Samsung and Telus have announced the successful deployment of the first next-gen Mission Critical Push-to-x (MCPTX) services in Canada, which will allow first responders to manage emergency situations with greater awareness.
Deployed over the Telus global network, this new MCPTX solution will be part of a mission-critical communications infrastructure that will provide Canada’s police, firefighters, and other public safety personnel enhanced multimedia communications using vital operational features such as interactive video, geofencing, and remote database access.
The MCPTX technology will also improve communications across a range of scenarios. For instance, to improve traffic control, MCPTX can enable traffic route maps for emergency vehicles to be transmitted to traffic lights, clearing the way to quickly reach a destination with “green lights” along the route.
“Telus is building on its long-standing association with Samsung to bring best-in-class technologies and connectivity that will help public safety organizations manage emergency situations with greater responsiveness thanks to mission-critical features that go well beyond legacy voice technologies,” said Marshall Berkin, Vice-president, Industry Solutions, Telus Business Solutions.
“Samsung has proven deployment experience with end-to-end solutions – from network infrastructure to devices, to lead the industry in this space,” said Stephen Wiktorski, Vice President and Head of Networks, Samsung Canada.
