To provide the public safety community with a better understanding of what to expect from new and emerging networking technologies, and accelerate the standardization and utilization of such technologies.
Advances in broadband wireless technologies developed by standard developing organizations (SDOs) such as 3GPP and IEEE 802 offer unprecedented capabilities that have the potential to improve the effectiveness of first responders. Our efforts are aimed at evaluating how well emerging solutions meet current public safety needs, and what improvements if any are needed to meet future needs.
We provide the public safety community with the performance analysis tools needed to better understand emerging network technologies. Our efforts facilitate:
