Deploy Private Wireless Broadband

Cisco Premium Mobile Broadband helps industries transition from legacy voice-only radio communication networks to comprehensive media- and application-serving networks of today. How? By making it easier to deploy a private, third or fourth generation (3G or 4G) Long-Term Evolution (LTE) broadband network. It is ideal for industries such as

  • Public safety and security
  • Defense
  • Oil and gas
  • Utilities
  • Mining
  • Transportation

Cisco Premium Mobile Broadband offers a host of benefits to enterprises running their own private 3G or 4G LTE networks, including:

Preparation for Future Communication Needs

Enterprises can migrate from legacy land mobile radio (LMR) systems to IP-based LTE with these technologies run by Cisco Premium Mobile Broadband:

  • High-quality media, such as video reporting
  • Internet of Things and machine-to-machine (M2M) technology
  • Push-to-talk applications
  • Other data intensive applications

Cisco Virtualized Architecture

The solution is founded on a virtualized packet core that helps enterprises scale capacity and introduce new services much faster and more cost-effectively.

Choice of Devices and Access Technologies

Premium Mobile Broadband solution supports general purpose smartphones and tablets as end user devices for communication. In conjunction with IPICS and Cisco Partner Client Apps, it can replace expensive, clunky P25 phones in emergency services.

Enterprises can use any access technology like Wi-Fi, Small Cell, and 3G and 4G devices to connect to the network. The solution can also interconnect to any service provider network for geographically distributed coverage.

Benefits by Industry

Public Safety and Security

Premium Mobile Broadband helps improve situational awareness, and shortens incident response time for first responders. In addition to push to talk, first responders can use comprehensive collaboration technologies, such as video calling and streaming video, to collaborate and assess emergency situations.


The Premium Mobile Broadband LTE network helps to enable machine autonomy in mines. For example, trucks can hold the solution’s LTE-capable router, which connects to the LTE access network for application control and monitoring. This provides a more stable and reliable network and helps to ensure that autonomous haul trucks are always connected and operating at full capacity.


The solution can consolidate services like generation operations, transmission, and M2M applications ( such as smart metering). Moreover, to facilitate emergency intervention in case of disaster, the whole solution (Small Cells, LTE core, and application) can be collapsed as a complete system.


Premium Mobile Broadband reduces safety risk and provides a better customer experience in spite of service provider communication failures. Personnel can use smartphones or tablets to access public-safety information, law-enforcement databases, maps, and hazardous materials databases.

Speed and Simplicity

Enterprises can deploy Cisco Premium Mobile Broadband for use cases ranging from tactical LTE for site dedicated coverage to large scale dedicated LTE networks. The solution uses a flat IP architecture that helps to enable higher data rates, while reducing latency, complexity, and failures.
