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
2Taking 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).
3Some 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?
4Stakeholder 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...
