TCCA confirms new broadband vice-chair


TCCA has appointed BDBOS' Luz Fernández del Rosal as vice chair of its Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG). She will take-over from the French Ministry of the Interior's Emmanuelle Villebrun.

Based in Berlin, del Rosal is currently responsible for the coordination of BDBOS' international activities. Her focus prior to this was on international standardisation in relation to both TETRA and LTE. Before joining BDBOS, she managed R&D projects at the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications in Berlin.

Speaking of the CCBG appointment, she said: “BDBOS shares the belief that the greatest benefit for the critical communications community relies on standards-compliant and interoperable solutions. As representative of BDBOS I would like to contribute to CCBG with the dynamic power of a big national operator, preparing the way towards broadband. From my professional experience, I have learnt that excellence can be achieved by bringing multiple competences and expertise together - this is the essence of CCBG.”

CCBG chair, and co vice-chair of the TCCA Board, Tero Pesonen said: “On behalf of CCBG, I am very pleased to welcome Luz as our new vice-chair. This is a significant role with key responsibilities as the activities increase around the standardisation, specification and certification of critical broadband products and services. 

“The appointment was formally approved during our online plenary meeting. We look forward to the immense contribution that Luz will make to the CCBG, and thank Emmanuelle for her invaluable work with the group.”

The CCBG working group drives the development and adoption of common global mobile broadband standards and solutions for users operating in a mission critical or business critical environment. It is responsible for TCCA’s input to 3GPP as the market representation partner for critical communications.

This year’s CCW takes place in Madrid, in the heart of the southern European critical communications market. To join us in November, register your interest to join us at CCW 2020.
