Mission-critical broadband: a deep dive into the S-MVNO model

12:45 - 13:15

To enhance the situational awareness and operational efficiency of their first responders, a growing number of countries are looking at mission-critical broadband to complement their narrowband networks. As the market develops, we can see several different ways to achieve this transformation, from fully dedicated networks to Secure Mobile Virtual Network Operator (S-MVNO) model or even using commercial networks.

This presentation will focus on the S-MVNO model. This is rapidly gaining traction in the market, but is often seen as a disruptive model compared to how countries operate their legacy narrowband networks.

This presentation will answer some essential questions:

·         What are the different elements of S-MVNO model?

·         How can we guarantee mission-critical communications over commercial networks?

·         How do we deal with prioritisation or ensure interoperability with existing public safety and mission-critical networks?
