As mission-critical LTE becoming a reality, new Internet of Things advances bring the promise of increased emergency work safety, enhanced public safety operations and improved patient care. The topic is a big one at the March TCCA Critical Communications Europe (CC Europe) and BAPCO exhibition and conference. Here is my take on what visitors will gain from the event.
With the 2919 TCCA flagship critical communications conference held in Asia and timed for late June, the TCCA joined forces with the British Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (BAPCO) to produce a joint event on March 12 and 13 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, England. Here are our thoughts on why the CC Europe/BAPCO 2019 conference is important.
Sometimes, critical communications technology goes beyond voice and data transmissions. As a case in point, the broader context around where AI and data analytics can aid public safety is also an important topic. Here is my take on how Critical Communications MENA will tackle one of the most exciting tech trends in play today.
While the first 5G deployments are aimed at tackling fixed wireless connectivity to residences, the long game is with the smartphone. To that end, Qualcomm just launched a set of essential radio frontend modules that enable faster 5G smartphone time-to-market. What does this mean for mission-critical communications?
Making mission-critical mobile broadband networks a reality is a daunting challenge. Technically, financially and politically, the issues surrounding creation of ubiquitous national public safety data networks mean government agencies must think differently. This white paper reflects my views on why the MNO is an essential partner to these agencies.
