Expway, the LTE Broadcast leader, announced at Critical Communications World 2016 today, the general availability of the Expway PMR PS-LTE Solution for the Private Mobile Radio and Public Safety market. The solution boosts critical-communication systems with the efficiency of LTE Broadcast. It allows private and public emergency response teams to benefit from powerful unified communication services that combine Push-To-Talk, Push-To-Video and large file delivery.
The Expway PMR PS-LTE Solution allows a first responder to transmit critical information only once to every troop member, instead of individually. This makes the solution extremely scalable, and resilient to congestion. The solution enables private and public safety agencies to use strictly committed and prioritized high-bandwidth, with a consistently high quality-of-service.
“As a market leader in LTE Broadcast, we think the PMR PS-LTE market is a natural extension for our offering”, said Bruno Westeel, Director of Product Management at Expway. “Mission-critical communication systems mandate LTE Broadcast for its inherent qualities. As the only provider of a complete end-to-end LTE Broadcast solution, we are the best player to deliver this mandatory piece.”
Expway’s solution includes the Expway LTE Broadcast server and provisioning manager, as well as the Expway middleware, which resides on the responders’ ruggedized mobile devices. Also available is the Expway eBox for PMR PS-LTE. It is a compact and portable LTE Broadcast network for device makers to evaluate and demo their mission-critical devices over LTE Broadcast.
The Expway PMR PS-LTE solution is a natural evolution of Expway’s 3GPP standard-based LTE Broadcast products, already deployed commercially by carriers worldwide. Fed4PMR, a consortium lead by PS-LTE equipment vendor Thales that includes mobile operator SFR, has chosen the Expway PMR PS-LTE solution comprising products as key building blocks.
