Harris and Nokia Siemens join public safety LTE demonstration network

Harris Corporation, an international communications and
information technology company, announced that its complete public safety LTE
solution is now operational within the 700 MHz public safety broadband
demonstration network.


The Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) program
provides manufacturers and first responders with a multi-vendor, neutral host
environment for interoperability and application testing for LTE (Long-Term
Evolution) technology and solutions.


Harris Corporation in partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks, the most experienced LTE supplier, provided 700
MHz LTE network infrastructure to the NIST (National Institute of Standards and
Technology) testing lab in Boulder, Colorado.


“By participating in this important program, we are
providing emergency responders with hands-on experience with our LTE solution,
so that they can actually see how the system meets their unique and varied
needs,” said George Helm, vice president, LTE Business, Harris Public
Safety and Professional Communications.


The complete Harris 700 MHz LTE solution for Public
Safety provides first responders with the capability to ensure voice, data and

of Service (QoS) controls, user authentication and air link encryption,
advanced load balancing and Self-Optimizing Network Management.
