Mission Critical Services: Pushing the LTE Limits to Save Lives

22 May 2017

 

Ofinno Technologies, LLC, a wireless communications technologies company, announced today the release of their Mission Critical Services whitepaper.

Mission Critical Services (MSC) ensure the reliability of wireless communications services used for public safety by first responders such as police, firefighters, and medical emergency personnel.  Mission critical services include mission critical push to talk (MCPTT) services, mission critical data (MCData) services, and mission critical video (MCVideo) services.  The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has developed a series of technical specifications to standardize mission critical services.

Ofinno’s whitepaper provides an overview of the mission critical services (MCS) and 3GPP standardization of MCS in LTE and its evolution in the 5th generation (5G) wireless networks.

“Standardization of mission critical services is ongoing in 3GPP. This standardization will translate to increased safety of the public and first responders as the next generation of cellular communications is made available. ” said Alireza Babaei, senior technical staff at Ofinno. “These new services are being implemented to ensure that first responders to mission critical situations can successfully communicate with each other.”

First responders often arrive to an emergency to find that their cellular devices won’t work due to network failures and obstructions.  These new technologies enable wireless devices to locate and communicate with each other when there is no network connectivity.

“Our research and development team implements the next generation of technologies for mobile communications which position us at the forefront of 5G developments. This whitepaper describes the future of mobile broadband,” added Esmael Dinan, President and CEO of Ofinno.

When compared to previous generations of cellular communications systems, newly developed mission critical services employ device to device discovery and communications.  By enabling wireless devices to talk to each other, the reliability of mission critical services is greatly improved.

“Ofinno never stops innovating. We believe our 5G technologies are so innovative that we want the world to know about them even before they are published by patent offices around the world. We are committed to helping the communication industry by openly publishing our patent applications,” said David Grossman, VP of Intellectual Property.

Ofinno employs a team of well-educated, experienced scientists and engineers to handle the entire design process, from concept to completion. The company’s intellectual property provides enterprises with the tools necessary to provide the latest technologies to their end users. Ofinno’s global patent portfolio includes over three hundred patents and patent applications.
