Safe-Net Forum, TCCA sign MoU

The already strong cooperation between the Republic of Korea’s Safe-Net Forum and TCCA has been formalised with a memorandum of understanding.

Safe-Net Forum is a non-profit organisation comprising members from Republic of Korea communications network operators, user groups, industry, academia and government.

Safe-Net Forum advises on the development of the country’s public safety LTE system and promotes cooperation among various organisations, including for the interoperation of different networks and joint use of frequencies.

“We are very pleased to formalise the MoU with TCCA, the global organisation supporting standardisation in critical communications, and will cooperate and contribute to promote and expand mission-critical broadband technology, solutions and applications,” said Daehyoung Hong, Chair of Safe-Net Forum.

“We expect the mission-critical broadband technologies, which are still in their early stages, to be stabilised and in full bloom soon.”

Safe-Net Forum participates in reviewing policies and monitoring progress, is involved in the resolution of technical issues and standardisation, and provides comment and advice to support the project implementation.

Based on the secured technologies, solutions, systems and devices that are being utilised for the new critical communications network in the Republic of Korea, Safe-Net Forum is developing a strategic industry ecosystem to benefit the country’s domestic and international business interests.

“The Safe-Net Forum is widely recognised as leading innovation in public safety, and TCCA liaises with the Forum on a regular basis. This MoU formalises our cooperation for the purposes of information-sharing relating to common interests,” said TCCA Chief Executive Tony Gray.

“All in TCCA are committed to supporting and promoting the development and deployment of standardised critical communications technology, solutions and applications.

“This MoU will further strengthen our knowledge base and enable Safe-Net Forum to benefit from TCCA members’ experiences in building critical broadband networks.”

Gray will participate in the 2019 Safe-Net Forum International Conference on 23 October in Seoul.
