Course Overview

Do you want to leverage the power of LTE to improve the effectiveness of Public Safety services? Join Public Safety bodies around the world who are looking to deploy networks using the LTE standard and replace aging infrastructure based on TETRA, PMR, and P25. With this worldwide interest, extended standardisation work has been undertaken to incorporate functionality that supports requirements unique to public safety users. This course covers the features that make LTE suitable for public safety use, enabling delegates to intelligently enter the debate and identify the right technology for every situation.

This programme will provide a solid grounding in LTE and LTE network architectures before moving to a description of the functions included from LTE Release 12 which provide the necessary enhancements for Direct Mode operations and reliable Group Calling. Also, all network node functions and requirements will be explained and presented with examples of signalling and typical-use scenarios.
