The Case For Private Standard Technology Wireless Mission Critical Communications Networks Kathy Nelson, P.E., Ondas Networks
For several decades, critical infrastructure entities, such as oil and gas, utilities, rail, and first responders, among others, have relied on their own telecommunications networks. These privately owned, privately maintained networks have been used to manage day-to-day operations and to coordinate emergency services in times of crisis. Many of these networks need to be mission-critical and have used portions of the wireless spectrum that were either unavailable to other users or unwanted by other industries. Historically the FCC has made some narrowband spectrum available through spectrum coordinators to allow for a geographic reuse without interference. Increasingly these low data capacity networks are struggling to keep up with the new technology. Additionally, the use of private, uncrowded portions of the spectrum was employed because mission-critical tasks like providing power, producing and providing energy to the public, protecting citizens, and responding to disasters needed clear, reliable channels of communication to be effective.
