WORKSHOP: Critical communications standards supporting a multi-vendor and interoperable environment for all mission- and business-critical sectors
Hear how digital narrowband TETRA, DMR and P25 mission-critical wireless standards continue to dominate deployments globally and how the growth of broadband is firmly on the agenda of many organisations running mission-critical communications services. Learn how the industry continues to meet needs of government, public safety, transport, utilities, mining and resources, industrial and enterprise sectors with new solutions. Speakers provide useful insights and practical examples of progress and options for existing and mission critical 4G/5G 3GPP broadband and why mission-critical broadband standards are a vital foundation for how organisations will communicate and underpin industrial revolution and support smart cities.
