Elbit will begin testing the WideBridge solution that integrates mission critical capabilities for US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology, the company announced today.

Demonstrations will include the WideBridge with FIPS certified BlackBerry BES10 secure workspace and Etherstack’s P.25 networks interoperability capabilities.

The solution was developed with the objective of delivering the advanced interoperable broadband communication services using FirstNet and commercial LTE networks suitable for federal, state and local public safety agencies nationwide.

WideBridge enables any-to-any secure, interoperable, multimedia services with seamless connectivity between various commercial broadband cellular networks, FirstNet LTE Band 14 and the existing P.25 Land Mobile Radio (LMR) infrastructure.

Mission critical services supported by WideBridge include Push-to-Talk (PTT), Push-to-View (PTV), voice and video conferencing, video streaming from agents and video sensors in the network, map activated multimedia services, situational awareness information dissemination (command & control), P.25 interoperability, and a revolutionary off-network “Direct Mode” broadband connectivity using self-forming ad-hoc mesh network for local mission teams.

DHS intends to use this solution for testing the new concept of accessing secure multimedia services for public safety users through LTE broadband network.  As of September 2014, WideBridgesystem tests have begun at the Public Safety Communications Research Lab in Boulder, Colorado. After successful demonstration, these tests will be followed by field-testing of the system in early 2015.
