TCCA has collaborated with German critical communications organisation PMeV Netzwerk Sichere Kommunikation on guidelines to help control rooms connect to mission critical services in 4G/5G.
According to a statement, a number of international control centre operators are also participating in the project.
Discussing the initiative, TCCA chief executive Tony Gray said: "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.
“This cooperation will develop an ‘Implementation Guide for Control Rooms,’ agreed by the 65 participants in TCCA’s control room workshop earlier this year. The core thesis of this document is that only an internationally agreed solution based on global standards is economically attractive, future-oriented and permits interoperability.”
Chairman of the PMeV board of management, Bernhard Klinger, said: "The connection of control centres is highly important for mission/safety-critical broadband applications, in order to meet the increasing demand for broadband services in mission-critical 4G/5G networks. PMeV represents the German interest in mission-critical communication standardisation, and will contribute to the international developments in this area.”
