WASHINGTON, December 29, 2009 – Government support of wireless technologies is going to result in wireless broadband providers getting more involved in coming up with public safety applications, according to analysis released Tuesday from Frost & Sullivan.

“Governments worldwide have clearly understood the role of advanced communication technologies after numerous unforeseen terrorist attacks and unanticipated natural disasters over the last decade revealed the loopholes in emergency communications. Consequently, many governments have eased their regulatory environments by lowering the barriers to entry for foreign companies and releasing dedicated spectrum for public safety,” found the researchers.

The report finds emerging wireless technologies such as WiMAX and LTE offer significant potential in the public safety communications realm. “IP-based communications is one of the most significant drivers of wireless broadband for public safety communications, as it solves one of the fundamental challenges faced in this segment – interoperability,” said Technical Insights Research Analyst Anirudh Srinivasan in a statement.

“Besides its ability to connect disparate radio systems and frequency bands, the IP platform also enables future technologies to be incorporated as and when required, without getting stuck with a single vendor or protocol.”

As countries clear their expect analogue television spectrum for mobile broadband use, “part of this spectrum is likely to be used for public safety communications in many of these countries on the same lines as in the United States,” according to the research.
