It was precisely 12 months ago that Samsung announced the launch of a new Public Safety LTE solution that would allow for efficient and cheap data and multimedia delivery. Samsung called the technology a “prime candidate” for powering next-gen public safety networks as it’s both upgradeable and extendable. Samsung has now announced that it’s going to deploy the initial PS-LTE network in Seoul, where the core equipment and main control center is located, and in the Gangwon province of South Korea in “early 2016.”

Samsung will be providing telecommunications infrastructure and devices for the Korean Public Safety network using its PS-LTE technology. It’s the first live PS-LTE network in the world that uses the 3GPP telecommunications standard, allowing for more effective communication by sharing more precise emergency information through real-time video streaming and high quality images. The company will gradually extend the coverage of this network in South Korea and it aims to provide nationwide PS-LTE coverage by 2017. Samsung is going to exhibit its PS-LTE solutions at the Exhibit Hall 2 Stand 2M10 during Mobile World Congress 2016 from February 22-25, 2016.
