Critical Communications Today
This issue touches on many of the same themes as this year’s Critical Communications World (CCW) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Our article on Southeast Asia on page 10 will get you rapidly up to speed on recent developments in region and discusses Malaysia’s nationwide TETRA network in detail, along with its operator’s plans for mission-critical broadband.

One country which has ample incentive to press ahead with its push for mission-critical broadband is France, given its need to enhance interoperability between its public safety agencies in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack, move away from Tetrapol and roll out the latest technology in time for both the Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games in 2024.
