Innovative Narrowband & Broadband Convergent Communication Solution



Narrowband & Broadband Evolution Trend

Widely used in public safety and utilities industries, narrowband network communications devices are necessary for emergency communication. In addition to voice scheduling, users require additional services such as video surveillance, remote data collection, and multimedia broadcast. In other words, users want to not only hear each other but also see each other clearly.

With development of commercial LTE technology, its most significant attributes such as low latency and high bandwidth have brought great changes to the way we communicate. LTE technology has now been brought into the field of private communications. Its capability of transferring large volumes of big data and videos helps us to see the world more clearly.

3GPP approved the standard for mission-critical PTT (MCPTT) over LTE in Release 13. Considering issues such as the customers' actual demands, progress in standardization, and frequency approval, however, it is a natural choice for now and for the foreseeable future to carry the mission-critical voice service on the narrowband private network and carry the large volume of data, and non-mission-critical voice service on the LTE network. A platform integrating the narrowband private network, commercial LTE network and private LTE network is the best solution for today's market.

Evolution Trend

  • Narrowband terminal → Narrow-broadband integrated smart terminal
  • Narrowband system → Narrow-broadband integrated multimedia system
  • Voice service → Multimedia service
  • Smooth upgrade and evolution to protect your existing investments

Narrowband & Broadband Evolution Trend

Relying on the integration of the narrowband and broadband network, the Hytera convergent solution achieves voice, data, and image transmission through multi-mode smart terminals. This solution helps users facilitate collaboration across public and private networks. Accordingly, users can enjoy instant dispatching and a seamless connection in mission-critical communication.

Integration of the narrowband and broadband network

Public Safety Solution

Challenges

Although the PMR system has been widely deployed in public safety, the police mobile system still faces the following challenges.

  • Image transmission from point to point only
  • Low-speed data and image transmission in narrowband system

With the introduction of wireless broadband, new technologies such as video analysis, image recognition, and big data, can be more easily integrated into the command and control system, facilitating proactive monitoring and a rapid response.

Fast Deployment Solution

 

Challenges

The existing communication system may fail to work in the following special scenarios: public safety events, mobile security, disaster rescue, and field operations. In this case, an emergency communication system needs to be rapidly deployed in the field. Responding personnel and the dispatch center can use the system to transmit voice, data, and videos for multimedia command and scheduling.

Port Solution

Challenges

With rapid development of global trade and continuous growth of port business, the port information system upgrade is imperative. The port usually covers a large area, involves various services and coexistence of multiple communication networks, and requires highly collaborative work. Today, the port service industry faces the following challenges:

  • Poor coverage for key areas such as gantry crane, container yard etc, due to serious signal blockage and disorder
  • Increasing demand for large bandwidth, which is required for container trunk positioning andTOS data transmission and cannot be provided by the existing narrowband network
  • Poor coverage for offshore tugboat
  • Tide, which makes it inappropriate to lay optical fiber between the control center and the port
  • The worker has to carry two devices, TOS handset and radio, which increases the worker's burden and operation complexity
