Research, develop and trial critical communication solutions for authorities and remote businesses

  • Program Type
  • Industry Focus
    Key stakeholders from the Finnish public safety community; research organizations, enterprises, user organizations, and a mobile operator.

PRIORITY is a major project that will research, develop and trial critical communication solutions for authorities and remote businesses. A key target will be to complement existing mission critical voice and messaging services with broadband data capability, using commercial 4G and 5G wireless networks.

Mission critical hybrid solution

Hybrid solutions offer a smooth transition towards mission critical broadband. Combining services for TETRA, TETRAPOL and 4G/5G, the hybrid model is flexible in fitting the needs of user organizations and offers optimization through gradual implementation.

New solutions and technologies for public safety communications

    The PRIORITY project has several expected outcomes, where the most significant outcomes are:
  • technical solutions to be further developed into products in near future
  • new and evolved ecosystems in the area of critical communication, resulting in growing international business for the participants and the next capability
  • level in safety authorities’ mission critical communication.

    • The objective of the project is to improve the competitiveness of Finnish ecosystem of critical communications and situational awareness solutions. Research topics will concentrate on four areas:
  • Broadband service in extremely remote locations
  • Quality of Service differentiation and provisioning for diverse needs
  • Communication security
  • Interworking of dedicated and commercial networks.

    • During its two year duration, the project will focus on three application scenarios:
  • Search and capture
  • Smart rural business
  • Emergency response.

  • The solutions will be trialed in live network deployments, by applying the 5G-Force platform and scenario-specific technology blocks.

    The project creates joint activities with many different actors in the field of critical communication. Project is part of Business Finland Digital Trust Finland program.
