The Report has the Following Key Findings:
It's estimated that annual investments in public safety LTE infrastructure will surpass $800 Million by the end of 2017. The market - which includes base stations (eNBs), mobile core and transport network equipment - is further expected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 45% over the next three years.
By 2020, these infrastructure investments will be complemented by up to 3.8 Million LTE device shipments, ranging from smartphones and ruggedized handheld terminals to vehicular routers and IoT modules.
A number of dedicated public safety LTE networks are already operational across the globe, ranging from nationwide systems in the oil-rich GCC region to citywide networks in Spain, China, Pakistan, Laos and Kenya.
At present, more than 45% of all public safety LTE engagements - including in-service, planned, pilot, and demo networks - utilize spectrum in the 700 MHz range, primarily Bands 14 and 28.
Due to the unavailability of ProSe-capable chipsets and devices, several public safety stakeholders including the United Kingdom Home Office are considering the continued use of LMR terminals to support direct-mode operation, as they migrate to LTE networks.
The wider critical communications industry is continuing to consolidate with several prominent M&A deals such as Motorola Solutions' recent acquisition of carrier-integrated PTT-over-cellular platform provider Kodiak Networks, and Hytera Communications' takeover of the Sepura Group - a well known provider of TETRA, DMR, P25 and LTE systems.
