Last quarter, the TCCA chairman stressed the importance of continuing global efforts in evolving open standards in both the mission critical capability on broadband networks (private and carrier) and also enhancing the existing digital narrowband standards (TETRA, P25, DMR) to ensure seamless interoperation can be achieved across networks, between devices and with critical control centres.

As populations grow, cities swell and man-made and natural disasters become more frequent, so also is the demand for critical services and therefore critical communications capability that supports service delivery. This includes public protection and disaster response and vital utility services including public access communications, transportation, healthcare, education and other government/industry services that underpin the general economy of nations.
