Session Overview

From the challenges of legacy systems to the uncertainties of implementing new technology

What happened to the days when it was sufficient to go to a manufacturer and order a radio system? Competition for the diminishing available spectrum has changed all that. Now we worry about network connectivity and interoperability and know more about the Federal Communications Commission processes than we ever imagined. This is in the context of existing systems and ongoing operations. This panel will offer a range of relevant subject matter based on current experience.
