Finnish critical communications
Thursday 13 June: 11.00am-12.30pm
The Finnish Critical Communications stream provides insight to world-leading transition from narrowband to broadband. However, the technology is just one important piece of the puzzle. Other key elements are the ways agencies work and utilise the possibilities provided by the technology and applications.
Participants will learn how stakeholders use narrowband and broadband critical communications solutions and cooperate, what the requirements are for supporting solutions and what is the way forward.
This stream is brought to you by Critical Communications Finland.
Critical Communication Finland (CCF) is a user and solution-driven coordination entity for building trust resulting success in cooperation. CCF was initiated by the national public safety network operator State Security Networks Group together with local industry to foster national and international cooperation across governmental and non-governmental stakeholders in critical communications. The presenters are looking forward to partnering with Australian entities to bring together mutual competence and experience.
