Nokia Networks is collaborating with Harris to expand its LTE network-in-a-box (NIB) solution by integrating it to Harris Corporation's BeOn communications suite. The compact, rapidly deployable LTE NIB now offers BeOn land mobile radio-like (LMR) applications, including push-to-talk, situational awareness, group messaging, location tracking and streaming video over the public safety broadband LTE network. 

May this year, Nokia Networks launched a compact, rapidly deployable LTE network in-a-box macro base station with an integrated core network, ready to operate on either FDD or TD-LTE bands, along with built-in ports for external IP connectivity for real-time communication services.

According to Nokia Network, the combined solution allows vital public safety communications to be implemented at rural emergency scenes and disaster areas without network coverage in minutes instead of days. The partnership with Harris is an important component that will allow Nokia to complement its LTE solution with best-in-class solutions and public safety specific applications, and address the urgent needs of first responders for high bandwidth, reliable and secure communications. 

Thorsten Robrecht, Vice President, Partner Business, Nokia Networks
By combining Harris’ mission-critical applications with Nokia Networks’ LTE solution, we create new and real value for our joint customers in the public safety community. This is at the heart of our partner ecosystem strategy. By extending our reach beyond the traditional telco industry, we can create exciting new opportunities and explore new business models together with our partners and customers.

Michelle Johnson, Director, Product Line Management, Harris Corporation
Harris and Nokia Networks’ combined solution makes powerful on-the-scene LTE communications a reality for first responders, even when they must operate in disaster areas or outside their broadband coverage footprint. This deployable solution enables secure, unified emergency communications anywhere, and our collaboration with Nokia Networks has made it possible.
