At Critical Communications World, 31st May – 2nd June 2016, RAI Amsterdam we will be looking at how Mission Critical Communications end user requirements are evolving today, for tomorrow and the next decade. The programme will also closely evaluate how to get the most from existing TETRA networks, sharing best practice with Users from around the world and monitoring the development of Mission Critical Mobile Broadband.

You may have questions about how TETRA and LTE will co-exist for Mission Critical Users. What will be the voice and data requirements for Users in the short, medium and long term and how will these needs be met by existing infrastructure and forthcoming investments? Also, what is the future for TETRA?
LATEST REPORT FROM I.H.S
Latest findings from I.H.S suggests that “the use of LTE in private cellular networks is projected to grow tenfold between 2014 and 2019”
“Not only is LTE is being chosen in many regions as the technology for commercial cellular communication but it is now also being considered as a future broadband standard for critical communications users; the option of private LTE networks already a reality.
IHS has recently produced an in-depth analysis of the rapidly growing broadband market in critical communications for the next five years. A key finding from the research is that the use of LTE in private cellular networks is projected to grow tenfold between 2014 and 2019.
Although IHS forecasts that, long-term, the majority of private networks will migrate to LTE, the transition will be slower than previously projected. WiMAX will ultimately be displaced both in private LTE markets and commercial cellular market” (I.H.S, 2015).

To get your questions answered and to understand more about the future of networks and services join us for Critical Communications World, 31st May – 2nd June 2016, RAI Amsterdam.
Will LTE really be able to offer Mission Critical Users the services that they need? When? And at what cost? What steps are being taken to ensure that there will be a global standard for Mission Critical Mobile Broadband?
Standardisation for Mission Critical LTE is VITAL. The topic will form a key part of the debate at Critical Communications World 2014. Watch the videos below to hear more from ETSI, the French MOI and TCCA on the importance of developing common standards. Users of all Critical Communications technologies must draw together to drive forward common goals for Mission Critical Broadband technologies. (more…)
Critical Communications Middle East, takes place next month, 15 – 17 September 2013 at the JW Marriott Marquis, Dubai, UAE
Event Director, Hanna Jackson recently interviewed Tony Gray, Chairman Critical Communications Broadband Group, TETRA & Critical Communications Association on the international status of adoption of Mission Critical Broadband
Q: What’s the international status of adoption of Mission Critical Mobile Broadband – and how does the Middle East/Gulf compare?
Tony Gray, Chairman Critical Communications Broadband Group, TETRA & Critical Communications Association will be speaking at Critical Communications Middle East 2013
A: A number of regions worldwide have already expressed interest in the development and adoption of mobile broadband for critical users, such as the public safety and security services, transportation and utilities, and so on. In particular of course the passing of a law and assignment of spectrum and budget establishing ‘FirstNet’ as a nationwide public safety mobile broadband service throughout the USA has been a significant catalyst. Plus many other regions including in Europe, Australasia, China and so on are also in the vanguard of these new developments. However some countries in the Middle East have really been leading the way, for example Qatar which already has a fully functional public safety LTE network established, and also the UAE where the regulator has announced spectrum assignments for public safety broadband in the 700 MHz band.
Q: What could other regions learn from the progress made in the Middle East so far?
A: I think the Qatar and UAE developments individually highlight what are for me two key learning points for the rest of the world. So firstly: as in Qatar, authorities need to be bold in planning, budgeting and actually getting stuck in to projects which can deliver real operational benefits for the end users of critical mobile broadband. And secondly: as in the UAE, regulators of the world must recognise that critical users have urgent needs for adequate assigned spectrum in suitable bands in which to operate critical mobile broadband in future. With both aspects in play, we could really see some significant socio-economic benefits flow from the global adoption of critical mobile broadband. (more…)

Call For Papers
Critical Communications World will take place 21st – 24th May 2013 in Paris. The research and production process for the conference programme is now underway, giving you the opportunity to share your thoughts on content for the agenda and to submit a case study proposal.
During the last 14 years the TETRA World Congress has developed to become the annual meeting place for TETRA Users, Operators, Distributors and Manufacturers from around the globe. As the TETRA standard and User requirements have developed, so the event’s content and focus have evolved. Providing Mission Critical Mobile Broadband is the next big step for our industry. Today, Critical Communications Users are looking to the future and asking how they can access enhanced data services and applications (based on TEDS, WiMax, and LTE) alongside their secure and reliable voice and narrow band services.
Critical Communications World will incorporate the key show elements that you currently expect from the TETRA World Congress. In addition, we will be broadening the scope of the conference and exhibition to focus further on Critical Broadband technologies. The conference will examine how potential Mobile Broadband technologies can be combined with TETRA to meet the future voice and data requirements of Mission Critical Users. We welcome Users of all Critical Communications technologies to join the debate.
