State of New Jersey LTE Public Safety Project
It's interesting to hear that the State of New Jersey just pulled its RFP to build a broadband LTE network for the Public Safety. My gut feelings are that the State realizes that you can't mix all the requirements of radio based LMR type services, device requirements and a full deployment of LTE. It needs to be in stages and my guess would be a new solicitation separating the LMR, LTE and device requirements. Make sense that you can build your LTE solution without the requirements of LMR or the devices and still get the network to support all those features in the future. Unless, of course, they do a Public-Private solution.
Words to Live By: “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” (Steve Jobs)
