Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson has launched its critical communications broadband portfolio for service providers, aimed at enabling them to meet the business-critical and mission-critical needs of industries and public safety agencies as digitalisation and modernisation of land mobile radio communications increases.

To meet critical communications users’ needs, Ericsson says it has developed a  new portfolio comprising three offerings: critical network capabilities; critical broadband applications; and flexible deployments, for both local private networks, and nationwide mission-critical LTE networks.

Ericsson says that when communication is disrupted by minutes, seconds, or even milliseconds, it can have huge consequences for business operations, or serious implications for public safety – and the need for fast and reliable communication is paramount.

According to Ericsson, there is a growing demand for business- and mission-critical broadband, and service providers need to deliver the highest level of availability, reliability and security to meet this demand

Per Narvinger, head of Product Area Networks, Ericsson, says: “We see growth opportunities for service providers and government operators by addressing new segments with LTE/5G networks. Our critical broadband portfolio will enable our customers to effectively secure the critical communication needs of sectors such as public safety, energy and utilities, transportation, and manufacturing.”

Ericsson says the critical network capabilities include new features that simplify the rollout of broadcasting services across nationwide areas. Another new feature enables radio access sites to operate in fallback mode, should the network connection fail – and the offering also includes deployable systems that allow temporary coverage for disaster recovery and operations in rural areas without existing coverage.

Thomas Lynch, executive director at IHS Markit, says: “The critical communications industry is developing ways to deliver critical mobile broadband solutions for professional users, augmenting today’s critical voice communications. Through its new portfolio, Ericsson is empowering service providers to address this growing segment by leveraging their existing LTE infrastructure and operations in an affordable and scalable manner.”
