Chicago LTE Video Pilot Final Lessons Learned and Test Report   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Executive Summary: "Chicago Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is a video pilot program funded initially by the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Office for Interoperability and Compatibility (OIC). [...] The pilot tested the viability and performance of using the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN) to transmit video to law enforcement vehicles--providing a proof of concept for CPD [Chicago Police Department] to deliver video to officers in order to enhance response and increase real-time situational awareness. [...] This report provides lessons learned and recommendations, characterizes the performance of the network, shares outcomes of test data analysis, and highlights recommendations and conclusions for OEMC [Office of Emergency Management & Communications] and CPD as they continue to expand Chicago LTE testing and scope. The test plan behind this report focused on three areas: objective perceptual video quality tests designed to measure the video quality when video is streamed in real-time over the LTE network; subjective test measurements to characterize the performance of applications under various test conditions; and network performance metrics to test the key performance indicators associated with the network. Overall, the report concludes that the NPSBN LTE network provides an unprecedented opportunity to increase the capacity to meet the needs and requirements of public safety with respect to video delivery."
