Business Development Manager
Sohan Domingo comes with 14 years’ experience in designing, deploying and selling solutions to public safety agencies in countries such as Australia, Germany and Middle East. He is currently the software Product Manager at Tait responsible for Tait’s software strategy. He comes with deep public safety software knowledge such as in CAD (computer aided dispatching), mobility solutions for first responders, agency interoperability, MCPTT (mission-critical push-to-talk) and NG000. He has worked in various organisations such as Siemens, Intergraph, Motorola and Nokia. His understanding spans across end-to-end solution offering for critical industries in the field of LTE, software applications, mobility all the way to radio (P.25/ Tetra). His passion and interest is in bridging the technology gap between legacy voice systems and application interoperability in a mission-critical environment.

Voice interoperability, multibearer switching and application integration for mission-critical operations
In this session Sohan Domingo will present that the future of mission-critical networks will involve a combination of different bearer networks for voice communication between users in the field and control centre operators. A bearer combination of this sort needs a redundant and robust integrated backend infrastructure along with the front-end vehicle communication components to support voice interoperability between multiple bearers such as satellite, LMR, WiFi, Bluetooth and LTE. This will enable field personnel using applications such as PTT to communicate over cellular service or other available bearer networks using a concept called smart bearer switching when there is no LMR coverage. The presentation will also address how multibearer switching between networks using software-based edge computing algorithms provides enhanced communication services in a mission-critical and non-mission-critical environment, especially areas where there is no LMR or LTE coverage. Sohan’s presentation will also highlight the need of an application middleware solution to solve the issue of data Interoperability faced in various industries today, especially when industries implement applications from disparate vendors which do not integrate with each other. The presentation will also run through some of the latest implementation of applications in cloud that can be provided as SaaS to industries such as public safety, utilities, transportation, etc best approach to implement cloud vs edge computing. Sohan will also highlight the use of the data integration platform to solve critical issues faced in the industry especially around public safety today, for example, receiving and sharing location information of portable radios in field to external applications like CAD. In addition, the presentation will highlight how a simple application middleware can be developed into a smarter integration platform with artificial intelligence and machine learning.

WORKSHOP: Critical communications standards supporting a multivendor 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.
