APCO & TCCA join forces

The affiliation between the APCO Global Alliance and TETRA Critical Communications Association to support the Public Safety Communications Research laboratories in their efforts to raise the awareness of the need for mission critical standards for new generation technologies, marks an important first step in the closer collaboration between the global representative bodies.

The work to put the affiliation in place commenced through discussions that took place at the 2012 APCO Australasia Conference and Exhibition in Queensland in March. These conversations continued through meetings held in Manchester, UK and Dubai, UAE and culminated with co-coordinated announcements being made in Washington DC at the National Broadband Summit and in Dubai UAE at the TETRA World Congress.

The announcement of the affiliation between the APCO Global Alliance and the TCCA provides some insight to the work being done by APCO Australasia in representing the interests of the sector internationally, however, at the same time, work has continued within Australia to build local affiliations which can be seen in the affiliations announced at the APCO Australasia conference in Queensland; with the Australian Radio Communications Association (ARCIA) and Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV).

APCO Australasia is also working closely with the Australian TETRA Association to replicate the affiliation announced between the global associations.
