Public Safety Solutions
Mission-critical LTE Broadcast
The Expway for Critical Communications Solution is the only complete end-to-end, 3GPP standards-based LTE Broadcast (Long Term Evolution) for mission-critical communications applications. With Expway for Critical Communications, first responders can communicate and collaborate with each other, regardless of their location, to successfully address natural and man-made threats, and do their jobs more safely, securely and effectively.
How It Works
Expway for Critical Communications allows first responders in addition to voice communicating to individuals or large groups, to share real-time video streams, detailed maps and high-resolution photographs. Commanders can track their troops and vehicle locations accurately for faster and more precise critical decision-making and improved community safety.
Why LTE Broadcast
LTE Broadcast is widely regarded by communications experts and standardization bodies as a powerful technology that can benefit private and public safety agencies in numerous ways. It is an ultra-fast converged network, which boasts unprecedented high-bandwidth capabilities at lower operating costs. It leverages a rich open ecosystem from commercial networks and offers standardized protocols and greater interoperability which has been a long-standing issue with agencies using their own intra-agency private radio networks. It is also highly reliable and secure.
Rich Multimedia Communication
Mission-critical communications products bolstered with the Expway for Critical Communications solution can provide private and public response teams with unified communication services for fast and efficient Push-To-Talk (including group-talk), Push-To-Video and large file delivery. First responders can communicate to individuals and/or large groups at high speed and clear voice quality. Error free, high quality video transmissions can be initiated by any team member or devices and shared with other teams. Very large files can be sent instantly to numerous devices in high resolution, wherever and whenever they’re needed.
Efficient, Committed Bandwidth
The Expway for Critical Communications Solution allows private and public safety agencies to use strictly committed and prioritized bandwidth. Expway for Critical Communications enbles communication systems to transmit videos or data only once to the troops, instead of individually to each responder, making the solution extremely scalable, and resilient to congestion.
Broad Inter-Agency Interoperability
Expway for Critical Communications works with a large variety of LTE Broadcast enabled mobile devices, connecting more public safety individuals together. First responders can roam into other jurisdictions and still communicate instantly and easily. Is product components can be shared among multiple private and public safety agencies and managed by any service provider. Tactical bubble solutions can quickly be deployed to emergency sites anywhere, when needed.
Key Expway Products
The Expway BMSC broadcasts videos and data to multiple devices at once, with advanced Forward Error Correction (FEC) and File Repair. It also automatically collects usage data from the responders’ devices to insure consistent quality of service.
Broadcast services set-up and control are easily handled with the Expway BPM's easy-to-use interface and powerful management capabilities. It can control and orchestrate several BMSCs.
The Expway Middleware resides on the emergency responders’ hand-held devices. It is a necessary software component that enables ruggedized mobile devices to receive, and decode LTE Broadcast streams.
Expway eBox for Critical Communications (eBox CC) is used to evaluate the readiness and reliability of mission-critical communication systems over LTE and LTE Broadcast economically.
