Mission Critical Communications Presented by: Ross Macindoe Head of Future Networks Date: 11th December 20013

About Airwave Airwave provides the world’s largest, fully operational, dedicated, mobile communications network for public safety professionals. Dedicated Service Catalyst for change Tried. Tested. Trusted.

Emergency services will always require mission critical communications 1 3 The emergency services address situations where human life and other values for society are at risk, especially when time is a vital factor.1 1 2 Every six minutes the emergency button is pressed in Great Britain. Today voice. In the future it will be voice and broadband data. Drawn from Law Enforcement Working Party (LEWP)

Events happen ever day

Events happen everywhere

Events can rapidly change

So what best defines mission critical communications? 1 2 3 Emergency button Fast call set-up. Very high availability and reliability In the future mission critical data will have a similar requirement. Everyday service driven by critical need and not just commercial priorities

So what is changing? 1 2 3 Growing availability of rich information is needed to drive front line decision making, supporting efficiency, effectiveness and transformation. Future data services will become increasingly mission critical as operational practices change to take advantage of information services. Future voice and data services will need to be on a single network to meet the affordability challenge.

So how could mission critical communication services be delivered in the future? 1 Commercial mobile communications services will standardise on LTE/4G technology. 3 2 Whilst the technology is reasonably certain. The services could potentially be delivered via a range of network topologies. Commercial only Dedicated only A blend of the above Mission critical communication services will undoubtedly follow that trend.

But public safety have specific service requirements 1 2 3 A commercial network is managed to provide services to high volume consumer and business markets. A dedicated network is likely to have affordability challenges. But a blend of both could meet the mission critical communication requirements at an affordable price

A dedicated service delivered by a hybrid network topology Combine this with a dedicated core to ensure mission critical QoS Enhanced coverage and resilience, where required, to ensure availability where and when you need it Leverage the extensive commercial networks coverage Dedicated LTE Dedicated & Commercial LTE Commercial LTE

Spectrum provides the emergency services with choice Sufficient Allocated and Harmonised Spectrum? YES GOGO GOCO Government Owned Government Owned Government Operated Company Operated Spectrum allocated Spectrum allocated COCO Company Owned Company Operated Spectrum allocated Mission Critical Operations possible NO COCO Company Owned Company Operated Spectrum from auction, Plus allocated spectrum MNO Mobile Network Operator Spectrum from auction – No conditions Commercially Prioritised Service

Spectrum provides the emergency services with choice 1 2 Prioritised? Prioritised? >20,000,000 customers vs 300,000 public safety users. Who and what decides when an escalating incident becomes a priority? 3 Harmonised and owned spectrum is the best answer to guarantee the high levels of service required by the public safety users

Industry standards will also be key 1 2 3 LTE hooks to provide mission critical group voice capability. Scalable and standardised mission critical voice application. LTE standards and spectrum to support direct mode operation and Ground Air Ground

But it’s not about the technology, it’s all about the service Supporting a dynamic response to unplanned events.

But it’s not about the technology, it’s all about the service Expertise that mirrors emergency services’ operational process for planned event management.

Emergency services will always require mission critical communications 1 2 3 Today it is voice. In the future it will be voice and broadband data. Dedicated service management and a blended network is the best option to deliver the future service. Spectrum will provide the bargaining chip. Transition needs to be seamless. The brave new world needs to be ready to accept the challenge.
