LTE4PMR Project Concludes with LTE Solution for Public Safety
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 | Comments

A demonstration of the LTE4PMR solution using realistic conditions took place in the national training center of the French gendarmerie national in Saint-Astier, near the city of Périgueux in southwestern France. The demonstration proved that police officers can transmit encrypted multimedia information through a new Long Term Evolution (LTE) system.

The research and development consortium LTE4PMR consisted of French telecommunications companies and universities: the Institut Mines-Télécom, a public institution in France, contributed to modeling and theoretical studies; Nokia helped establish the communications infrastructure; Sequans Communications supplied and integrated the LTE4PMR chipset and services; and Airbus contributed the device.

The project’s goal was to develop a mission-critical broadband solution that meets the demands of the public-safety sector. With a total budget of around €51 million (US$57.4 million), the project was partly funded by the French authorities through the French Banque Publique d’Investissement (BPI) and the French Programmes d’Investissement d’Avenir.

“Together with our partners, we progressed in developing the next-generation communication solutions for professionals,” said Eric Davalo, head of strategic development for secure land communications at Airbus. “France is at the forefront of the global quest for such solutions, which include multimedia information on top of secure voice communication.”
