Webinar: Mission-critical product certification

The Global Certification Forum (GCF) and TCCA will hold a joint webinar to provide an update on progress made by the Joint Task Force for mission-critical (MC) product certification that was established in January this year.

The webinar will begin at midnight Australian Eastern Standard Time on 2 July.

Work has been ongoing to assess the possibility for a certification scheme based on prioritising industry requirements and completion of a gap analysis of frequency bands and mission-critical functionalities against current available processes in GCF.

The webinar will provide a summary of progress to date and encourage the mission-critical industry to come forward and participate in development of mission-critical push-to-talk field trials.

In addition, industry is invited to provide input into a certification program for the end-to-end interoperability and security of MC products, applications, services and networks.

“Our Joint Task Force was created from a need within the MC industry for a formal certification and interoperability testing process to ensure compliance to standards,” said Chris Hogg, Head of Certification for 5G at GCF and Co-Chair of the GCF-TCCA Joint Task Force.

“We have made significant progress in the past six months and are now ready to engage with all stakeholders in mission-critical services so that we can shape the development of the industry together and provide end users with a seamless service.”

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to the Joint Task Force work — the outcomes are testament to the commitment of the volunteers and to the importance that the market has placed on this initiative,” said Harald Ludwig, Chair of TCCA’s Technical Forum and Co-Chair of the GCF-TCCA Joint Task Force.
