TECHNAVIO Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Public Safety LTE Market in US 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the public safety LTE market in US: General Dynamics Mission Systems, Harris, Motorola Solutions, and Raytheon.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alcatel-Lucent, Alvarion, Airbus Defense and Space, Airspan Networks, Aviat Networks, Aviat Networks, Cisco Systems, Ericsson, Firetide, Gilat, Huawei Technologies USA, Nokia Siemens Networks, West Safety Services, and ZTE.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increasing number of devices supporting LTE and LMR networks will be a key trend for market growth. A few years ago, most public safety devices had only LMR or PMR features. It was expected that LTE networks would take some time to gain traction in the public safety arena. In the commercial space, the use of LTE for public security is gaining momentum at a much faster pace. Commercial networks are being deployed across the world, and consumers are buying LTE-enabled devices. LTE is being used for the safety and security of crew related to onshore and offshore oil exploration in the US.”
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be growing public communication network operators and telecom vendors. 4G LTE is the next generation of wireless technology enabling mobile broadband services. It includes elements that are not present in 2G and 3G infrastructure, such as the mobility management entity, a serving gateway, and a packet data network gateway. Many leading public communication network operators and telecom vendors are collaborating to capitalize on next-generation mobile broadband networks that are based on 3GPP LTE/SAE standards.
Further, the report states that issues in cross-border security will be a challenge for the market. The communications network industry in the US is becoming susceptible to hacking threats due to applications such as spyware or malware in the system. The increased number of cyber security attacks has triggered tensions between countries due to accusations related to spying. This significantly dents the growth prospects of LTE systems worldwide. Growing concerns over the security of sensitive data have affected market growth. However, the need for LTE systems will increase, given their benefits.
