HASHTAGS

Critical Communications World (CCW 2024) takes place from May 14-16 in Dubai, and we look forward to seeing you there!  

As a trusted partner and technology leader, Ericsson provides innovative mission-critical networks and solutions enabling operators and partners to offer high-performing, resilient and secure connectivity to government, public safety and critical infrastructure organizations 

Mission-critical networks are designed to deliver, whatever the situation. Through the latest developments in 3GPP, organizations can deploy new and advanced communication capabilities, utilizing greater data speeds and lower latency to enhance situational awareness and collaboration during times of need. 

As your technology partner, Ericsson is here to help you evolve from where you are now to where you need to be, and beyond by creating new opportunities to bring powerful modern technologies to mission critical users. 

On display at CCW 2024

Introducing Ultra Compact Core (UCC), a solution that enables additional connectivity in emergency situations using a temporary deployable network during natural disasters or for the public’s protection.

Showcasing Ericsson’s latest air-ground-air network solution that enables extended coverage to airspace with predictable and reliable connectivity for flying drones, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and helicopters to support rescue operation or critical infrastructure inspection. 

FET smart ambulances use case demonstrating the potential of differentiated connectivity utilizing 5G SA and slicing for better emergency medical services, enhancing quality and efficiency between ambulance staff and remote medical experts for fast and precise treatment.

Ericsson Security Manager (ESM) is a 5G cybersecurity platform that focuses on operational security to enhance cyber-resilience in telecom networks. The automated solution provides visibility, analytics, orchestration and governance to fully achieve zero-trust architecture (ZTA).

An innovative 5G NTN solution based on 3GPP as a complementary service to terrestrial networks, directly connecting 5G-enabled devices via satellite, enabling a continuity service for users moving from covered areas into uncovered areas.

Together with our partners Zaphiro, we showcase an innovative power grid monitoring solution that uses low-latency 5G to reduce the threat of wildfire by de-energizing a falling power line before it hits the ground and causes a fire, potentially saving lives and property.

Emergency services rely on Cradlepoint and its cellular intelligence to build a reliable, secure network for sites, vehicles, IoT devices, and remote employeesThe demo includes mixed cellular network availability, NetCloud Manager and Security solutions.

Sneak peek into our demos at the booth in 2023

Demo – 5G-enabled mission critical collaboration

Demo – Mission critical mobile broadband over band 68

Demo – Security Automation Center

Through multiple use cases and a specific network evolution story, we provide concrete examples of how our mission critical solutions can support various verticals, from the government and public safety sector to rail and utility industries, in realizing more efficient and effective operations. 

In a 5G -powered virtual control room application, which aggregates mission-critical voice and live video/data feed into one single virtual interface, we showcase how public safety agencies can set up control rooms in a much shorter time. The solution also allows employees from different government agencies to log in from different locations. 

This demo presents the extended coverage for mission critical use cases in the skies. It is based on the results of Ericsson and Teracom in Sweden collaboration and trials on air-ground-air connectivity and showcases the customer-satisfying results of tests performed at different altitudes and different velocities.

An immersive demo within a physical table model simulates a security operations center. It shows the implementation of Ericsson Security Manager, an intelligent security management solution that would improve the security posture and lower monitoring, engineering, and incident management costs.

Failover Use-Cases are becoming a regular ask, failover is required in most things we do especially on the connectivity front, keeping our services up and always running. While failover has always been seen as an additional WAN link with huge costs and limited ways of using it for innovation and testing. Cellular Failover has become a game changer for agencies now that digital transformation requires connectivity to always be up and running to support their mission every minute of the day. Cradlepoint cellular routers, managed by NetCloud, not only set up failover with a cellular SIM card at a fraction of the price of wired WAN, but also enable additional network management requirements such as out of Band Management and LAN Manager. Visit us and see how we deal with Failover and Failback and more.

Mission-critical mobile broadband services will be demonstrated over a live network on band 68 spectrum reserved specifically for Public Protection and Disaster Relief in Europe. This live demo has been made possible through collaboration with device, chipset and application vendors. This demonstrates that the end-to-end ecosystem for PPDR band 68 (also known as "700 MHz") is now in place, and that governments and operators can now deploy an additional connectivity layer. This layer, often combined with prioritized access to operator spectrum, offers more resilient mission-critical broadband connectivity to first responders in Europe. Learn more from the NEWS.
