Ericsson has joined the 450 MHz Alliance to support critical mobile communications networks for industries such as public safety and utilities that require secure and resilient wide-area coverage.
The 450MHz band addresses critical network users’ needs with a wider reach at a reasonable cost.
The 450MHz Alliance is an industry association that represents the interests of industries that recognize the potential of 450MHz spectrum. Its members include communications service providers and equipment manufacturers and companies representing multiple industries.
Manuel Ruiz, Head of Mission Critical Networks, Ericsson, says: ”Ericsson joining the 450MHz Alliance will further strengthen an ecosystem that spans customers, communications service providers and a diverse cross-section of chipset, module, device and infrastructure vendors.”
He adds: “We are strengthening our Ericsson Radio System portfolio with compact and lightweight advanced radio solutions to meet the long-term 450MHz needs of mission-critical users and applications.”
Ericsson has already achieved several successful 450MHz partnerships in Europe, particularly in Germany, Poland and Sweden.
