Espoo, Finland - Nokia
has announced the formation of the Mission Critical Communications Alliance, a
global collaboration of mobile operators, national and local-level public
authorities and first response agencies to formalize standards in the use of
LTE for public safety, while enabling new ideas and partnerships to bolster
momentum in application of the technology in this area.

The Alliance will bring various stakeholders to a single platform with which
to inform and guide policy makers on the benefits of LTE-based public safety
solutions for the provision of high-quality and robust critical
communications services. More than 10 leading service providers and agencies
such as Mobile Radio Center from Japan and Vodafone Hutchison Australia are
participating in the Alliance programme.

4G LTE provides public safety services including first responders with
mission-critical features such as real-time high-definition video streaming,
remote data access and location-based services. Several countries are already
upgrading their public safety systems to leverage LTE technology, Nokia and
Korea's SK Telecom have recentlydemonstratedthe capabilities ofUltra Compact
Network, a portable small cell based LTE network that can provide 4G
connectivity for public safety and other mission- and business-critical
services in remote locations.

Having worked with the various Governments in the public safety field for over
60 years, we are happy to facilitate a broad group of stakeholders in the
global public safety community to drive the adoption of LTE in critical
communications. The Mission Critical Communications Alliance will work
towards realizing the unique benefits of LTE in public safety, enabling
national, regional and local authorities to provide a higher level of safety
and security for their citizens, while creating innovative new business
models for service providers. We look forward to welcoming other members to
the Alliance who are committed to using 4G technology to enhance the
effectiveness of mission-critical services."
