  • LTE for Public Safety Networks

    This chapter describes the special characteristics of Public Safety networks and explains why LTE was selected as technology enabler for future Public Safety networks. Deployment considerations and a discussion of interworking aspects complete this section.

  • Future Mobile Broadband PPDR Communications Systems

    This chapter identifies and discusses the main techno‐economic drivers that are anticipated to be pivotal in the evolution of PPDR communications. It explains the key techno‐economic drivers across three dimensions such as technology, network and spectrum. The paradigm change fuelled by the techno‐economic drivers clearly advocates for the gradual introduction of the LTE technology into the PPDR ecosystem, letting the PPDR community benefit from the synergies with commercial domain and from emerging wireless communications technologies and concepts. On this basis, the challenge for PPDR agencies and governments around the world is finding the right deployment scenario and associated business model for the delivery of mobile broadband PPDR communications. The chapter provides a detailed overview of the current major initiatives that are paving the way towards mobile broadband PPDR.

  • Public Protection and Disaster Relief Communications

    The public protection and disaster relief (PPDR) sector brings essential value to society by creating a stable and secure environment to maintain law and order and to protect the life and values of citizens. One important task of PPDR services is to deal with emergency and surveillance situations on land, sea and air. The most important part of this work is done in the field, so all the tools must match the needs accordingly. This chapter provides a comprehensive vision of operational aspects concerning PPDR communications that includes a categorization of PPDR operational scenarios, a description of a generic operational framework, the identification of main components and communications’ reference points and the identification of current and expected communications services that are central to PPDR operations. The chapter also describes the main communications technologies and systems currently in use for the delivery of the communications services needed for PPDR operations.

  • Mobile Broadband Data Applications and Capacity Needs

    The advantages of having real‐time access to information via a broadband connection are obvious and pave the way for a wide range of data‐centric, multimedia applications that can greatly improve the operations of PPDR organizations. This chapter provides some estimates of the throughput requirements for different types of PPDR data‐centric, multimedia applications. Then, a quantitative assessment of the required data capacity for a number of ‘typical’ PPDR operational scenarios within the categories of day‐to‐day operations, large emergency/public events and disaster scenarios is presented. PPDR data‐centric applications can have very different rate requirements that place varying levels of demand on the capacity of a broadband mobile network. The estimation of the load on the network for each of these applications is necessary for the dimensioning of the infrastructure and spectrum assets.

  • LTE Networks for PPDR Communications

    This chapter presents an overview of different service delivery options for mobile broadband PPDR communications based on the LTE technology. The service delivery options includes: options centred on the deployment of new mobile broadband dedicated, specialized networks purposely built for mission‐critical services, either GO or CO; options centred on the use of (enhanced) public access commercial networks for the delivery of mission‐critical services, either with ordinary or specific PPDR contracts; and options formulated as some sort of hybrid combination involving both dedicated and commercial infrastructures. The chapter addresses a description of these different options, with an analysis of its advantages, limitations and specific factors to be considered. It also describes some network architecture design and implementation aspects that are central for the realization of most of the described network delivery options for mobile broadband PPDR communications.

  • Radio Spectrum for PPDR Communications

    Spectrum management is the process of regulating the use of radio frequencies to promote efficient use and gain a net social benefit. This chapter provides an overview of the current key regulatory and legal instruments that govern the use of spectrum across the global, regional and national levels. The discussion on regional and national levels is primarily focused on the European context. The chapter talks about the models and evolution of spectrum management practices in the quest for achieving a more efficient and flexible use of spectrum resources. It describes the different uses of spectrum needed across the different components of a PPDR communications delivery solution. Then, the methodologies commonly used for the computation of spectrum needs are explained. A number of estimates carried out by different organizations worldwide that quantify spectrum needs for mobile broadband PPDR applications are also presented.

  • Summary and Outlook

    This chapter provides a summary of what was explained in previous parts of this book. It is meant as a wrap‐up of the LTE and LTE for Public Safety principles, how LTE impacts people's daily lives and how public safety features and services can help to enhance people's safety and security. It is mainly intended to provide a summary of the concepts addressed in the book and to provide an outlook on the future of public safety networks.

  • Regulatory Features

    This chapter provides an overview of regulatory features and priority services that should be supported by Long‐Term Evolution (LTE) networks including public safety networks. Most important features are emergency calls to a public safety answering point (fire, police, and ambulance), multimedia priority services to allow certain people making priority calls even in network congestion situations and public warning systems for broadcasting warning messages in special areas about impending emergency situations. Last but not the least, the possibility to intercept any communication between is a requirement mobile network operators have to fulfill in each country worldwide.
