Cubic, Alea Partner on Broadband Communications for Mission-Critical Operations
Monday, February 22, 2021 | Comments

Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions (CMPS) signed an agreement with Alea, a company specializing in mission-critical communications software, for the joint development of public-safety and tactical broadband solutions.

Solutions developed under the partnership will leverage the Third Generation Partnership Project’s (3GPP) mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) specifications for mission-critical communications over LTE.

Cubic's radio gateway solutions, including the Vocality RoIP and DTECH M3-SE-MFGW, are compatible with a wide range of dispatch and push-to-talk (PTT) mobile app vendors. The addition of Alea MCPTT extends this support to include MCPTT-compatible vendors, providing customers with the confidence that their gateway solution is compliant with international standards for mission-critical communications.

“Support for MCPTT is a crucial product milestone for Cubic's radio gateway products,” said Mike Barthlow, senior vice president and general manager of mission communications and computing, CMPS. “This exciting new partnership further enables us to provide standards-based critical communications solutions to our first responder, disaster relief and defense customers.”

PTT radios based on Project 25 (P25), TETRA, Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) and legacy analog technology are expected to be utilized for many years to come. However, there is an increased demand for a gateway solution that connects these radio technologies to cellular networks.

“Alea is excited to support the adoption of standards-based mission-critical solutions by the public safety community," said Alea CEO Giuseppe Merlino. “This new partnership confirms the quality of our solutions and is a source of pride for our company.”
