Keynote Address: Critical communications standards supporting a multi-vendor and interoperable environment

09:05 - 09:35

The critical communications community has engaged in standardisation activities to ensure that their evolution path is supported by a multi-vendor and interoperable environment.  This engagement is a long term commitment and involves participation in a number of different standardisation bodies.

The primary focus for this work however lies within both ETSI and the Partnership Project 3GPP and so it is appropriate for this keynote address to focus on the progress made within those bodies in delivering critical communications standards.  This address will also look into the future and assess the extent to which 5G will play a role in serving critical communication needs.
