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.
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.
Mobile network operators around the globe have an opportunity to go beyond consumer-grade services as more nations seek LTE-based mobile broadband critical communications services. But first, these operators must understand the end user. Here is my take on how Critical Communications World 2018 can help an operator get a handle on the needs of this unique customer base.
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.
