Chinese telco Huawei presented its enterprise LTE (eLTE) broadband trunking solution at the Critical Communications World (CCW) 2014, held at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, from May 20 to 22.
The 4G-based eLTE technology is apparently the first global broadband trunking network which integrates voice trunking, video and data transmission, and multiple-network applications into a single, converged wireless broadband infrastructure. As such, it provides an ideal shared broadband network for multiple enterprises to exercise control and create synergy in managing communications.
A broad portfolio of eLTE services such as broadband trunking, video surveillance, eLTE quick deployment broadband trunking system, and eLTE interoperation with Huawei’s telepresence system, were exhibited at Huawei’s booth.
To date, Huawei’s eLTE solutions have been deployed by various organisations and government agencies to deliver mission-critical communications in areas such as public safety, metro systems, ports and airports.
eLTE delivers smooth mission-critical communication
Huawei’s eLTE solution aims to significantly improve overall control and collaboration efficiency, enabling first responders to protect human life and assets and minimise losses.
Based on 4G mobile broadband, eLTE meets mission-critical requirements through multimedia command and control centers, professional trunking services, and fast response capabilities.
Key features of this technology include:
- Visible command – Voice and video dispatching, full support for broadband trunking, and video surveillance and conferencing through fully converged terminals over a single network
- High-definition video data – Real-time image upload, data collection, key facility status monitoring, full support for 1080p HD video, and 100 and 50 Mbit/s for DL/UL
- High performance mobile broadband – Enables high-speed mobile communications (430km/h) and long-distance coverage (100km)
- Single person “carry-on” backpack solution (eLTE rapid) – Saves time by enabling 10-minute rapid deployment
Norman Frisch, Director of Marketing, Enterprise Wireless Solution Sales of Huawei, sharing a customer case study on the Nanjing Smart City Municipal Network in China explained that the existing Wi-Fi, WiMAX, 3G public network, Tetra and other communication systems could not fulfill Nanjing government’s network requirements in terms of performance, reliability, bandwidth, and scalability.
As a solution, Huawei’s eLTE core network, eLTE base stations and terminals were deployed. Its eLTE network covers the city’s emergency communications, enabling a visible and efficient command system. A unified information platform has also been developed to improve the efficiency of inter-sectoral collaboration to ensure the smooth execution of the Asian Youth Council, Youth Olympic Games and other major events.
