Bittium Deploys ENENSYS eMBMS Technology in Smartphone
Wednesday, May 06, 2020 | Comments

Rugged device maker Bittium and ENENSYS Technologies, a provider of public-safety solutions, announced that evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Solution (eMBMS) with ENENSYS’ middleware, which is intended for public authority LTE networks, can now be deployed in the Bittium Tough Mobile 2 smartphone. With this cooperation, LTE broadcast features are now enabled in the rugged public-safety Bittium Tough Mobile 2.

LTE broadcast has become an essential aspect of communications as technological advances affect the quantity and quality of information to be distributed to in-the-field officers. The eMBMS solution enables efficient use of LTE radio spectrum, delivering huge amounts of data even in a congested network environment, and every device receives the data at the exact same time. This is particularly important in public safety, security and other mission-critical communications, which require fast data speeds, low latencies and reliable connections.

Security and reliability are key elements for public-safety officers, and Bittium has been working with ENENSYS for several years, using its eMBMS solutions in Bittium Tough Mobile devices in public-safety projects.

“During this complicated time, in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, public-safety forces are required to monitor the streets to make sure that people are respecting government restrictions in regard to movement and regrouping,” said Bartolo Scanavino, ENENSYS telecom market director. “In certain areas, police are using video surveillance from drones and consuming a high volume of LTE resources. With Bittium Tough Mobile 2, these officers would have the possibility of using eMBMS — a crucial feature to ensure that the video streams are available to all agents in the city — without struggling with the limited spectrum availability on their private network.”
