The SALUS consortium is the winner of the 2016 International Critical Communications Awards in the category “Best Evolution to Future Broadband”.
SALUS – Security And InteroperabiLity in Next Generation PPDR CommUnication InfrastructureS – is a project with the goal of designing, implementing and evaluating a next-generation communication network concept for PPDR agencies, supported by network operators and industry, which will provide security, privacy, seamless mobility, QoS and reliability support for mission-critical PMR voice and broadband data services.
The Critical Voice and Data Protocol (CVDP) has been developed by Rohill as an interim solution to provide PMR-like voice, status, text and location messaging, as well as photo and video transport services enabled by broadband communications. The TeamLink application can already benefit from QCI improvements and multicast support in upcoming LTE core and base station releases, but will also support the first phase of Mission Critical Push to Talk (MCPTT) that will be part of the global 3GPP Release 13 standard. While the TeamLink server and client software supports both CVDP and MCPTT, the solution is fully compliant to 3GPP standards, but also allowing operation over 3G and LTE networks that do not support GSCE and MCPTT yet.
The ICCA judges praised the project for the significant impact it will have on the evolution of the future technology specifications and the work it has done to quantify user demands and priorities, adding that it fulfils a key requirement.
The annual International Critical Communications Awards are organised by TETRA Today and Land Mobile. The 2016 Awards were presented during a ceremony held in the prestigious Honourable Artillery Company in London, on Friday 26th February.
