Transforming Blue-Light Comms
ESN puts high-speed data on the front line for a safer world
The new GBP 1.2 billion Emergency Services Network (ESN) will transform critical communications for the emergency services in the UK.
The new GBP1.2 billion Emergency Services Network (ESN) will transform critical communications for the emergency services in the UK. Its pioneering design will use commercial cellular networks, replacing the TETRA-based Airwave network, and will provide voice and broadband data services for fast and reliable communication.
As part of the KBR delivery partner team selected by the Home Office to help deliver ESN, we are supporting the rigorous testing and trials programme to ensure this technically challenging new system is fit for purpose and meets all user requirements before the complex transition begins in 2019. This paper looks at what ESN means for our emergency services, how it will enable improvements in public and staff safety, and what organisations need to do to prepare for the migration.
