Tony Gray has worked in the mobile communications industry throughout most of his career of over 40 years to date. During this time he has held senior engineering, management and consulting posts throughout Europe, the Middle East and around the world. He has worked as a consultant on a wide variety of public safety and other critical communications-related projects globally, and has recently been appointed as CEO of TCCA, the global representative body for all those with an interest in the provision of wireless communication services in mission-critical or business-critical environments.
Previously he was engaged as Regional Business Director with P3 Group, a highly regarded global communications engineering and consulting services provider.
Prior to his appointment as CEO, Tony served as a board member and director of TCCA, and was founding chairman of TCCA’s Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG). TCCA is working with standards bodies including 3GPP and ETSI as well as other stakeholder groups worldwide to drive the development of common, global, mobile broadband technology standards and solutions for public safety and other critical communications users. TCCA is also engaged with global regulators to find appropriate and, as far as possible, harmonised spectrum in which future critical communications broadband networks can operate.
Wednesday 12 June: Noon-12.30pm
Developments and plans in critical communications standards. Where are we on mission-critical digital narrowband and broadband standards?
Insights into the latest work by TCCA, ETSI and 3GPP on mission-critical open standards and their importance in allowing users to augment and transition existing open standard digital narrowband standards (eg, TETRA, P25 and DMR) with broadband data and voice services towards ultimate goal of achieving secure mission-critical grade capabilities in 4G/5G and beyond.
