Webinar – The Future of Public Safety Communications

Webinar - The Future of Public Safety Communications

Join Wavefront and Anritsu for a complimentary webinar.

LTE has emerged as the favored technology for future Public Safety communications, largely due to its high bandwidth data pipe which can be flexibly used for voice, video, messaging, and other essential communications.  Based on previous LTE network buildouts in the Americas, Asia, and Europe, creating new LTE networks and devices for existing Band 14 spectrum is not a big challenge.  Creating networks and devices that interoperate with existing P25 networks as well as the myriad of commercial multi-band CDMA, W-CDMA, WiFi, and other networks  is a huge challenge, however, and doing it at an affordable cost adds immensely to this burden.

This webinar will explore:

  • Challenges to be faced in deployment of interoperable LTE Public Safety networks and devices
  • How testing can help expose and resolve issues throughout the life cycle – from development to deployment and operation.
  • A wide range of potential issues will be presented along with a corresponding range of testing solutions to help guarantee operation in all potential deployments.
  •  The webinar will focus on testing early in the life cycle with the aim of decreasing the frequency of expensive fixes in the field.

All webinar attendees will receive a 25% discount on participation in the Wavefront M2M Accelerator Program.
