Join the debate! CCW 2017 Congress

The Asian market is going through big developments and provides a wealth of opportunity, with some regions just starting to move away from analogue to other regions really innovatively using their TETRA networks whilst incorportating broadband solutions. With an expected attendance of 650+ delegates, the 19th annual congress will walk the delegate through the critical communication developments in Asia by region through country specific case studies, deep dive panel sessions, live polling, interviews and challenger sessions - a new addition to this year's congress!
