Re: Ericsson & Motorola
Patrick

Motorola seems to have bogged down in this Bay Area first responder network. They got the BTOP grant award but now have to come to an agreement with FirstNet to use the 700MHz PS spectrum they need to actually deploy the network.

Ericsson & Motorola
I haven't looked at this segment in a long while but last time I looked at it the combo of Ericsson and Motorola looked mighty daunting for Alcatel-Lucent (and anyone else come to that).

Ha! Yeah, that worked great, didn't it.

Re: Any bets on when we'll see a nationwide LTE emergency net?
That too, and the fact the spectrum has been allocated ~6 years ago...

The main problem is still who will pay for the FirstNet network:

Only for the six months of the trial though, still not clear to me when this will move to an actual deployment. I'll have to follow up with the FirstNet people.

Re: Any bets on when we'll see a nationwide LTE emergency net?
Finally that nice Band 14 spectrum is being utilized! This is great news!

2015? 2020?

Realistically, LTE made the concept practical, so maybe it couldn't have got started much before 2010-11. Still, seems there are a lot of localized arguements to be hammered out before FirstNet really picks up steam.
