ABOUT THE EVENT /

The number one event for critical communications users and industry in the region

With a keen eye on trends, hot topics and the latest technology solutions in the critical communications sector, Comms Connect is the key source for vital information and networking opportunities. Whether you’re in the resource sector or public safety, transport or utilities, security or consulting, the conference and exhibition delivers countless opportunities to seek out new technology, share ideas and make new contacts.

Is narrow-band radio still the best technology solution for the environment you need to deliver critical comms for?

Which Public Safety Mobile Broadband solution will be the preferred choice of most agencies here in Australia and why?

What mix of technologies can deliver you total coverage solutions for vast geographical areas?

Where is 5G heading and what needs to be done to ensure a smooth transition in the years ahead?

Is DMR set to continue to grow in popularity or will an alternative technology take market share?

All these questions and more will be answered at Comms Connect Melbourne 2017.

See you in Melbourne!
