PSCR 2017 Deployable Networks R&D Summit

PSCR is pleased to announce that the 2017 Deployable Networks R&D Summit will take place October 18-19, 2017 at the Department of Commerce Boulder Labs. The Summit will enable stakeholders to provide input on public safety’s requirements and desired outcomes for the “next generation deployable network,” defined by PSCR as multiple independent LTE networks all operating in conjunction with one another to augment the existing public safety broadband network. Summit attendees will be asked to brainstorm how LTE architecture, resiliency, backhaul, and other potential solutions could advance to more effectively support several deployable network use cases that PSCR has already identified. In short, stakeholders from industry, academia, public safety, and government will help define what is possible to achieve through public safety’s use of highly-mobile deployable networks and propose solutions on how various organizations may contribute products, services, and/or technical expertise that can help make this vision a reality.

In addition, PSCR will demonstrate its deployable networking capabilities and describe the establishment of a PSCR deployable network testbed which is currently under development. This event will bring together a wide range of representatives from across the diverse deployable networking technology sector to review PSCR research in this field to-date and collect technical information to inform the development of deployables-related R&D project plans. 

If you are not registered, you will not be allowed on site. Registered attendees will receive security and campus instructions prior to the workshop.
