Nokia and Nordic Telecom have launched the world's first Mission Critical Communication (MCC)-ready LTE network in the recently opened up 410-430 MHz band.

As a result of Nokia's advanced and future-proof mobile broadband solution, the Czech operator Nordic Telecom will be able to jumpstart public protection and disaster relief efforts with innovative services only possible on mobile broadband networks.

LTE-based critical communications that enables real-time video and data services is the biggest need of disaster relief responders around the world. On top of the mission critical requirements, high security, high datarate and low latency, the public safety community also requires wide area coverage, which is best supported by low frequency bands.

With the recently opened 410-430 MHz band that can now serve as a dedicated spectrum for MCC/PPDR and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in Europe, accelerated LTE adoption for critical communications and mobile broadband applications is around the corner.

Nokia will deploy it's LTE radio network solution, IP network technology, Dense Wavelength Division Multiplex (DWDM) technology and will install Mission Critical Push to Talk (MCPPT) application solutions like Group Communication.

Jan Cornej, Investment Manager, Nordic Telecom
As a pioneer in this space, we are looking forward to proving to the market that modern and new generation MCC services can be provided on an LTE network.

Ales Vozenilek, Head for Czech Republic, Nokia
The superior capacity and throughput performance of LTE allows first responders to leverage applications, like video, to be better informed and act faster. Advanced prioritization mechanisms provide mission-critical grade service availability and security.
