Public Safety Communications Research Program Briefing April 2015 Dereck Orr, 1 Public Safety Communications Research Program Located at the Department of Commerce Boulder Labs in Colorado The PSCR Program is a joint effort between: NIST s Communications Technology Laboratory (CTL) and NTIA s Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) 2 PSCR Sponsors Department of Homeland Security s Office for Interoperability and Compatibility (DHS S&T OIC) Department of Homeland Security s Office of Emergency Communications (DHS NPPD OEC) First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) 3 PSCR Portfolio Requirements Priority, Preemption, Quality of Service Standards Direct Mode (Proximity Services) Modeling & Simulation Device-to-device modeling Research & Development Location Based Services Testing & Evaluation Indoor/In-building Security Research Mobile Application Security Local Control Deployables Push-to-talk over LTE Group Communications Video Standards Nationwide modeling Resiliency research and modeling Public Safety Analytics UI/UX Extended Range Next Generation Network (NGN) Wireless Priority Services (WPS) Priority, Preemption, Quality of Service Deployables Identity Management LTE Security Integration Local Control Audio Quality P25 CAP Bridging LMR to LTE 4 Requirements Gathering PSCR works with public safety associations/groups such as NPSTC, APCO, and the PSAC to help document public safety s unique communications requirements SAFECOM Statement of Requirements (SoR) 2007 NPSTC BBWG SoR 2009 NPSTC BBWG Task Force Report 2011 NPSTC Mission Critical Voice Requirements NPSTC BBWG SoR 2012 Launch Requirements Specific Requirements Documents QPP, Local Control, LTE Console, etc. Current Working Group Efforts: NPSTC: Priority/QoS, Local Control, LTE Deployable PSAC: Priority/Preemption Framework Task Team 5 FirstNet Standards Process FirstNet Public Safety Advisory Committee Current Standards Efforts: 3GPP: Proximity Services/ProSe (Direct Mode), Group Efficiency/Communications ATIS: Push-to-Talk Over LTE GSMA: Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) 6 Network Modeling, Simulation, and Performance Analysis Overview & Goals Drive the development and deployment of next-generation networks in support of public safety communications needs Provide the public safety community with the performance analysis tools needed to better understand emerging network technologies Impacts Assessment of various parameters on national networks deployment, technical challenges, and cost models Expedite the standardization, development, and deployment of new features to support public safety communication requirements Current Efforts Network Resiliency Studies Device to Device Modeling ProSe Modelling 7 Public Safety R&D Roadmapping Overview In November 2013 PSCR hosted a Workshop in order to highlight needs for public safety broadband research and development (R&D) over the next years Workshop Results can be found here: net/meetings/roadmap_workshop_112013/roadmap_work shop_ php Current Efforts ( ) Public Safety Location Based Services Publication in final review, to be published soon Public Safety Analytics Working group planning is underway 8 Advanced Communications Research Overview & Goals Create and maintain a vendor-neutral environment where public safety, industry, and other stakeholders can observe how new broadband technologies can meet public safety s requirements Drive technology based research/evaluation in support of public safety communications needs Current Efforts Indoor/In-building Extended Range Cell / High Power UE LTE Deployable and Relay Technology Local Control Technology Evaluation Priority, Pre-Emption, Quality of Service Next Generation Networks Priority Services ENB to EPC Security Gateway Evaluation IMS/VoLTE Integration Web RTC/Applications and Tools Development 9 Wireless Broadband Technology Demonstrator Overview: An enterprise-wide DHS initiative, led by S&T and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to identify potentially viable solutions to upgrade the Department s existing land mobile radio (LMR) systems with wireless broadband capabilities. Four Technical Topic Areas identified: Mission Critical Voice (MCV) over Broadband Video and Data to tactical user devices Remote Management Network Integration Current Efforts In Final stages of Phase 1 (lab based evaluation), next phase will be field trial deployments. Currently focused on OTAP/OTAR capability evaluation. 10 Cybersecurity Efforts Overview The security capabilities and features of a dedicated public safety nationwide, interoperable broadband network will be unique as compared to traditional commercial mobile carriers due to the requirements of public safety. Current Efforts Mobile Application Security efforts Participated in hack-a-thons to develop public safety mobile applications Limited mobile application vetting experiment Identity Management Provided a DRAFT NIST IR 8014 Considerations for Identity Management in Public Safety Mobile Networks Network Interface/Data Security Provided a NIST Special Publication (SP) : Guide to Security for Full Virtualization Technologies 11 Audio Quality Research VoLTE testing Overview PSCR has recently investigated some of the ways in which first responder audio quality is impacted by technology. Current Efforts PSCR recently released two papers which looked at the vocoder used in VoLTE, or Voice Over Long Term Evolution. PSCR identified 83 speech/audio codec modes and 54 noise conditions to be tested. Approximately 900,000 speech intelligibility estimates have been generated and are currently being analyzed. 12 Video Quality Overview Our goal is to develop recommendations for public safety practitioners Minimum requirements to meet their needs What is quality in public safety applications? MOS is not appropriate for public safety Video must be useful we have taken a task-based approach VQiPS Video Quality in Public Safety Current Efforts Examining potential LTE standards efforts related to video quality for public safety broadband applications 13 Thank you!
