Airwave joins Critical Communications Middle East conference programme


Airwave will present and participate in a panel discussion at Critical Communications Middle East 2013, at the JW Marriott Marquis, Dubai from 15-17 September 2013.

Airwave’s Mike McKone, international business development director, will present on how to deliver more information between a vehicle and a control room using bonding bearers (bearer aggregation). The presentation will also delve into bridging the gap between data bearer capability and the future availability of LTE.

As well as presenting during the event, Airwave has a stand presence to showcase some of the business’s more recent achievements. These include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Airwave’s 2011/ 2012 sustainability achievements and business continuity case studies.

We look forward to sharing our expertise and experience with our colleagues attending Critical Communications Middle East,” said McKone.
