Cassidian and Alcatel-Lucent announce 4G LTE to professional mobile radio

Telecom Lead Europe: EADS company Cassidian and
Alcatel-Lucent announce 4G LTE mobile broadband to professional mobile radio in
the 400 MHz band.

The New Evercor solution integrates LTE mobile data
capabilities with professional mobile radio enabling real-time video,
collaboration and data services that improve operations and safety.

Evercor will assist network operators in public safety,
transport and energy to save money by optimizing existing assets while
providing a path to LTE.

Based on 4G LTE technology, it enables the use of video,
data and other media to improve the way the security professionals serve and
protect their communities.

Evercor integrates Alcatel-Lucent’s 4G LTE mobile
broadband with TETRA-based systems to form the first end-to-end integrated LTE
400 professional mobile radio (PMR) solution for the 380-470 MHz band.

Alcatel-Lucent and Cassidian are showing how Evercor
enhances information-sharing between control centers and field operations at
TETRA World Congress 2012 in Dubai.

By delivering 4G LTE mobile broadband services such as
enhanced location information and transmission of medical records to smart
emergency response vehicles, handheld tablet devices and control center
systems, teams will be equipped with the vital information to respond to any

The launch of this innovative solution comes only a year
since we announced the joint work program between Alcatel-Lucent and Cassidian
and shows the real progress we’ve made to enhance operations for companies
using the 400 MHz band,” said Jean Marc Nasr, head of Secure Communication
Solutions at Cassidian.

Alcatel-Lucent’s 4G LTE architecture is being embraced
by the public safety sector. Evercor delivers the highest speeds and greatest
capacity for mobile broadband communications networks today and supports
essential operations in the most cost-effective manner,” said Philippe Keryer,
president of Alcatel-Lucent’s Networks Group.

The Evercor solution uses Alcatel-Lucent’s eNodeB base
stations, wireless packet core and backhaul solutions, and Cassidian LTE 400
Remote Radio Head, terminals and applications.

The LTE 400 eNodeB can be fitted into Cassidian’s new
TB3S TETRA Base station. Working in the 400 MHz bands delivers advantages over
communications in a higher frequency band. Fewer base stations are required to
provide coverage to a comparable geographic area and communication is made more
reliable inside buildings and within built up urban areas.
