Demystifying the Convergence of Mobile Communication Networks for First Responders

Can LTE Replace LMR For Critical Communications?

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for first responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities first responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet. However, questions remain as to whether LTE networks can fulfill the mission-critical communication needs of first responders.
