At present, the public safety industry is witnessing the adoption of LTE technologies, which is fuelled by a number of factors such as open standards, shared intellectual property and economic developments. The implementation of LTE networks is likely to considerably improve the public safety communication system. However, such innovations and modifications will possibly bring certain challenges for the industry.

The USA and the majority of the Middle East countries have already started operating private LTE networks. The global installed base of private public safety LTE base stations is likely to increase at a CAGR 80% during 2012-2017 and reach almost 80,000 by end-2017. The number of private public safety LTE subscribers worldwide is expected to be estimated at 1 million by the end of the forecast period.
