LTE and emergency response

January 2012: Last Year, Broadcast Engineering reported that the FCC had "approved a proposal that will require LTE technology to be used for public safety mobile broadband networks used by first responders." The technology, commonly called 4G, is now being tested by emergency responders, technology companies and other groups for its interoperability capabilities. In Florida, for instance, Verizon Wireless has rolled out a $205 million 4G LTE wireless network in 14 markets.

Meanwhile, at the IEEE GLOBECOM Conference stakeholders in the technology, and emergency response fields held two full days of "industrial technical presentations committed to 4G wireless communications theories, smart grid strategies, aerospace power technologies, cyber security and emergency response," a press release read.

According to SlateTech the technology gives field responders the "access to vital information that will make them much more effective at their jobs - whether that's saving lives or protecting property or managing a natural disaster," according to Craig Orgeron, the state CIO and executive director of the Mississippi Department of Information Technology Services. Mississippi will have the country's first statewide public-safety network based on LTE technology. The state's network is being built by Motorola Solutions and will be completed by the fall of this year, SlateTech reported.

The FCC's decision last year to require the LTE technology upgrade was in part due "the overwhelming record support for LTE among public safety organizations and other stakeholders, and the importance of ensuring that all public safety broadband networks adopt a common air interface to establish an important building block for interoperability," Broadcast Engineering reported.
