TCCA Partners with 450 MHz Alliance on M2M Standards
Tuesday, January 28, 2020 | Comments

TCCA and industry association 450 MHz Alliance (450A) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to formalize the cooperation between the two organizations on standardized technology, solutions and applications for critical mobile broadband communications.

450A aims to accelerate the growth of the 450 MHz frequency band for global machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, universal broadband and fixed wireless communications. TCCA said its work is complementary to that of 450A, which represents the interests of 450 MHz spectrum stakeholders.

“In addition to our key market of mission-critical public safety, our work on standardization is relevant to many sectors with critical users, including smart cities, smart grids and the wider applications of the IoT (internet of things),” said TCCA Chief Executive Tony Gray. “In some of these areas there is already available spectrum in 450 MHz, and others are actively seeking it. TCCA and 450 MHz Alliance have a number of members in common, so collaboration for the benefit of all is an obvious step forward.”

450A members have interests in M2M for vertical markets such as smart grids and metering, as well as associated VoIP and broadband applications for sectors with comparable network design requirements.

“450 MHz Alliance is excited to partner with TCCA recognizing the synergy between the two organizations,” said Gösta Kallner, executive chairman of 450A. “We share many common objectives, including promotion of robust solutions for mission-critical communications such as smart energy, smart cities and transportation. This MoU will allow for closer collaboration, sharing information, joint standardization activities and thus be more productive to our combined members mostly representing an industrial IoT community.”
