How to Join
The Australasian Critical Communications Forum (ACCF) is dedicated to supporting all stakeholders involved in open standard wireless communications relevant to professional, business and mission critical environments.
Become a Member and influence the future.
The Australasian Critical Communications Forum (ACCF) is the Australasian chapter of The Critical Communications Association (TCCA) who internationally is the front line force that drives the development and promotion of open standard critical communications solutions worldwide and represents organizations and end users globally, bringing together all those with an interest in the provision of wireless communications in a mission critical or business critical environment.
We believe in the principle of open and competitive markets worldwide through the use of common standards and harmonized spectrum and work closely with those organizations responsible for the development of standards relating to critical mobile communications such as ETSI and 3GPP who develop and maintain standards for public mobile networks.
The ACCF in cooperation with the global TCCA organisation advise and inform the critical communications market and its stakeholders, from governments to end-users, and have a strong influence on the direction of the industry working with standardisation bodies ETSI and the 3GPP group.
The TCCA is a catalyst in the evolution of critical LTE towards becoming a true global open standard critical communications bearer. In parallel, we provide the central role in the further development and enhancement of the TETRA open standard, and support other open standards of critical communication technologies, DMR, P25 and all 3GPP/ETSI broadband and mission-critical broadband standards (LTE/4G and 5G).
The technology expertise and investment of the TCCA/ACCF’s members in support of mission-critical non-proprietary, global ‘open’ wireless communication standards is recognised internationally and Australia.
