Join us for Critical Communications World, 19 – 21 May, Fira Gran Via, Barcelona
LTE is rapidly being considered by public safety organisations worldwide as an important solution for mission critical mobile broadband communications. Momentum is gathering around LTE for public safety thanks to its thriving ecosystem, spectrum flexibility and performance metrics, particularly in the Middle East and US.
However, the transition to LTE is one of the most complex technical challenges the public safety communications industry faces today and there is much to discuss and resolve to achieve further adoption.
This year’s Critical Communications World 2015 conference programme will bring together 200+ Senior Leading Speakers to address the operational models, latest developments and deployment of Public Safety LTE.
Is migration to LTE inevitable or just a complimentary technology for years to come? How can customer demands be met for both critical voice and high-speed data?
Join the following LTE Focus Sessions at Critical Communications World 2015
