Ericsson Demos MCPTT Offering in Paris
Thursday, December 28, 2017 | Comments

Ericsson demonstrated its mission-critical push to talk (MCPTT) solution at Milipol 2017, a homeland security exhibition held in Paris.

The solution is part of Ericsson’s mission-critical Long Term Evolution (LTE) and 5G portfolio called Group Radio, which enables mobile network operators and partners to target public safety and private enterprise and a variety of deployment models from private networks to commercial mobile networks.

MCPTT functionality is included in Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards. Ericsson said it is now able to offer these services to customers as requested.

“As a trusted partner to operators and governments around the world, Ericsson helps identify communication needs and deploy solutions before disasters unfold,” said Peter Gundersen, senior product manager, MCPTT services. “Our technologies ensure mobile network services can be prioritized in critical times. We connect public, transport and other city-based communications with emergency services and homeland security agencies.”

Next-generation PTT is a key component of emerging LTE-based public-safety agency solutions. This technology will complement the mission-critical capabilities provided by LMR networks that agencies depend on and expand those networks to a larger number of users carrying smartphones and other devices.

Would you be able to clarify what capabilities of the PTT have been demonstrated and supported and which version of the 3GPP has been implemented for the demo? Are there any plans for public-safety Prose and/or 3GPP V2X?
