Cassidian, an EADS company, and Alcatel-Lucent teamed to launch “Evercor,” a product based on 4G LTE technology that enables video, data and other media designed to  improve the way the security professionals serve and protect their communities.
 
Evercor integrates Alcatel-Lucent’s 4G LTE mobile broadband with TETRA-based systems to form the first end-to-end integrated LTE 400 professional mobile radio (PMR) solution for the 380 MHz-470 MHz band, currently used by public-safety agencies and other essential services in many parts of the world. As a result, the partners say it will support such new broadband capabilities as real-time video to complement existing radio systems.

The Evercor solution uses Alcatel-Lucent’s eNodeB base stations, wireless packet core and backhaul solutions; and the Cassidian LTE 400 Remote Radio Head, terminals and applications. The LTE 400 eNodeB can be fitted into Cassidian’s new TB3S TETRA Base station. By using LTE technology, they say fewer base stations are required to cover a comparable geographic area, and communication is more reliable inside buildings and within built-up urban areas.

“By delivering high-speed 4G LTE mobile broadband services such as enhanced location information and transmission of medical records to ‘smart’ emergency response vehicles, handheld tablet devices and control center systems, teams will be equipped with the vital information they need to rapidly prepare for and respond to any incident,” the two say. “This can improve safety and security for both the public and workers and allow teams to more quickly identify locations and respond to incidents.”
