Nokia #1 vendor of 4G public safety technology: Current Analysis

By March 26th, 2016 AT 3:03 PM

Nokia has been identified as the No.1 vendor for the delivery of technologies “beyond 4G” by market intelligence provider Current Analysis in a study compiled of 100 service provider executives around the globe. The results cited public safety as a key priority for 4G application, with Nokia also seen globally as the leading vendor, by far, of 4G-based public safety technology.

The Current Analysis study reveals that Nokia is seen as a clear leader in the public safety space, being named number one by a wide margin.

“Given the costs involved, few public safety agencies will be able to fund the rollout of a robust communications network on their own; they will look to service providers for help in leveraging existing networks and network assets. It’s not surprising, then, that the rollout of public safety networks is uppermost in the minds of operators now. Where NFV and IoT will play a role in the development of public safety networks – offering new efficiencies, lower latency and the enhanced connectivity needed to ensure the highest level of situational awareness for emergency first responder teams – it’s also not surprising that Nokia is seen as a leader in this space, backed by a comprehensive ecosystem to meet their needs,” Peter Jarich, Vice President, Consumer and Infrastructure, Current Analysis said.

Nokia has worked with a variety of public safety agencies to deploy 4G LTE technology in support of applications such as real-time video communications between first responders and command centers, as well as vehicle tracking and broadband connections to allow teams to quickly and securely obtain and share detailed information in emergency situations. Nokia has a wealth of public safety experience, working with customers in the public safety space for 60 years. The company deployed 4G LTE technology for the New Jersey Public Safety broadband network, supporting the high security and high-quality demands of Pope Francis’ 2015 visit to Philadelphia.

Recently, Nokia announced that it will deploy a 5G-ready next generation network to deliver mission-critical smart city services for Nedaa, the Government of Dubai agency and Professional Communication Corporation.

Nokia’s commitment to public safety is underlined by its leadership in 4G LTE technology, which offers the high bandwidth and reliability required for mission-critical operations, coupled with its strong position in the market for Internet Protocol/Multi-protocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS), optical and packet microwave transport technologies essential for the data backbone that underlie radio access networks.

In collaboration with other industry leaders, the company also offers a rich variety of multimedia tools, devices and applications for first responders and other personnel.
