To provide seamless data communication during emergencies, public saety practitionersendorse 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology as the oundation or new wirelessnetworks. LTE oers nationwide interoperability in the 700 MHz band, and it cansupport key broadband applications that accelerate response times, improve situationalawareness — and increase the saety o the public and all personnel. However, LTErequires a move to all-IP networks and presents some operational challenges, includingthe need to minimize costs in today’s difcult economic environment. This paper explainsoperational business models that public saety entities can use to manage LTE networksmore efciently and cost eectively. For organizations considering outsourcing, it exploreskey actors, such as unding requirements, operational costs, tolerance or shared control,and solution expertise.

1. Introduction
Public saety entities rely heavily on telecommunications networks to ensure the success o mission-critical operations. In North America, digital and analog Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks areused or mission-critical voice communications. These networks are oten shared across agencies,combining multiple disparate radio networks that are interconnected by a transport network. Thenetworks are dicult to manage and operate, because they oten link to a complex inrastructure basedon diverse technologies, vendors and domains. For most public saety emergency service personnel,telecommunications is not their core mission — which adds to the challenge o operating andmanaging these networks.Furthermore, LMR is a narrowband technology, which is good or voice and low bandwidth data services.But it simply cannot handle the advanced data applications that rontline ocers and rst respondersrequire. Wireless broadband is essential or delivering these applications, which may include videosurveillance, automated vehicle license plate recognition, biometric identication, mobile crimescene units, mobile incident command, geospatial inormation systems, medical telemetry andautomated vehicle location.To implement these broadband capabilities, public saety organizations in North America are considering4G LTE networks deployed as an overlay to existing LMR networks. This approach will supportbroadband data in the short term, and in the longer term, the networks can evolve to supportmission-critical voice.Because LTE is proposed or commercial 700 MHz spectrum deployments in North America, itsadoption or public saety deployments presents an unprecedented opportunity or mission-criticalcommunications to become interoperable across the United States. Public saety users and rstresponders will have access to critical communications services wherever they go, while leveragingcommon user equipment.To implement an LTE public saety network without disrupting existing day-to-day operations, publicsaety agencies must consider a number o key issues, including multivendor interoperability, networkreliability, scalability and interworking with existing LMR systems. A successul transormationinvolves the ollowing considerations:
The ollowing section describes operational business models that address these considerations.
