Public safety operations benefit from consistent and reliable wireless services to help improve emergency response and drive operational efficiencies. Ensuring the broadest reach of an LTE cell site offering a Band 14 signal demands excellent service from the cell site and the deployment of high-performance user equipment (UE) in the field. One of the notable features of Band 14 is the support for High Power User Equipment (HPUE). New approaches to boost the return signal from distant UEs offer an opportunity to extend the cell coverage area.
This paper explores why HPUE is a valuable tool that helps expand public safety communications coverage while boosting network reliability.
