ACCF celebrates 20 years

On the 8th of December last year, the Australasian Critical Communications Forum Limited (ACCF) celebrated its 20th anniversary during its AGM, with guests from around the world joining the online event.

ACCF Chairman Roger Kane welcomed The Critical Communications Association (TCCA) Chairman Mladen Vratonjic, TCCA CEO Tony Gray and TCCA directors Tero Pesonen and Harald Ludwig as well as the former TCCA Chairmen Phil Godfrey and John Cox, former TCCA Vice Chair Jeppe Jepsen and former WF Media Event Director Paul Davis, among others to mark 20 years of enhancing critical communications in the Australasian region.

During the event ACCF Chairman Anton Abrahams thanked Tony Gray, who is retiring as the CEO of the TCCA, for his support to the Forum and congratulated Kevin Graham on his appointment as the new TCCA CEO. The ACCF also thanked Graham, the founding member of the Forum, for his dedication and services to the Forum since its inception, and wished him success in his new appointment.

Alongside TCCA objectives, ACCF advocates on behalf of mission- and business-critical stakeholders in the Australasian region with respect to the development and establishment of global non-proprietary LMR and LTE broadband standards to ensure that stakeholder and professional user requirements are adequately addressed, and cooperates with standardisation bodies such as ETSI and the 3GPP.

The ACCF has 25 members in Australia and New Zealand whereas TCCA has over 150 member organisations globally, comprising governments, vendors, integrators, telecom operators, and users in transportation, utilities and the resources industries.

Members of TCCA design, manufacture, build, implement, utilise, analyse, promote, develop and deploy critical communications worldwide.
