Mission Critical Networks

Enable 5G for business with Mission Critical Networks

Built on Ericsson’s leading 3GPP 4G and 5G technology, our mission critical networks and applications deliver next generation, high performing, resilient and secure mission critical mobile broadband communication services. Together with service providers, we empower digital transformation for Public Safety agencies and Critical Infrastructure industries.

Using our leading 3GPP LTE and 5G technology and critical broadband capabilities, we deliver mission critical mobile communication solutions to mobile service providers and other partners. This enables them to offer future-proof, highly secure, reliable and resilient cellular connectivity to government and public safety agencies such as first responders, as well as utilities and rail transport industries.

These solutions represent the latest mission-critical mobile networks, and are designed to complement or evolve existing national or regional Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks, providing comprehensive voice, data and video services.

This technology evolution is enabling a wider range of business models, delivering more cost-effective solutions – from dedicated LTE/5G networks to commercial mobile networks with specialist embedded mission-critical capabilities.
