At the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center from February 22-23, Alcatel-Lucent showcases Bell Labs’ innovations and solutions designed to help first responders in the field and demonstrates to public safety agencies how they can make the transition to mobile broadband technology.
The latest innovation from Alcatel-Lucent’s continuing focus and investment in public safety solutions is Bell Labs’ First Responder Video. In a crisis situation, first responders at the scene of an incident need the right information at the right time adapted to their situation. First Responder Video achieves this with a state-of-the-art user interface that combines video streams with text and images sent from a central or mobile command center. By design, standard tablets or smartphones used today by public safety agencies are limited to only a single video stream in full screen mode. First Responder Video overcomes this limitation with unique Bell Labs processing that compresses multiple video streams into the bandwidth normally taken by 1, delivering a mosaic of video feeds with full control over each one. First responders can also transmit live video from their situation. First Responder Video is operating system agnostic meaning it can work with devices from different manufacturers. This freedom of choice lowers the total cost of ownership for public safety agencies. You’ll experience First Responder Video live at IWCE.
Also on show at IWCE are several real-life applications and tangible innovations working in a live Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband environment. The cutting-edge Alcatel-Lucent Striker 1 mobile command vehicle provides Band 14 LTE for demonstrations using a variety of devices including tablets, video cameras and radios, allowing attendees to experience for themselves the benefits of mobile broadband communications.
LTE is the best mobile broadband technology to support innovations like these, with bandwidth, reliability and cost of ownership in its favor. Alcatel-Lucent is drawing on its experience as a leading supplier of LTE solutions to telecommunication service providers to help public safety agencies around the world plan their transition to LTE.
Meet us @ IWCE on booth 2068 and experience LTE live!
