The article focuses on whether the selection of the long term evolution (LTE) standard will deliver nationwide interoperability in the U.S. It details why public safety needs both LTE network and application level interoperability. It mentions the need to address priority access of users and applications by interoperability standards. It cites the impacts of various video frame sized, conveyed in Common International Format (CIF), on the ability to discern visual information.
