The wide acceptance of commercial long term evolution (LTE) networks is driving the public-safety solution on their mobile broadband. Traditionally, public-safety organizations have relied on LMR systems, for critical voice communication needs. The inefficiency of traditional LMR systems in terms of data, image and video communication has spurred the demand of advance commercial mobile broadband standards such as LTE for the public safety.
Increasing incidence of public safety and security threat from both natural and man-made sources has forced security agencies to adopt more translucent and faster communication channel for critical applications, information, and human resources. The need for efficient dispatch, faster problem resolution, emergency communications, and automated incident reports has increased the market penetration of the public safety LTE & mobile broadband. The use of LTE and mobile broadband has facilitated instant information exchange such as photos, crucial messages, video and blueprints across systems and jurisdictions. Moreover, LTE and mobile broadband offers superior functionality in terms of prioritizing and quality of service. It provides full IP LTE architecture within mobile packet core environment for the safe and secure transmission of critical video and voice data with around 100Mbps downlink speed and 50mbps Uplink Speed per 20 MHZ channel.
Based on the product types, the global public safety LTE & mobile broadband market can be broadly classified as public safety infrastructure (including radio access network, evolved packet core, and mobile backhaul and transport), and public safety LTE devices (including private LTE and commercial LTE). Based on end users, the global public safety LTE & mobile broadband market can be segmented as smartphones and hand portable terminals, vehicle mount routers & terminals, tablets & notebook PCs, USB dongles and others. On the basis of application, the public safety LTE & mobile broadband the market can be broadly classified as video applications, mobile VPN access and security, remote database access, bulk multimedia/data transfers, situational awareness applications, GIS, AVLS and mapping, CAD (computer aided dispatching), telemetry and remote diagnostics, and PTT & voice over LTE.
The public safety LTE & mobile broadband technology has changed rapidly in last few years. The spur in the use of the commercial mobile broadband, owing to falling prices of 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi network services is expected to increase the growth of the public safety LTE & mobile broadband in commercial application during the forecast period.
North America was the largest market of the public safety LTE & mobile broadband in 2014. The market dominance of North America is attributed to the development of advanced public safety LTE & mobile broadband projects such as FirstNet. Asia-Pacific and Europe are the fastest growing regions for public safety LTE & mobile broadband market. South Korea's initiatives towards rollout public safety LTE is expected to increase the market of public safety LTE & mobile broadband market in Asia-Pacific. The European public safety LTE & mobile broadband market is also expected to take benefits from the rising adoption of security hardened MVNO service that uses commercial LTE networks for broadband access.
Some of the competitors in the public safety LTE & mobile broadband market are TATA Advanced Systems LTD., Sri Direct Technology (PACKETHOP), Northrop Grumman Corp, Nokia Siemens Networks, Netmotion Wireless Inc., Motorola Solutions Inc., Meshdynamics, Lockheed Martin Corp, Iridium Communications Inc., Ipwireless Inc., Intelsat, Inmarsat Plc., IBM Corp, Harris Corp, Firetide Inc., Ericsson, Eads NV, Cisco System Inc., Belair Networks Inc., AT&T Inc., and Alvarion Ltd.
