Mission Critical Technologies 2018 launched its inaugural edition at ExCel Centre during London Tech Week. Where many industry events center around a narrow set of communications topics, MCT 2018 embraced a holistic approach that cut across the compelling emerging technologies of the day.
With the pace of technology change quickening, government officials entrusted with responsibility for public safety operations must navigate uncharted waters. KNect365's inaugural Mission Critical Technologies (MCT) conference and exhibition provides a rare opportunity to hear from public safety innovators and practitioners alike. This is our take on why the event is a must-do opportunity on the 2018 event calendar.
Control rooms serve a vital role in the central nervous system behind every public safety agency's operation. Technology serving the control room function is evolving at a rapid pace, but what does this mean for control room staff and the field they support? Here is my take on what Critical Communications World 2018 offers for attendees shaping the future of the control room.
What do airports, mines and oil platforms have in common? Private LTE networks are now emerging as important communications platforms for these challenging environments. Critical Communications World features a variety of exhibits and sessions that shed light on the future of industrial communication. Here is a rundown of what attendees can expect.
Transportation systems rely heavily on mission-critical communications systems to ensure safety and excellent customer experience. Critical Communications World features exhibitors and sessions spotlighting innovative approaches leveraging TETRA and LTE to advance the state-of-the-art in transportation systems. Here are some of the ones that stand out.
It is hard to find an acronym with more headline-grabbing power than IoT. The reason is clear, enterprises that successfully deploy IoT technology can transform operations. For organizations that implement mission-critical technology, the transformation can boost citizen safety, enhance situational awareness and reduce costs. Here is a look at how Critical Communications World 2018 is tackling the subject.
It is said a picture is worth a thousand words. Now, new critical communications applications are advancing to bring rich user interfaces to the aid of emergency services workers. Critical Communications World 2018 includes sessions and exhibits aimed at fostering a powerful application ecosystem. Here are some highlights.
While mission-critical push-to-talk over legacy TETRA and P25 networks remains the basis for emergency services command, control and communications, the cell phone network and its data services are an integral part of the picture. Several prominent operators around the world now offer services featuring mission-critical LTE capability based on recent standards advances. The network technology is ready, and it is time for operators around the world to go beyond consumer grade service offers.
The TCCA has created a new working group to foster cooperation with traditional LTE equipment suppliers. Will this move make a difference, or is it merely window dressing that avoids the larger issues impeding progress?
