PSCE is pleased to announce that the SALUS (Security and interoperability in next generation PPDR communication infrastructures) project has received the prestigious International Critical Communications Award (ICCA) in the category “Best Evolution to Future Broadband”. In its category, SALUS was up against Huawei, Finmeccanica, Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH, and Panorama Antennas. The awards were presented in an official ceremony held at the end of February 2016.
The ICCA awards are only given to entries that demonstrate excellence in critical communications. In order to win in the category “Best Evolution to Future Broadband”, a product, application or solution must demonstrate industry-leading innovation as well as engineering ingenuity in the integration of future broadband capabilities. They must also reliably meet the broadband data needs of critical communications users.
The ICCA is awarded by a panel of judges, all experts in the field of critical communications. In making their decision, the judges in particular praised SALUS for the significant impact it will have on the evolution of future technology specifications and the work it has done to quantify user demands and priorities.
PSCE is a key partner in the SALUS project. The goal of SALUS is to design, implement and evaluate a next-generation communication network concept for PPDR agencies.
