Critical Comms on Show

May 17, 2018

The 20th Critical Communications World has attracted the professional user community to Berlin this week, for the industry’s top conference and exhibition. Both ETSI and 3GPP leaders joined 3GPP market partner TCCA at the exhibition, on the awards program and speaking at the conference.

CComs features diagErik Guttman and Georg Mayer spoke on the 3GPP MC topic, highlighting recent enhancements to Mission Critical Push-to-talk (MCPTT), MCVideo and MCData as well as looking forward to 5G future work.

At the International Critical Communications Awards (ICCA 2018), on the first evening of CCW, we presented a glass trophy to the TCCA in recognition of their 20 years of work, through the TETRA Congresses and the CCW conference series.

A stalwart of SA6 and the TETRA communities – Dave Chater-Lea – was also a winner at ICCA, receiving the Industry’s award for an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Critical Communications’.

Launch of the 3GPP CVD process

April 18, 2018

Under the guidance of our security group (SA3) and partner organization’s experts, we are able to announce that the 3GPP Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD) process is now up-and-running.

The CVD will allow suspected or proven vulnerability caused by errors, omissions or ambiguities in our Technical Specifications to be reported and quickly forwarded to the appropriate 3GPP Group, to analyse and resolve the problem.

This is the first time that we have put a process in place for this activity, formalizing how individuals or organizations can provide information on vulnerabilities related to our deliverables.
