1 “TOWARDS A BROADBAND FUTURE” TETRA & Critical Communications in Hungary6th Professional Mobile Communications WorkshopBudapest, April 2013“TOWARDS A BROADBAND FUTURE”The TCCA’s Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG)Tony GrayBoard Member, TETRA & Critical Communications Association (TCCA)Chairman, TCCA Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG)Regional Business DirectorP3 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 participateThe 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...
