Whether that be Next Gen 911, Interoperability, 5G solutions for high powered connectivity, real-time situational awareness, or wildfire response, you’ll leave these presentations with a strengthened awareness of what is possible, and how to get it done. You can then visit our new exhibitor pods and foster new connections when you follow up on presentation content.

Convergence Theater

Visit the Convergence & Collaboration Stage to learn more about how organizations and individuals from across the value chain are working together to create innovative solutions to critical problems. Technological evolution facilitates both convergence and collaboration, forcing us to find new ways to work together to achieve our goals. Content on this stage will focus on how players and emerging technologies in the critical communications world work together to achieve extraordinary things.


Visit this area for a multi-media experience demonstrating a wide array of innovative products supporting the critical communications ecosystem.
