Welcome to Critical Communications World

15th - 17th May | Messe Berlin ExpoCenter City | Berlin

Serving the critical communications sector for 20 years

The TCCA’s flagship industry event lands in Berlin in May 2018. Mission- and business-critical end users will benefit from unparalleled access to authoritative content and unrivalled networking opportunities.

The event presents up-to-the-minute policy, insight and intelligence alongside real-world case studies and best practice advice. This year will showcase the latest technological innovations from over 100 organisations, making it the biggest CCW yet.

Driven by the TCCA, and therefore by the industry itself, Critical Communications World has the sector’s interest and needs at its very core.

The latest technology. Practical applications

Choosing the right technology can dramatically enhance your operational capability and efficiency. But the communications sector is evolving so fast, how do you assess the options?

Through the largest exhibition hall of its kind and the widest variety of talks and demonstrations available, CCW will help you understand…

  • The transition to LTE (critical mobile broadband)
  • The involvement of MNOs in PPDR communications
  • How to make the most of MCPTT via MCOP
  • What the future might hold – 5G, automation, artificial intelligence and beyond
  • How to combine IoT and big data with critical communications
  • What hybrid TETRA and LTE networks can bring
  • The advances and applications of critical narrowband

What to expect:

100+ Innovative technology companies

Technology Showcase Theatre

3 Premium Conference Streams

Masterclass Sessions

Control Room Arena

Drone Zone

Connected Vehicle Zone

Networking opportunities

Private LTE Networks, a developing story

​LTE technology is emerging as a strong option for private networks. Manufacturers such as Huawei and ZTE have been developing partnerships to offer private systems for utilities and transportation customers for some time.

How mobile operators benefit from CCW 2018

Today, mobile network operators in many parts of the world support critical communications users with commercial mobile broadband service. Though these end users have unusual requirements calling for high network reliability and priority access in times of trouble, few networks offer service support designed to meet the needs of critical communications users. As described in our earlier note on the opportunities for mobile network operators, new network features added since 3GPP Release 11 set the stage for just those types of high-performance beyond-consumer-grade service offerings. Of course, service offers are more than just technology options. Critical Communications World 2018 offers a valuable opportunity for mobile network operators to gain a better understanding of the unique needs of this challenging customer base.

TCCA Call for Papers: Critical Communications Middle East & Africa – CCMENA 2018

​With a stunning new venue and a clear focus on the powerful benefits that critical communications can bring to our world, TCCA’s Critical Communications Middle East and Africa 2018 (CCMENA) is set to deliver its sixth and best event in Dubai, from 23-25 September 2018, with the theme Smart Critical Communications – the Future World.

Moving forward in the transport sector

Outside the emergency services, it is difficult to find a sector as reliant on critical communications than transportation. The efficient flow of aircraft, trains and ships depends on the coordination of extensive mobile field forces dispersed across broad geographies. With lives and property at stake, the communications requirements are mission-critical and call for robust, high-performance communications systems.

What to expect for mission-critical IoT

Soon after the U.S. government awarded operation of its FirstNet program to AT&T, attention shifted to internet of things (IoT) innovation that the network could foster. Sometimes referred to as the "Internet of Life-Saving Things," the basic idea is to leverage a mission-critical mobile broadband communications network to boost safety and improve public safety mission effectiveness.
