Tuesday, June 23, 2020 | Comments

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) joined the Safer Buildings Coalition (SBC). The groups signed a memorandum of understanding to support collaboration on standards and best practices that are key to advancing the safety of the public in the built environment, with a specific focus on smart technologies and wireless communications inside of buildings.

In the agreement, SBC also joined the TIA Smart Buildings Program as a participant. “We are excited to join the Safer Buildings Coalition and to have their participation in our Smart Buildings Program,” said Marta Soncodi, TIA Smart Buildings Program director. “TIA has a long history of supporting first response and public-safety initiatives through work done in TIA’s TR-8 Engineering Committee, which focuses on mobile and private radio interoperability standards. Safety will always be a critical component to building operations and our organizations, and members will mutually benefit from our collaboration in the advancement of smart buildings.”

“The members and staff of the Safer Buildings Coalition are excited to join together with TIA to collaborate on fostering and advocating for safe, smart buildings,” said John Foley, managing director of SBC. “Now more than ever, public-safety agencies, and the public they protect, must have ubiquitous, reliable communications while inside buildings. We look forward to working side by side with TIA and their member organizations to further that mission.”
