Don’t be a Dinosaur; LMR to LTE Transitions

14:55 - 15:15

With public safety broadband systems being developed, vendors are vying for position for public safety LTE, but what is really up next? This session will explore the next steps, at a high level, for possible transitional issues of LMR-to-LTE, including hybrid solutions. Voice will always be priority for first responders, but what does LTE bring to enhance the current LMR systems?

This session will provide attendees examples of transitional deployments for first responders and control centres. The unique aspect of this session is that it is not vendor specific and will provide information of LMR-to-LTE vendor devices and deployments as case studies for end users to evaluate.

There are three learning objectives from this session:

1. Review of current LMR with LTE applications

2. LMR-to-LTE transitional applications

3. Current and future LTE only deployments
