To meet growing demand for real-time data communications and streaming video from Public Safety and First Responder organizations, LTE-based public safety networks with high-speed mobile data must be deployed by such organizations all over the world. The multi-stakeholder nature of these deployments and the need for mission critical communications by first responders makes planning and building these networks particularly challenging.
As the RF network planning and optimization solution market leader with extensive knowledge and understanding of legacy critical communications systems, such as P25 and TETRA, as well as current and evolving LTE standards, InfoVista has significant experience in meeting the unique requirements and demands of First Responder organizations - and deploying public safety networks. InfoVista’s RF planning software, Planet, can easily integrate with existing systems and processes, while delivering outstanding simulation capabilities. It offers the perfect solution to ensure the reliability of critical voice and data communications services for First Responder organizations.
InfoVista has a strong commitment to ensuring that our network performance orchestration solutions are performing at their best for you. Customers who take advantage of our training, consulting and support services experience faster return on investment and more successful implementations by working together with our experts.
Public safety networks provide essential and reliable communications services to First Responder organizations. Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks, such as Project 25 and TETRA, have, until recently, been the first choice for First Responder organizations. But, with growing demand for real-time data communications and streaming video from First Responder organizations, LTE public safety networks that offer high-speed mobile data are now being deployed over the traditional network.
The RF Planning challenges for these networks are similar to those of traditional LTE mobile carriers, but with some unique additional requirements. For example, legacy P.25 or TETRA networks must interoperation with new LTE networks overlays for the foreseeable future. Similarly, there is a need to support capabilities such as push-to-talk services and broadcast “one-to-many” capabilities. These challenges require evolved RF planning software that can integrate with existing systems and processes, while delivering excellent modelling capabilities.
InfoVista has extensive knowledge and understanding of evolving LTE standards, as well as significant experience in meeting the unique requirements and demands of First Responder organizations and deploying Public Safety Networks.
As the industry leader in mobile network planning, testing and optimization software solutions, InfoVista’s solutions for public safety radio access network (RAN) can effectively coordinate every stage of any public safety network's lifecycle, from initial network design and modelling, all the way to testing, troubleshooting and optimizing deployed services, while ensuring that they meet planning and cost considerations.
InfoVista’s solutions include globally recognized products, such as Planet (formerly Mentum Planet) for wireless network planning, Ellipse (formerly Mentum Ellipse) for microwave backhaul. In addition, the range includes network testing and measurement products from InfoVista's TEMS portfolio, such as TEMS Investigation and TEMS Pocket.
Planet’s Metro Network Design package supports efficient planning and design of indoor coverage from outdoor systems by enabling 3D coverage predictions. By combining Planet’s outstanding network analysis and market-leading RF propagation models with InfoVista’s Geodata, different network scenarios with highly accurate coverage maps can easily be compared - and the most cost-efficient network solution can be selected.
Deep knowledge regarding the coverage, quality and end-to-end performance of Public Safety Networks is essential from the outset. With the industry’s leading mobile planning and optimization software solutions, InfoVista can help ensure network performance in all phases of a Public Safety Network.
Planet is a true, multi-radio access technology platform that supports planning across multiple technologies, such as LMR and LTE, in a single project. It offers realistic modeling of the network, including 3D support in Planet’s Metro Network Design package and evaluation of different LTE network scenarios.
Open integration with other systems extends the capabilities of InfoVista’s software suite for multiple users and multiple organizations, facilitating the collaborative planning and deployment of public safety networks. It provides the ability to manage design practices, propagation models and Geodata, as well as to define project settings throughout all phases of deployment.
InfoVista has created a specific training course program to ensure engineers using our products in the deployment of LTE Public Safety Networks are trained on LTE design processes and on the RAN Collaboration Hub.
InfoVista’s RF network planning solution and RF Design Collaboration Hub are used in the deployment of a public safety interoperable communication system for Project PTC-220 in the USA.
