Parallel Wireless Public Safety LTE, a complete 3GPP-compliant LTE solution, is hardened for emergency services and tactical communications needs. It can be deployed in various tactical and multi-cast environments from police station coverage, to deployable and ad hoc scenarios. Deployed in 25+ trails around the globe, Parallel Wireless Public Safety LTE is a complete end-to-end solution. This solution enables resilient meshing in order to provide secure LTE communications consisting of voice, high throughput video, data, Push-to-Talks, MMS, and/or SMS for multiple users in daily operations or in emergency/tactical operations. The solution delivers reliable coverage (from urban to rural), local organizational control, and resilience with self-healing features and multi-homed mesh backhaul, and LTE backhaul (relay node) capabilities – all at a lower cost. As a result, public safety agencies now have the ability to do more with less budget. Whether Tetra, P25, or LMR, this solution also enables full interoperability between legacy networks and resilient LTE which allows agencies to upgrade their networks at their own pace and budget.
