Motorola Clears LTE Interoperability Hurdle

Motorola today announced that it is the first vendor to complete the first part of Phase 3 testing that is being conducted by the Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) program at the U.S. Department's laboratories in Boulder, Colo. The testing is being performed to demonstrate public-safety broadband network interoperability.

Specifically, Motorola and Ericsson — companies that entered into an alliance in September 2010 to develop an LTE-based public-safety broadband communications solution — collaborated to demonstrate interoperability of the solution's radio access network (RAN) and evolved packet core (EPC) with three major network vendors.
