24 October 2017, Espoo, Finland: TCCA Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG) Plenary 16 takes place from 25-27 October in Espoo, Finland, hosted by TCCA member Nokia.

More than 55 organisations including critical communications users, public safety and commercial operators, regulators, broadband equipment vendors, critical applications providers, consultants and representatives of standardisation organisations are coming together to drive action towards critical broadband.

CCBG Plenary 16 extends over three days. On the first day, authorities and solution provider companies from the host country Finland will demonstrate their successful cooperation, achieved by working together based on trust between the agencies and critical communications services and applications.

The second day drills into critical communications 3GPP standardisation requirements, and questions related to transition to broadband use.

The third day is devoted to addressing different possibilities and concerns for mobile network operators (MNOs) looking to serve critical communications verticals. An introduction will be provided by the Finnish public safety service operator VIRVE into the particularities of public safety as a customer segment. This will be complemented by a presentation on the UK Emergency Services Network (ESN), and the preliminary outcomes of the TCCA MNO task force study.
