Sustaining the Airwave Service

Following on from the recent announcement that the Airwave service has been extended by a further 3 years to the end of 2022, this session will provide an update on the plans to ensure that the Airwave network is always extendable and is always capable of providing mission critical communications for Emergency Services users.
Areas that will be covered during the presentation will include the details of the programme to refresh base stations, the plans to upgrade switch clusters and the rollout of the new control room interface, how special coverage solutions will continue to be maintained and how the operational and business support systems will be upgraded and refreshed.
An update will also be provided on the two programmes of work that are already underway to replace the transmission infrastructure in the Airwave access and core networks.
