Being able to offer suitable mobile devices to Erillisverkot and its public safety users is a crucial part of the Virve 2.0 development project in Finland

To learn more about the device suppliers’ current offerings and near time plans Erillisverkot published a Request for Information (RFI) in September.

“The deadline for responses was a couple of weeks ago and we are currently reviewing them. To our delight, we have noticed that more and more of the available equipment support the higher priority mission critical traffic classes. These are needed in order to provide a good service to the Virve 2.0 users over a shared radio network also during network congestion,” says Development Manager Ari Toivonen, Erillisverkot.

He presents the first findings from the responses to the Request for Information on the international Critical Communications Week on 5th November in an online broadcast starting at 13.15 (EET).

Critical Communications Week 2020 (November 2-6) is an international event organized by the The Critical Communications Association (TCCA).

Thursday 5th of November is the Critical Communications Finland Day organized by the Business Finland.
