Introduction: Presented by Kevin Graham — Director, Australasian Critical Communications Forum & Managing Director Global Digital Solutions
A brief overview of the ongoing work of the international TCCA (ACCF as regional representative for TCCA) and affiliated organisations who are driving progress on global standardisation for mission/business-critical requirements in land mobile radio and mobile broadband (4G/5G and satellite). Understand the status of standardisation and new initiatives underpinning the global standardisation, conformance and interworking efforts and also assisting with applications solution and ecosystem evolution. Hear how these benefit organisations who wish to augment existing wireless solutions with current and future generations of mobile broadband or are contemplating a transition to mobile broadband solutions.
Voice & Data interoperability, multi-bearer switching using artificial intelligence & application integration for mission/business-critical applications
Presented by Sohan Domingo — Director, Australasian Critical Communications Forum and Head of Product Management – Unified Solutions, Tait Communications
In this session Sohan Domingo will present that the future of mission-critical networks will involve a combination of different networks for voice communication between users in the field and control centre operators. A bearer combination of this sort needs a redundant and robust integrated backend infrastructure along with the front-end vehicle communication components to support voice interoperability between multiple bearers such as satellite, LMR, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE. This will enable field personnel using applications such as PTT to communicate over cellular service or other available bearer networks using a concept called smart bearer switching when there is no LMR coverage.
The presentation will also cover how emerging technology in AI/ML can be used in mission critical environments.
