The Nordic public safety network operators have published a joint specification of requirements for broadband devices. The white paper includes requirements and guidelines on important device features. The paper was written for device manufacturers and intended to be considered when defining the future generation of handheld devices.
The broadband Virve 2 services will soon upgrade the communications of the authorities and other security operators into the new millennium. The services are currently being tested, and the deployment is about to begin as a collaborative effort – now on a new schedule that supports customer migration.
Drones and NTN satellite connections offer many kinds of benefits both for the authorities and citizens. This second Mission Critical Top Tech Trends review for 2022 by Erillisverkot discusses their current use and future possibilities
The new broadband Virve service for public safety operators is being built carefully and in stages. “We have made excellent progress, as a large part of the work has already been done. The situation could be compared to a building that already has foundations, walls and a roof – at this stage it already looks like a house,” says Ari Toivonen, Development Manager at Erillisverkot.
The first Top Tech Trends survey of Erillisverkot concentrates in particular on the future technology opportunities of the authorities and security operators. In the autumn 2021 survey, the focus is on convergence of technologies, 5G, cloud technologies and artificial intelligence and satellites.
Press Release, London and Helsinki, 2 June 2021 – OneWeb, the global communications network powered from Space, invited representatives from across the Finnish Government agencies to observe a demonstration of OneWeb’s Global Connectivity service for the first time. Run in partnership with Finland’s state-run security network provider, Erillisverkot Group, the event demonstrated how OneWeb’s constellation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites is suited to supporting the operational requirements of multiple government agencies in the High North and Arctic Circle.
Finnish authorities’ communications will gradually move towards the broadband and mobile era in the 2020s. The next generation broadband Virve service is an entity coming together like a jigsaw puzzle in collaboration with its users. How is the project coming along?
An important milestone was reached in the Virve 2.0 project on February 18th, 2021. This is when it became possible to test the connection between the core systems provided by Ericsson, and the radio access network provided by Elisa.
Erillisverkot Group and Airbus Secure Land Communications (SLC) have entered into a renewed Virve maintenance agreement until 2025. The agreement is a continuation of previous maintenance agreements and covers switching and base station technology as well as application maintenance and support services.
