The Sepura CEO has been elected to the board of The Critical Communications Association.
According to a statement, Barber’s election to the board opens a new space on the TCCA TETRA Industry Working Group, which will be taken by Sepura’s chief technology officer Peter Hudson.
Speaking of the election, a spokesperson for the company said: “Steve brings to the association a thorough understanding of global critical communications user requirements, as well as extensive experience in supplying and manufacturing fit for purpose devices, and managing technology evolution.”
Barber said: “As a network agnostic company, focused on our customers’ needs, we have led multi-vendor interoperability for many years. This has been of significant benefit to users, giving them choice and flexibility when selecting their communications solutions and minimising proprietary implementations that restrict the market and slow down innovation.
“TCCA is an industry-wide body, and I am committed to representing all association members rather than the interests of an individual organisation.”
