Samsung successfully demonstrates world’s first Public Safety LTE network


Last updated: June 6th, 2016 at 07:31 UTC+02:00

A few months ago Samsung announced that the new Public Safety LTE solution it created last year will be deployed in Seoul by early 2016. Samsung has announced that it has successfully demonstrated the reliability and usability of its Public Safety LTE solution during rigorous testing in Pyeongchang, Korea. The PS-LTE network has been developed as an advanced means of communication for emergency situations. This test was part of the Korean government’s official verification process for the first phase of a PS-LTE network project.

During the test, Samsung’s deployed PS-LTE network was used by 20 departments from eight fields, including the military, government, police, fire, and medical services. All of them responded to simulated emergencies in accordance with Standard Operating Procedure. Various PS-LTE communications were demonstrated, including instant messaging in emergency situations, voice/video Push-To-Talk (PTT) communication, video conferencing between field and command center as well as voice calling by multiple groups. The Korean government selected Samsung as the sole provider of PS-LTE end-to-end solutions. The government is now going to launch the network in four cities starting this month, and coverage will continue to be expanded until the PS-LTE network is available nationwide.
