Critical Communications Today is dedicated to the global critical communications market. It aims to inspire and inform the critical communications community and is published with the support of TCCA. Initially launched in 2010 as TETRA Today, this publication provides technical advice, authoritative editorial and commentary spanning all areas of mission-critical communications.
August's issue of Critical Communications Today has much in store for its readers, especially those keen to learn more about the practical aspects of the migration to mission-critical LTE. Read Richard Martin’s piece on drive-testing on page 31 to get a feel for how coverage can be verified, while James Atkinson’s piece on ProSe (page 10) explores the ability (or relative lack thereof) of LTE-based devices to operate in direct mode. The public safety community is not alone in its desire to embrace the cellular world – the railway industry is following suit with the work to develop FRMCS as a successor to GSM-R – Sam Fenwick’s piece on page 28 has the details. Finally, check out this month’s supplement for an in-depth look at what you can expect to see and learn at CC MENA.
