Expway, Softil Partner on 3GPP-Compliant Mission-Critical LTE Technology
Tuesday, May 15, 2018 | Comments

Long Term Evolution (LTE) Broadcast company Expway and mission-critical push-to-talk (MC PTT) enabler Softil integrated their technologies to bring to market a Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards-compliant mission-critical voice, data and video solution.

The new MCC over LTE solution will have applications in first responder networks offering key evolved multimedia broadcast multicast service (eMBMS)-based device features such as mobile broadcast, group communication, PTT, push to video, file delivery and emergency alerts when using off-the-shelf and ruggedized smartphones.

“Partnering with technology leaders enables Softil to provide its finest mission-critical solution to date,” said Sagi Subocki, Softil’s vice president, products and marketing. “With the addition of eMBMS support by Expway, Softil’s BEEHD advanced capabilities such as presence, video calling, video streaming, data sharing and location services can now be used in the most efficient way over mobile data networks, which is extremely important in high load scenarios.”

The new solution is built on Softil’s 3GPP standards-compliant BEEHD client framework and is enhanced with support for eMBMS capabilities via integration of Expway’s LTE broadcast middleware.

“3GPP Release 14 extended the functionality of mission-critical systems with support for mission-critical video,” said Claude Seyrat, co-founder and CMO at Expway. “Softil’s unparalleled video communication expertise and leadership position in the mission-critical communications client space makes it an ideal partner for integration of Expway’s eMBMS functionality. Delivering video over eMBMS greatly extends the operational capabilities of first responders, enables them to make more efficient use of network resources and to communicate better. With Softil, ExpWay is at the forefront in making this promising technology practical and available.”
