Presentation on theme: "“TOWARDS A BROADBAND FUTURE”"— Presentation transcript:

TETRA & Critical Communications in Hungary 6th Professional Mobile Communications Workshop Budapest, April 2013 “TOWARDS A BROADBAND FUTURE” The TCCA’s Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG) Tony Gray Board Member, TETRA & Critical Communications Association (TCCA) Chairman, TCCA Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG) Regional Business Director P3 communications GmbH

2 Taking the broadband agenda forward
The TCCA’s Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG) is working with other stakeholder groups worldwide to: drive the standardisation of future common, global, mobile broadband technology solutions for Critical Comms users. lobby regulators etc. for appropriate - & as far as possible harmonised - spectrum for deployment of future Critical Comms broadband networks. Thus the CCBG’s goals are to: enable all Critical Comms users to access their information systems, apps. etc. reliably & at broadband speeds on their professional mobile devices wherever they are & whenever they have the need. ensure that future Critical Comms broadband solutions meet the particular needs of Critical Comms users just as reliably as today’s voice & narrowband data services are delivered by current technologies (e.g. TETRA).

3 Some key issues… Technology: can LTE infrastructures & services be made adequately reliable, resilient & available in practice for Critical Mobile use? all things are possible with the application of sufficient resources… Spectrum: can regulators be persuaded to assign enough, & in suitable bands, for Critical Mobile BB services to be operated in? thus far only in North America (700 MHz) & Australia (800 MHz)… Budgets: can administrations, politicians, funds-holders, etc. be convinced of the value of investment in Critical Mobile BB services? hence will delivering such services prove financially & practically viable? Delivery: what are the available options & relative pro’s & con’s? e.g. resource/service sharing with commercial operators, MVNO models, etc?

4 Stakeholder collaboration
CCBG participants include: user organisations, governments, operators, standards & regulatory bodies, equipment manufacturers & suppliers, consultants, etc. all members & partner organisations of the TCCA are entitled to participate The list of CCBG’s collaborative & cooperative relationships with other stakeholder groups globally is continually growing: UIC (European railways) E-UTC (European utilities) PSC-E (European public safety) NPSTC & NIST (USA) CITIG & CATA (Canada) APCO Global (e.g. Australasia) and so on...

The Strategic Case “WHY CMB?” “What’s the value?”

9 Technology standardisation
Aimed at including support of fundamentally required features for critical comms applications in future standards releases, e.g. for: Group working Direct mode Resilience & security Speech as well as data services

10 3GPP Standards Progress
WIDs! ProSe & GCSE-LTE accepted as Work Item Descriptions (WIDs) included in 3GPP LTE R12 The hard work has started...!

11 CCBG White Paper Information & guidelines for users, operators & others considering implementing mission critical mobile broadband services. Sets out predicted timeframe for availability of suitable standards & equipment. Outline roadmap for LTE as a technology evolution for TETRA & other existing mission critical systems.
