New York, NY, November 29, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Considering its thriving ecosystem, spectrum flexibility and performance metrics, public safety organizations worldwide recognize LTE as the de-facto standard for mission critical mobile broadband communications.
With spectrum already allocated, public safety agencies in the Middle East and the U.S have already begun to operate private LTE networks, while several others are utilizing services from commercial LTE carriers. Signals and Systems (SNS) Telecom estimates that public safety LTE device shipments will account for nearly 1 Million device shipments by the end of 2017. At the same time as many as 10% of these devices will also support integrated LMR (Land Mobile Radio) capabilities, to enable voice services over LMR systems such as TETRA and P25.
The “Public Safety LTE & Mobile Broadband Market: 2012 – 2017” report from SNS Telecom presents an in-depth assessment of the global public safety LTE market, besides considering the wider LMR and mobile broadband industries. In addition to covering the business case, the challenges, spectrum allocation strategies, the industry‘s roadmap, deployment case studies, vendor strategies, and the application ecosystem for public safety LTE, the report also presents comprehensive forecasts for mobile broadband, LMR and public safety LTE subscriptions from 2011 till 2017.Also covered are public safety LTE service revenues as well as device and infrastructure (eNodeB base stations) shipment and associated revenue forecasts.
The report comes with an associated XLS datasheet covering quantitative data from all figures presented within the report, as well as a list and associated details of 26 global private public safety LTE network deployments (as of November 2012).
The report covers the following topics
· Business case for public safety LTE and mobile broadband services
· Key benefits of public safety LTE and mobile broadband
· Challenges to public safety LTE adoption
· Agency, carrier and vendor commitments to public safety LTE
· List of public safety LTE commitments worldwide
· Public safety LTE deployment case studies
· The industry roadmap for the public safety mobile broadband in general and the LTE market in particular
· Public safety LTE deployment and funding models
· Spectrum allocation for public safety LTE
· Public safety LTE applications ecosystem
· Public safety LTE vendor assessment and strategies
· Subscriptions, operating service revenue, unit shipment and revenue forecasts for (private and commercial) public safety LTE, mobile broadband (WiMAX, WCDMA, HSPA, EV-DO) and LMR (TETRA, TEDs, P25, Tetrapol, dPMR, PDT, Analogue Radio) user devices and infrastructure, globally and by region
