With growing pressure from high-stakes terror incidents and natural disasters, today's missions are becoming more complex for governments. In crisis and emergency situations, timely access to reliable information is a major success factor for modern public safety operations. New mobile broadband networks can put high-speed cloud-based data applications in the hands of emergency responders to address incidents faster and more effectively.
Many nations are working to update their mission-critical communications systems to incorporate high-speed mobile broadband data capabilities and take advantage of the benefits. While some nations have moved to deploy dedicated mission-critical LTE networks using Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) spectrum, many are looking at the benefits and options of embracing Mobile Network Operator (MNO) capabilities.
