Among in-building communications applications, Public Safety Communications (PSC) posses a special role:

- PSC special needs require extended building coverage in the areas such tunnels, basements and other that may be in no interest to other groups of subscribers;
- In-building communications is also required to be integrated into the uniform class of channels to seamlessly extend first responder outdoor radio communications;
- Traditional in-building RF coverage extenders can be damaged even before first responders arrival; responders have to rely in a great degree on temporary network solutions (such as, for example, mesh structures).

Many P25 and TETRA networks were planned and deployed, providing the necessary outdoor coverage and capacity; at the same time, seamless coverage to the indoor environment was considered as a secondary requirement. Now, the availability of robust indoor coverage has become a significant competitive advantage for network operators.

Public Safety networks that cannot guarantee coverage in federal, state and local government agency facilities as well as primary private and public venues, have a severely limited value in READ MORE >
