PPDR and MNO operators share insights
Forty delegates from 18 European national PPDR network operators and several commercial mobile network operators recently gathered in Amsterdam for a two-day meeting hosted by TCCA.
A key presentation was that of TJ Kennedy, former president of FirstNet and now principal in The Public Safety Network in the USA. Kennedy presented on the procurement process and lessons learned from developing the partnership between FirstNet and AT&T.
“TCCA is delighted to be leading this initiative to bring our critical communications operator members together with their commercial counterparts,” said TCCA Chief Executive Tony Gray.
“We are pleased to note that several commercial MNOs have become TCCA members in order to pursue this engagement and learning between the different parties.”
The discussion will continue at Critical Communications World in Berlin in May, where representatives of the critical communications community and their commercial counterparts will all be involved.
