The National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) and the TETRA & Critical Communications Association (TCCA) announced they have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) to underscore their joint commitment of the need to develop mission critical public safety communications standards for Long Term Evolution (LTE)-based technology. This agreement will enhance the development of wireless broadband communications which will improve public safety’s service for citizens around the world.
