Proposal Title: Creating a Pragmatic Plan to Deploy and Evolve an LTE Centric Mission Critical Mobile Voice System
Topic Number: H-SB011.1-003
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Public Safety Broadband Mobile Application for Mission Critical Voice
Organization: Covia Labs, Inc.
Address: 465 Fairchild Drive
Suite 130
Mountian View, CA 94043-2252  
Abstract: In this Phase I proposal, Covia Labs proposes the development of a plan for a new standardized methodology and application framework to ensure that future 700MHz LTE infrastructure and handsets meet the necessary requirements for mission critical mobile voice. These requirements will be identified during discussions with regional public safety centers established to foster collaboration among the public safety community. In parallel, research will be conducted into the current and planned state of the LTE standards and implementations for direct applicability for critical voice services. The plan to meet the resulting detailed requirements will leverage the extensive development of the Covia Connector software interoperability platform. Any devices, infrastructure and applications built using this platform will benefit from its unified security, communications bridging, fault-tolerance, configuration management, binary portability and unit testing models. This will ensure that equipment and infrastructure can be transitioned and evolved into a system with a high degree of interoperability across all the necessary technologies and different vendors` software and hardware well into the future. Appropriate LTE hardware for the Connector platform will be identified.
