Expway Reveals the First Compact Mission Critical LTE Validation Network Integrating Push-to-Talk, MC-Video and MC-Data
Land and Private Mobile Radio operators and device makers can now easily create and demonstrate PS-LTE scenarios with the Expway eBox For Critical Communications
Dubai, Critical Communications World – November 8th, 2016 – Expway, the LTE-Broadcast expert revealed today the Expway eBox For Critical Communications, the first complete and compact mission critical LTE-Broadcast validation network in a box. The network integrates the latest multicast requirements being defined for the 3GPP-SA6 Release 14 standard. These requirements directly address performance necessities for MC-Video and MC-Data (Mission-Critical). Expway is the only vendor to deliver total end-to-end software for LTE-Broadcast, and is best positioned to deliver this new mission-critical broadband use-case.
Expway eBox For Critical Communications is designed for ruggedized device manufacturers looking to verify their products with a 3GPP compliant PS-LTE network. It is also designed for land and private mobile radio operators to evaluate and demonstrate their PS-LTE network services and use-cases.
“First responders need to take advantage of the latest technologies to improve their efficiency in mitigating, preventing and addressing emergency situations. Fast, rich and reliable communication is at the core of these requirements ” said Claude Seyrat, co-founder and CMO Expway. “Traditional legacy networks are limited in bandwidth, which prevents them from providing the mission-critical services public safety agencies and mobile radio network operators need”.
The Expway eBox For Critical Communications components are pre-integrated, and 3GPP standards based, reducing risks for Land and Private Mobile Radio operators and device manufacturers. Tier-one operators have deployed these carrier-grade components worldwide for commercial B2C uses. They include the Expway BMSC server, the Expway Provisioning Manager, a Radio Access Network (RAN), an Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and a client application with a Group Call Application Server. Expway participates in the 3GPP standard committee, and regularly updates its products as the standard evolves. The usage of Expway eBox For Critical Communications can help reduce the LMR/PMR to LTE migration by months, if not years.
