TCCA represents organisations from around the world, bringing together all those with an interest in the provision of wireless communications in a mission critical or business critical environment. We believe in the principle of open and competitive markets worldwide through the use of common standards and harmonised spectrum.
TCCA is a Limited Company and is registered in the United Kingdom. It is governed by UK Law and, as such, is required to have two legal documents in place. The first is the Memorandum of Association which describes the purpose and principles of the Association.
The second legal document constitutes the Articles of Association. This is a set of legally binding rules and procedures that have been agreed by the Members and which the Board and Chief Executive follow when conducting the business of the Company. The documents are available to members.
TCCA was originally established in December 1994 (known then as the TETRA MoU Association) to create a forum to act on behalf of all parties interested in TETRA technology, representing users, manufacturers, application providers, integrators, operators, test houses and telecom agencies.
TCCA continues to support and promote the ongoing development and use of TETRA technology and is driving industry synergy in the development of future mobile broadband capability for the users and providers of critical communications.
TCCA works closely with the organisations responsible for the development of standards relating to critical mobile communications. These include ETSI and 3GPP who develop and maintain standards for public mobile networks.
TCCA comprises an Executive Board, which directs the Association’s many activities. Within TCCA there are also a number of Working Groups that have been formed to specifically support the Association’s objectives.
Applications Working Group
Broadband Industry Group (BIG)
Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG)
SCADA, Smart Grid and Telemetry Group
Security and Fraud Prevention Group (SFPG)
