The Market for mission critical communications is rapidly developing as developing technologies supply solutions necessary to meet emerging demand for improved voice, data, and machine-oriented communications. The public safety community increasingly rely upon IP-based solutions for first responder (ambulance, police, fire) and dispatch communications as well as overall coordination in the event of a disaster.
Industry verticals that manage critical infrastructure (such as utilities, ports, and transportation) also demand enhanced communications to safeguard assets and optimize operations. We see a few technologies playing a key role including 5G, Artificial Intelligence, and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. In addition, there is a strong opportunity for network and system integration as otherwise disparate solutions are converge in a manner in which operations management does not become onerous.
This research assesses core public safety technology and solutions as well as emerging key areas for critical communications including 5G, AI, and IoT. The report analyzes the ecosystem for each technology. The report also identifies market opportunities and the market outlook for critical communications with forecasts for 2018 to 2023.
