Hytera Mobilfunk (HMF) has tested a multi-cell, mission-critical LTE network in real operation for the Hungarian Public Safety Network
The central 700 MHz LTE test system was set up in the city centre of Budapest and consists of an LTE core, an MCx application server (MCS) and two SmartOne dispatchers. In addition, a baseband unit (BBU) and a remote radio unit (RRU) were installed at each of three other locations. The testers used Hytera PTC760 multi-mode advanced radios, PNC550 PoC devices and VM780 body cams.
The field test with Pro-M focused primarily on functional testing. The user is currently evaluating LTE as a successor technology for their latest network. In addition, the HMF team also conducted a drive test to take a close look at the quality of the radio coverage, the network capacity and the overall performance of the network. “Everything worked well, as expected, and we are very satisfied with the test results,” said system engineer Mario Fenz, drawing a positive conclusion after the test phase.
HMF’s professional LTE system provide mission-critical broadband services for voice, video and data. The company performs its test and development work at the new HMF Innovation Lab in Bad Münder.
