Don’t Miss B-APCO 2017   Author: Phil Jefferson

Created Mar 03 2017, 12:22 PM by Paul Jeffs

21-22 March, The International Centre, Telford, UK

British APCO continues to be the forum for public safety and civil contingencies communications engagement. Over the years the scope of the word communications has expanded to encompass both voice and data, with data becoming richer and increasingly important to your operations. As we look towards the rollout of Great Britain’s new Emergency Services Network (ESN) the role British APCO play in providing a place to exchange information, ideas and experiences is increasingly important. Motorola Solutions is at the heart of the upcoming changes with our responsibility for not only the Airwave network but also our responsibilities in the introduction of the ESN. Our support of British APCO is key to maintaining a close association with all users of mission-critical communications in this country, to do best by them now, during and beyond the introduction of ESN.

We are committed to the successful delivery of our contract for ESN User Services and the continued support for the Airwave network though the transition period. We recognise the high expectations and the reliance that more than 300,000 emergency and public service users will be placing on our services, solutions and people.

Managing the User Services of a nationwide mission-critical long term evolution (LTE) network is challenging. We have a proven track record of delivering, managing and operating large-scale, complex and dependable public safety networks across the globe. Today we are implementing the largest public safety LTE networks in the world. Building upon this unmatched experience will be the delivery of the ESN, for which we will also be providing the system integration and critical functionality for the new network based on 4G public safety LTE.

Alongside the introduction of the ESN, we are there to support users, whether they are on the street, in a vehicle or control room, with a complete response to their requirements - from devices to applications, vehicle installation to control room solutions and the services support required to ensure a secure and smooth evolution path to the new ESN. Putting our customers and their challenges as our first priority we will have a business unit dedicated to the management and operation of both the Airwave network and ESN. Our Service Desks are staffed 24/7 by highly-trained personnel who intimately understand the roles and needs of users and the services they require to focus on the core mission of Public Safety. They will assure our mission critical environment is protected at all times through best practice, industry-leading policies and processes.

We have been a relied-upon communications partner to the British emergency services community for more than 45 years and we intend to be there for every officer and crew member for many more to come.

During the event please come and see us at stand C5 and see how we will be supporting users today; mobilising intelligence on the street, in a vehicle or in a control room.

And of course, don't miss our speakers in the Conference and the Technology Showcase:
