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.
September’s issue strikes a balance between the push for innovation and mission-critical communications’ fundamentals. The former is well catered for with the growing use of VR and AR to help train first-responders and aid control room operators, the use of drones to deliver equipment to those affected by natural disasters, together with our coverage of the impending roll-out of South Korea’s public safety network, the Middle East’s push for mission-critical LTE and the BroadWay project.
On the fundamentals side, one of the most critical things to get right is radio discipline. Richard Martin’s article on page 47 looks into how this can be obtained and is worth a read. Finally, the whole point of mission-critical networks is that they stay up no matter what. Back-up power is key, and the editor looks into this on page 38.
