Airwave to participate at Critical Communications Middle East 2014
Airwave, the leading provider of mission critical voice and data communications, has again been invited by the organisers to present and participate in a panel discussion at Critical Communications Middle East 2014 taking place at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai from 14 to 16 September 2014.
Airwave’s Mike McKone, Director – Middle East will present on the advantages of deploying a hybrid network which allows operators and customers to build capacity around requirements without a huge upfront investment in infrastructure. This approach also allows operators to learn and adapt whilst formulating an understanding in order to use the new technology to its full potential.
“I will give an overview of hybrid networks, and then use a case study to demonstrate how we deliver a seamless service by combining the benefits of Airwave’s Emergency Services Network with the broadband capacity of mobile network operators to deliver early benefits,” says Mike.
As well as presenting at the event, Airwave will have a stand presence (stand B6) to showcase some of the business’s more recent product launches and to share expertise and experiences with colleagues in the region.

Notes to Editors
Airwave delivers mission critical voice and data communications to organisations that provide vital public services – the police, fire and ambulance services, local authorities, health, utilities and transport providers.
Airwave has invested £1.4 billion to date to create the Airwave Network, which was purpose built to meet the needs of emergency services. The Network is totally secure, covers 99% of Great Britain’s landmass and is interoperable, meaning that for the first time members of different public service organisations can communicate with one another.
The Airwave Network is the first public service network in the world to offer secure, seamlessly integrated communications between emergency services and other emergency responders, and has made Great Britain a world leader in critical communication.
