The Safety and Connectivity Imperative
In November 2020, IWCE partnered with Safer Buildings Coalition to introduce the only dedicated virtual conference that delves into the most pertinent topics surrounding the public safety issue of in-building connectivity.
Every day, situations arise that require critical communication exchange. In this era of enhanced connectivity and with the market for in-building wireless solutions gaining momentum, the need for reliable and secure communications is paramount.
Wireless signals don't always penetrate the farthest reaches of indoor space, but during an emergency, it is crucial to have a reliable signal that assures all calls will go through. In-Building Forum is all about public safety and the public's safety, as this event examines the importance of effective in-building communications for both public safety and the citizens they serve.
This premier event will provide you with unparalleled opportunities to connect with key stakeholders in in-building wireless deployment, including emergency communication professionals, city leaders, building owners, carriers and more. In-Building Forum’s extensive agenda covers the most current discussions in in-building advancements, such as connectivity, location accuracy, first responder communications and cybersecurity.
