Safe-Net Forum signs MOU with TCCA


Ongoing cooperation between TCCA and the South Korean Safe-Net Forum has been formalised via a memorandum of understanding.

The forum advises on the development of the country’s public safety LTE system. It also promotes cooperation among partner organisations, for instance in relation to the interoperation of different networks, as well as joint use of frequencies.
The forum has also participated in reviewing policies, monitoring progress, resolving technical issues, and in the standardisation process. It is ”developing a strategic industry ecosystem to benefit the country’s domestic and international business.”
Speaking of the MOU, chair of Safe-Net Forum Daehyoung Hong said: “We are very pleased to formalise the MoU with TCCA, the global organisation supporting standardisation in critical communications. [We] will cooperate and contribute to promote and expand mission critical broadband technology, solutions and applications. We expect the mission critical broadband technologies, which are still in their early stages, to be stabilised and in full bloom soon.”
TCCA chief executive Tony Gray said: “The Safe-Net Forum is widely recognised as leading innovation in public safety, and TCCA liaises with the Forum on a regular basis. This MoU formalises our cooperation for the purposes of information sharing relating to common interests.
“All in TCCA are committed to supporting and promoting the development and deployment of standardised critical communications technology, solutions and applications. This MoU will further strengthen our knowledge base and enable Safe-Net Forum to benefit from TCCA members’ experiences in building critical broadband networks.”
The forum is a non-profit organisation made up of members from the Republic of Korea's communications network operators, as well as its user groups, industry, academia and government.
Tony Gray will be participating in the 2019 Safe-Net Forum International Conference on October 23 in Seoul.
