Partners Launch First Mission-Critical LTE Network

Nokia and Nordic Telecom launched what they are calling the world’s first Mission Critical Communication (MCC)-ready LTE network in the recently opened 410-430 MHz band. Because of Nokia’s mobile broadband solution, the Czech operator Nordic Telecom will be able to jumpstart public protection and disaster relief efforts with services only possible on mobile broadband networks.

 

LTE-based critical communications that enables real-time video and data services is the biggest need of disaster relief responders around the world. On top of the mission critical requirements, high security, high data rates, and low latency, the public safety community also requires wide area coverage, which is best supported by low frequency bands. With the recently opened 410-430 MHz band that can now serve as a dedicated spectrum for MCC/PPDR and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in Europe, accelerated LTE adoption for critical communications and mobile broadband applications is around the corner.
