What do we mean when we talk about LTE as a smart phone user?
Fast content downloads, video calls, mobile shopping, numerous apps and all of those amazing, data-rich features that most of us take for granted.
What about mission critical professionals?
The majority of them still rely on two-way radios and PMR networks to get their job done day-in-and-day-out. The PMR voice call is available, instant communication when needed. However, data capacity and live video is a hard-to-get luxury from PMR networks.
It is good that data services from commercial LTE carriers can support the data requirements for daily routine scenarios. But it's a totally different picture if you want to swap your private PMR network with LTE service.
So why not unify the narrowband PMR and broadband LTE networks?
