business model • Profit vs service • Different size/numbers involved 100% Public Safety organisations rely on private mobile radio for critical voice communications 89% Public Safety decision makers believe data is also mission critical
  14. 14. Diapositiva 9 AL7 even in Amanda Lachlan; 14/10/2013
  15. 15. 4G technologies State of the art terrestrial cellular broadband standard Developed by 3GPP Mobile technology with fastest development More than 130 live networks True broadband services Data only Full IP LTE and Public Safety Community LTE is the first 3GPP technology which has the technical requirements to implement PPDR services LTE network model is simple and it can be scaled down for small/medium deployments LTE has mechanisms to enforce QoS It is generally accepted that LTE will have a role in future PMR network as a possible reference technology TCCA and 3GPP are working for including PMR needed features into the standard …BUT
  16. 16. Issues Who is working at… Standard bodies Professional voice support Direct mode support Native PTT Multicast Prioritization over commercial networks Spectrum availability Affordability Business models Devices Ecosystem Technology related Government related Market related Sector Org. Gov. Rulers Vendors Operators
  17. 17. Timings Different scenarios may be proposed by other organisations LTE will surely have a role Consolidation of a standardised/widely accepted solution will take time …First responders have the need TODAY
  18. 18. Future scenarios Our vision... Evolution not Revolution Whichever the future…it will be heterogeneous Capability to provide a smooth evolution of PMR to a full BB environment is a must Technology integration is THE SOLUTION Whichever the technology mix, the network needs to be perceived as a single entity by users and apps
  19. 19. Selex ES CSP Common Control Room And Applications PERSEUS/CSP is the Selex ES framework that allows interoperability with existing equipment, applications and services. Integration Infrastructure Following Next Generation Networks paradigm CSP can provide: • • • • Communications integration Common subscriber management Common Security Common network model for application development Individual Access networks CSP PERSEUS Supports network evolution in a non disruptive way allowing a phased approach for: • Narrowband technologies integration • Broadband (LTE) introduction • Interaction with Public networks DMR TETRA Broadband (LTE/WiFi) Cellular (2G/3G)
