European Study to Examine Commercial Networks for Public Safety (7/1/13)
Monday, July 01, 2013 | Comments

The European Commission announced a call for tenders for a study focused on the role that commercial mobile networks and the economies of scale for commercial equipment, including handheld devices for end users, can currently play and in the future will play in ensuring the provision of "mission-critical" high-speed broadband communications.

The call for tenders for the study on the use of commercial mobile networks and equipment for mission-critical high-speed broadband communications in specific sectors will close 30 August.

The study is focused on the following sectors in Europe: public safety and protection, civil protection and disaster relief (PPDR); utilities for intelligent energy management systems and smart energy grids; and transport for intelligent transport safety and transport management systems.

The study will provide an in-depth analysis of shared use of commercial mobile networks for the provision of broadband communications services in sectors with special requirements. The study should focus on the feasibility of using commercial mobile networks to satisfy communications needs of PPDR, smart grids and railways. Those sectors are subject to a number of operational, functional and safety-related requirements. The viability of sharing options such as site sharing, network sharing and advanced spectrum sharing schemes can be explored in detail for each sector.

The official Journal reference is 2013/S 122-208386.
