Research and Markets: Public Safety Spectrum Report - How to Meet the Broadband Needs of Public Safety Users?

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/87nn2g/public_safety) has announced the addition of the "Public Safety Spectrum - How to Meet the Broadband Needs of Public Safety Users?" report to their offering.

This study details existing spectrum allocation for public safety services. It presents the requirements for broadband services and the corresponding spectrum needs of public safety users. The use of commercial LTE networks by public safety users is analyzed and the mobile broadband strategies for PPDR players are evaluated.

Key Topics Covered:

1. Executive summary

  • Non-broadband PPDR spectrum allocations and services
  • Broadband PPDR spectrum
  • Frequency bands used for PPDR and future prospects
  • Use of commercial networks for PPDR
  • Potential strategies for players

2. Methodology & Definitions

3. Narrowband and wideband PPDR spectrum allocations and services

  • Existing PPDR spectrum is mostly in the 400 MHz band in Region 1
  • In the 400 MHz in Region 2 (Americas)
  • In the 400 or 800 MHz band in Regions 2 and 3 (Asia-Pacific, USA)
  • In the 700 and 800 MHz bands
  • In the 4.9 GHz band

4. Broadband PPDR spectrum

  • A complex landscape to deal with PPDR spectrum
  • Need for high-speed data and video
  • How will that dedicated spectrum be allocated?
  • ITU WRC-15: what is at stake?

5. Future frequency bands and prospects for PPDR

  • Options for future PPDR networks
  • PPDR in the 700 MHz band
  • Other bands for broadband PPDR

6. Could PPDR use commercial networks?

  • More stringent requirements for mission-critical services
  • PPDR over 2/3G
  • PPDR over LTE
  • Expected capabilities: PPDR over LTE-Advanced
  • Sharing capabilities

7. Mobile broadband strategies for PPDR players

  • Implementation timeline
  • Use a dedicated PPDR network
  • Use a commercial mobile broadband network
  • Strategies wrap-up

8. Annexes

  • Characteristics of non-broadband PPDR networks
  • PPDR spectrum use summary in the USA

9. Main references
