Work underway on guide to 4G/5G MCX control rooms

TCCA (The Critical Communications Association) and PMeV – Netzwerk Sichere Kommunikation (the German Association and Network for Critical Communications) have agreed to cooperate on the development of a guide for connecting control rooms to mission-critical services (MCX) in 4G/5G networks.

A number of international control centre operators are also participating in this project.

“There is a vital need for guidance in the application of 3GPP standards to the connection of control rooms to critical broadband services and networks,” said Tony Gray, TCCA Chief Executive.

“This cooperation will develop an Implementation Guide for Control Rooms agreed by the 65 participants in TCCA’s Control Room Workshop earlier this year.

Gray said that the core thesis of the document is that only an internationally agreed solution based on global standards will be economically attractive, future-orientated and permits interoperability.

“The connection of control centres is highly important for mission- and safety-critical broadband applications in order to meet the increasing demand for broadband services in mission-critical 4G/5G networks,” said Bernhard Klinger, Chairman of the PMeV Board of Management.

“PMeV represents the German interest in mission-critical communication standardisation and will contribute to the international developments in this area.”
