Telstra collaborates with Ericsson for transformation program called "Network of the Future"

Telstra collaborates with Ericsson for transformation program called

"Work has commenced to transform our network to increase its value to businesses as they shift IT into the cloud, improve productivity and efficiency with mobility, store and process business critical data in the cloud, and apply machine learning to solve complex challenges, while ensuring regional Australians enjoy the same experience as those in our major cities", he said. The technology is viewed as complementary to existing, highly secure and available mission critical LMR services and can cost-effectively extend assured PTT service to a greater number of users via mobile devices.

According to Wright, when combined with Telstra's existing LTE coverage, the network will have the ability to support near real time applications in logistics, utilities, medicine, transport, mining, agriculture, manufacturing and many others.

The network deployment is a collaboration between not only Telstra and Ericsson, but also device providers Sierra Wireless, Altair and Bosch.

"While mission-critical LMR systems will continue to provide the critical means of front-line communication for many years to come, this new 3GPP-based technology provides an excellent way of extending the reach of LMR networks to many more technology users, regardless of whether they communicate with a smartphone, hardened device, or a desktop computer", Motorola Solutions executive vice president of Products and Services Bruce Brda said.

Mike Wright, Telstra's Group Managing Director of Networks said "We are committed to delivering our customers the best mobile network in Australia, this includes the highest quality and most reliable media experiences".

"We will push the technology frontier and always ask ourselves how we can make our customers more successful", Borje Ekholm at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017). "Starting with the nationwide optical network, to advancing mobile networks with 5G radio trials, and progressing the shift to cloud network functionality and enabling new specialized workloads; together we are putting the network fundamentals in place for Telstra's Network of the Future program", Romero said.

Telstra's LTE Broadcast capability allows PTT group calls to be delivered simultaneously to all members of a group call with high assurance, low latency and separated from regular mobile. When LTE-B is applied to the service, the highest quality and audio experience for broadcast will be achieved. To prepare the network for evolution to 5G, the companies will implement key technology enhancements included in 3GPP Release 13 and beyond.
