ARCIA, GWTCA Partner to Share Information
Tuesday, May 29, 2018 | Comments

The Australian Radio and Communications Association (ARCIA) and the U.S.-based Government Wireless Technologies and Communications Alliance (GWTCA) signed an agreement to share information regarding the development and use of wireless and associated communications technologies in their respective countries.

The two groups began talking more than 12 months ago about the benefits of aligning the two organizations to share information supporting the development of policy positions and active advocacy on behalf of their respective memberships.

Under the agreement, the organizations will have the ability to share information identifying common issues in the global wireless industry that delivers products and services crucial to the safety and quality of life of people and communities as the world becomes ever more connected on a daily basis.

While representing the needs of government users, the GWTCA is primarily involved in those sectors beyond the public safety and offers an opportunity for information sharing among segments such as transportation and public service. Over recent years, ARCIA has also offered support to government users in Australia, including being a resource for information on public-safety mobile broadband and offering advice to the regulator across many industry sectors.

ARCIA President Hamish Duff and GWTCA President Andy Maxymillian signed the agreement at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) in March.
