What will you be speaking about at CCW 2022? Why is that an important topic?
I am going to participate in two panel discussions about the evolution of mission-critical services towards broadband. This is important as mission-critical broadband will allow us to significantly drive first responders’ operational excellence. Currently there is a gap in between the mission-critical services and tools used by the public safety community and what state of the art technology can offer them. This evolution towards mission-critical broadband will allow us to address this gap.
What are the key messages that you would like people to take away after attending your conference session?
That this broadband evolution has already started, so time is now to embrace it. With the effort of TCCA and the eco-system, technology is maturing and taking into consideration the specific requirements of mission-critical services. As a result we can see the take-off of broadband wireless in many critical industries.
What do you see as being the big issues and challenges for the sector over the next five years?
This evolution towards mission-critical broadband is a significant change. It’s not just a new and more robust way of communicating between first responders, but it will impact many aspects of their operations. Embracing this digitalization effort, with the associated evolution in the way public safety agencies operate, will be the big challenge for this community over the next 5 years, as well as their priority.
What are you most looking forward to at CCW 2022 in Vienna? Are there any conference sessions in particular that have caught your attention?
CCW is always a great occasion to learn about the latest market developments with many interesting sessions in the programme from authorities that will share their real-life experience. It’s also a unique opportunity to meet our customers in one place, and present our innovations to them.
