Analysys Mason
Analyst firm Analysys Mason has a track record of successfully delivering to the public sector, including the emergency services, at both national and local/regional levels. The firm has also recently published a study, commissioned by the TETRA Association, which identifies the user trends and future demand placed on broadband applications within the public safety sector. According to one of the study’s authors, Janette Dobson, given the limitations in capacity of existing dedicated network to deliver mobile services, it is likely that a new generation of solutions will be required across Europe in the next five to 10 years. ‘There is increasing demand for access to information on the move,’ she says. ‘Public safety operations are becoming more information driven, requiring access to a broader range of wideband and broadband applications. These include high-quality imaging, uploading and downloading large data files, and
real-time video.’
