The Sapura Group, the operator of Malaysia’s 600 TETRA base station Government Integrated Radio Network (GIRN), has confirmed that it will be host operator for TCCA’s Critical Communications World (CCW) 2019.
Through the GIRN, Sapura serves more than 40,000 Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) users in 16 agencies throughout Malaysia. The company was established in 1975 and is a 100 per cent Malaysian owned technology-based entrepreneurship organisation. The Group has expanded and diversified its businesses across six major business areas: oil & gas, property development & construction, industrial & manufacturing, aviation, railway and defence & security.
CCW will be held at the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC), which spans more than 45,000 m2 of purpose-built exhibition space and triple volume exhibition halls. The venue is the largest trade and exhibition centre in Malaysia. The event has been running for more than 20 years, bringing together all with an interest in critical communications.
Mohd Zarif Hashim, Sapura Group COO said: “CCW is the established annual showcase for the latest developments in critical communications, and the platform for shaping the future of this market. As official host operator, we are delighted to welcome the event and all attendees to Malaysia, and to demonstrate the strengths of our region to the critical communications world.”
“The Sapura Group has a true commitment to the delivery of critical communications requirements and is a long-standing TCCA member,” said Tony Gray, TCCA chief executive. “We are delighted that Sapura has agreed to be host operator for CCW, and we look forward to working with the Sapura team and their Malaysian Government and agency customers to ensure that the invaluable work of the critical communications industry reaches the widest possible global audience.”
