New LMR + LTE E-Book Available
Tuesday, April 10, 2018 | Comments
The industry is in the midst of sweeping changes as it moves to an entirely new technology, Long Term Evolution (LTE). How the evolution will play out remains to be seen, but most industry insiders believe current narrowband voice systems will continue to be used for many years ahead.

To that end, there likely won’t be one giant leap from LMR technology to LTE systems. The transition will be in small steps during many years, and numerous issues will need to be addressed now and in the future. This e-book gathers the most pressing challenges and benefits of the evolution in one resource.

You will find an update on where the LTE standards process is in adding mission-critical features to the standard, originally developed for commercial networks, along with the latest on a way to interwork LMR with LTE technology. The standards process has made great strides in recent months.

The issues most affecting users are outlined throughout this e-book. Users will have to address the difference in coverage between the technologies, along with security, policy, dispatch integration and new interoperability challenges. All the old LMR problems and benefits are still before us, but LTE brings its own set of obstacles and positives. The articles in this e-book attempt to offer solutions to some problems, highlighting the best path forward or at least offering various suggestions.

Looking forward, articles in the e-book tackle mission-critical push to talk (MCPTT), video, robots, direct mode, cognitive communications and testing — all items facing our industry in a new LTE world.

Thank you to our sponsors who make this resource possible. We hope our readers find the information helpful, and we welcome your feedback.
