While keeping up with its promises related to enhancement of networks for public safety made last year, Verizon recently announced that its public safety-private core would generally become available on March 29. This dedicated private core is the focal point of expanded services and products designed to improve Verizon’s 4G/LTE network that will work towards public safety. Apart from this, Verizon provides preemptive access for public safety customers as well as mobile broadband priority (MBP) service without any charges.
Verizon’s public safety-private core renders many significant features to public safety customers, including improved security, preemption and priority, traffic segmentation as well as enhanced service control and management. Since, it is linked to Radio Access Network (RAN) of Verizon, so it utilizes different spectrum in numerous bands like 800 MHz Cellular, 700 MHz, 1.7/2.1 GHz AWS and 1.9 GHz PCS bands.
The public safety core isolates, the public safety mobile users’ data traffic from that of commercial users across its 4G/LTE network. Further, the users of Public safety network will get their data instantly considered as public safety along with prioritized access at the cell phone tower as well as across the wireless network.
Because of MBP, public safety users will get priority service with regard to data transmissions. Additionally, Verizon would allow the public safety customers to access preemption services to keep them communicating when they require it urgently.
Also, due to preemption, Verizon will be able to autonomously reallocate network resources from its commercial Internet/data users to first responders in case of an unfavorable event when the capacity of network reaches to maximum. Moreover, the company will provide both preemption and MBP service without any extra cost for public safety customers.
