Chicago LTE Video Pilot Final Lessons Learned and Test Report


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). For the effort, OIC partnered with Purdue University’s visual analytics center of excellence and OIC public safety partners: the Chicago Office of Emergency Management & Communications (OEMC) and the Chicago Police Department (CPD). 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 to deliver video to officers in order to enhance response and increase real-time situational awareness. OEMC and CPD installed one LTE cell in Chicago’s District 7 and outfitted approximately 15 officer vehicles. Public Safety Information Technology (IT) Officers were used for this early test effort.
