Introduction of P-LTE Mission Critical services to serve mission-critical industries
Hytera Communications launched P-LTE Mission Critical Services (MCS) service at the Mobile World Conference 2019 (MWC 2019) held in Barcelona, Spain. The Hytera P-LTE MCS platform which complies with LTE and MCS standards would help many critical industries, such as public safety, rail transit, dock and port, airport, energy, mining, forests and factories with voice and video services, high-traffic data transmission, and multimedia dispatch.
At the Mobile World Conference, Hytera revealed to the audience multiple trunking services, such as MCPTT calls, video uploading, and distribution, video conference, and dynamic grouping Additionally, Hytera released an MCS app (MCC) and broadband radios. End-users can access the P-LTE MCS system either via their smartphones or Hytera broadband radios to access trunking services. The MCS system integrates information data to the smart application and adopts various technologies to enable the system to adapt better to the environment, speed up handling and dispatch, and flexible deployment
Two ways to install the P-LTE MCS system
Hytera states that the P-LTE MCS system can be installed in two ways, first is the private LTE network, where its IoPS functionality ensures service continuity when the link between the base station and the eTC is broken. The parallel transmission of bulky amount of videos is possible as the system uses advanced Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) protocol, which optimizes the utilization of network resources and the service experience of users.
Second is the public LTE network. This facilitates flexible deployment, shortens construction time, and lowers the cost. It can also use private LTE network base stations to complement where public network coverage is insufficient in order to provide customers comprehensive trunking services
The architecture of the P-LTE MCS system
The P-LTE MCS system is built on distributed architecture and modular design and comprises of trunking terminals, base stations, evolved Trunking Core network (eTC), MCS trunking servers, and network management and dispatch application. In MCPTT interoperability tests organized by the ETSI, Hytera P-LTE MCS system is approved to be capable of interconnecting with other systems from 12 manufacturers.
The P-LTE MCS system gives prominence to high QoS, low latency, backup, and redundancy to better secure data and its transmission. Additionally, it supports handover among narrowband systems, private LTE networks, and public LTE networks.
Hytera’s technical capability in the broadband network
The launch of the P-LTE MCS solution has shown Hytera’s technology capability in private broadband network. The solution has made innovations in many aspects, such as broadband trunking, multimode convergence, and smart command.. In this way, Hytera architects a private network that can help customers worldwide which helps it achieve the impossible in the industry.
