Joint Whitepaper Explores Increase in DMR Tier III Adoption for Mission Critical Communications

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 2 settembre 2018

Hytera, a leading provider of innovative Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) communications solutions, jointly announced the release of a new white paper entitled “DMR Trunked: Next Generation of LMR Technology” with IHS Markit, a global analysis firm specializing in the critical communications industry. The white paper outlines the steady growth and evolution path of DMR Tier III technology and provides a comprehensive analysis on its market demand and future adoption in vertical sectors such as Enterprise, Transportation, Utilities and Public Safety.
DMR Tier II conventional technology has traditionally been a business-critical technology, supplying communications for enterprise users. With the introduction of DMR Tier III trunking, the public safety and security markets are recognizing DMR as a viable technology for mission-critical applications. With a full complement of features designed with mission-critical users in mind, DMR Tier III trunking is gaining a global foothold in the Public Safety and security markets. By the year 2021, the Public Safety vertical is expected to account for nearly 35% of all DMR Tier III shipments worldwide. According to the white paper, a key driver in the adoption of DMR technology is the rapid worldwide migration to digital technology. Historically, LMR (licensed mobile radio) communications technologies utilized analog operation. However, today’s LMR market is advanced, forward-thinking and fast-paced, with innovative technologies, concepts, and integrations hitting the market regularly. Recent technology announced by leading players for DMR Tier II, NXDN and dPMR have incorporated equipment supporting communications on both analog and digital networks – thus facilitating this transition. DMR Tier III technology has benefited from the transformation, growing as a competitive protocol for the Public Safety sector and becoming a mainstream technology for Utilities, Transportation, and Enterprise industries worldwide. Convergence is anticipated to be the future of the critical communications industry. As more countries begin considering their roadmap to broadband LTE communications systems, hybrid solutions will form a large part of the transition economy. In short, LTE will complement critical voice with data, rather than replacing PMR altogether. With enhanced system design, security protection and encryption, DMR Tier III technology provide a clear evolution path to LTE migration in the form of a converged PMR + LTE solution, which will ultimately be required to make any LTE transition viable. A converged DMR and LTE solution includes a dual-mode radio which can connect to a cellular network in addition to the DMR network, which allows video uploading and video calls via the commercial network while connecting to the DMR network for mission and business-critical voice.

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 21 marzo 2018

SpaceXGovSat-1 is the first satellite of GovSat, a public private partnership between the Government of Luxembourg and the world-leading satellite operator SES. The satellite was launched into space on 31 January on board a flight-proven SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, and has since undergone extensive testing.
The multi-mission satellite is operated by GovSat from the Secure Mission Operations Centre in Luxembourg. The highly flexible and resilient GovSat-1 payload uses dedicated frequencies in X-band and military Ka-band. It enables an array of applications such as connectivity for theatres of operation, interconnection of institutional or defence sites, border control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), as well as various types of communications on the move for land and maritime missions. GovSat-1 is located at the 21.5 degrees East orbital slot, which allows it to support missions over Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, as well as providing extensive maritime coverage over the Mediterranean and Baltic seas, and the Atlantic and Indian oceans. Dedicated entirely to governmental and institutional users, GovSat-1 features high-powered fully-steerable spot beams, an X-band Global beam and a total of sixty-eight transponder equivalent units.
Étienne Schneider, Luxembourg Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Economy and Minister of Defence said: “I would like to thank all the members of the GovSat team for their hard work and commitment to bring the GovSat-1 spacecraft into operational service. This was the next major step in our public-private partnership with SES. GovSat-1 will further enhance Luxembourg’s excellent reputation in the global satellite communications market. The satellite will enable Luxembourg to meet its expanding obligations in European defence and to further diversify the national economy in a key technology sector.” “GovSat-1 is a real game-changer when it comes to providing secure satellite communications to governments and institutions. The satellite’s X-band capacity is the most powerful and flexible available,” said Patrick Biewer, Chief Executive Officer of GovSat. “GovSat-1, coupled with our Secure Mission Operations Centre, forms one of the most reliable, cost efficient and secure satellite communications capabilities on the market, and we are delighted to announce that it has entered into operational service.” GovSat-1 launch.
