Nokia Networks has expanded its LTE network in a box (NIB) solution by integrating the BeOn communications suite offered by its public safety partner Harris Corporation.
The compact, rapidly deployable LTE NIB now offers BeOn land mobile radio-like (LMR) applications, including push-to-talk, situational awareness, group messaging, location tracking and streaming video over the public safety broadband LTE network. Vital public safety communications can be implemented at rural emergency scenes and disaster areas without network coverage in minutes instead of days.
The partnership with Harris is an important component of Nokia’s strategy to create a superior broadband public safety ecosystem with companies that are experts in their fields. This allows Nokia to complement its industry-leading LTE solution with best-in-class solutions and public safety specific applications, and address the urgent needs of first responders for high bandwidth, reliable and secure communications.
