Verizon Wireless, Motorola Demonstrate LTE Public, Private Interoperability

in News, Motorola Solutions, Verizon Wireless, LTE

Motorola Solutions and Verizon Wireless are demonstrating interoperability across private LTE to public LTE at APCO 2011. A police patrol vehicle on display, outfitted with dynamic public safety applications, maintained its live data sessions while seamlessly switching between the Motorola Public Safety LTE network and the commercial Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.  

The Motorola and Verizon Wireless have formed alliance to enable first responders to realize connectivity to their services on both the Motorola Solutions Public Safety LTE network and the Verizon Wireless’ 3G/4G network.

The interoperability demonstration illustrates how LTE-enabled devices can automatically manage sessions for full connectivity between public safety’s Band 14 LTE spectrum and Verizon Wireless’ Band 13 LTE commercial spectrum. The demonstration uses the new Motorola VML700 vehicular modem for connectivity and application transparency whether operating on the Private LTE network, or when out of coverage on the Verizon network.

The applications featured on the vehicle include computer-aided dispatch, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) and live surveillance video.  Public safety applications are streamed from the police patrol vehicle to a remote, demonstration command center to show how multimedia information can be shared in real-time between dispatchers and responders on the scene.

In addition to expanded coverage, the Motorola and Verizon Wireless alliance delivers to public safety organizations management and control of their LTE devices, centralized provisioning, nationwide roaming and site sharing that leverages existing carrier sites for rapid and efficient deployment options.
