In this Phase I proposal, Covia Labs proposes the development of a plan for a new standardized methodology and application
framework to ensure that future 700MHz LTE infrastructure and handsets meet the necessary requirements for mission critical
mobile voice. These requirements will be identified during discussions with regional public safety centers established to foster
collaboration among the public safety community. In parallel, research will be conducted into the current and planned state of the LTE
standards and implementations for direct applicability for critical voice services. The plan to meet the resulting detailed requirements
will leverage the extensive development of the Covia Connector software interoperability platform. Any devices, infrastructure and
applications built using this platform will benefit from its unified security, communications bridging, fault-tolerance, configuration
management, binary portability and unit testing models. This will ensure that equipment and infrastructure can be transitioned and
evolved into a system with a high degree of interoperability across all the necessary technologies and different vendors` software and
hardware well into the future. Appropriate LTE hardware for the Connector platform will be identified.
