    Samsung’s new MCPTX solution brings video calls to first responders

    Today, April 6, Samsung demonstrated the world's first video call on AWS (Amazon Web Services) through its MCPTX (Mission Critical Push-to-Talk, Data and Video) solution at its lab in South Korea. The demo relied on Samsung's complete lineup of MCPTX solutions as well as the Galaxy XCover FieldPro. The rugged smartphone was released in the USA today via AT&T.

    The platform offers multimedia-based communications to first responders and public safety officials. Samsung's MCPTX solution can be deployed on the AWS cloud platform or the customers' on-premise servers. Through cloud solutions, particularly AWS, customers can benefit from extensive scalability, enabling network operators to offer reliable services even during the greatest capacity strains.

    Land Mobile Radio (LMR) technology is limited to traditional voice communications. In contrast, Samsung's MCPTX platform offers powerful data and video capabilities and allows hundreds of first responders to be connected at the same time and exchange files, images, videos, and more, during emergencies.

    Samsung claims that the technology will help improve situational awareness and information accuracy, especially in times when public safety plays a pivotal role against local disasters or urgent threats. All of this ensures an unprecedented level of reliability, coverage, and scalability. Samsung's MCPTX implementation is based on 3GPP Release 14 specifications. It's technically an upgraded version of MCPTT (Mission Critical Push-to-Talk), which was first demonstrated in 2015 and has been in use in Korea's Public Safety LTE network since 2018.
