The leading global conference for mission-critical and business critical communications is this year heading to Vienna. After two years of reduced attendance due to the pandemic, the 2022 show is set to see record numbers of visitors, highlighting the importance of the show in the industry calendar. In this week’s blog Axel Schroeder, Global Product Manager Wireless Indoor Solutions tells us what to expect from RFS at this year’s show and gives his top picks on what to see while in Vienna.

Back to business 

It is great to see that Critical Communications World (CCW) is set to be a lively show this year with plenty to discuss at the industry’s first big show since 2019. Despite tough operating conditions, we have seen vendors push forward with innovations to solve challenges and the advent of new technologies that can be leveraged for the benefit of customers. 

Recent research from Research&Markets put the current global Critical Communication Market at $17.66 billion in 2022, and it is projected to grow to $27.02 billion by 2027. The range of keynote and panel discussions looking at the current state of the industry will give an idea of the shape of growth the industry is expecting and with this in mind we’ve picked our highlights from the 2022 program. 

RFS top picks

1.    Tuesday 21st June, 3:30pm Theatre D - How can public safety benefit from internet of life saving things?

The potential of IoT has been much discussed in recent years, but this panel discussion will look specifically at the relevance to public safety. Following the launch of our UBI solutions for connected city deployments earlier this year, we’re keen to see the panel’s take on this particular topic. 

2.    Wednesday 22nd June, 10:00am, Theatre A – What will the future look like in 10-20 years, and what should we do about it now?

All trade shows look to give some level of insight into how future technologies will affect their industry but it is rare to see predictions of 20 years into the future. Exploring how technologies like AI, AR, VR and robotics will impact critical comms, it looks to be a particularly interesting way to kick off day two of the show. 

3.    Thursday 23rd June,12:15pm, Theatre A - Critical Communication updates from around the world

The final day of the show includes a global panel giving a worldwide perspective on critical comms. Always interesting to see how different regions tackle challenges and with speakers from Australia, Saudi Arabia and across Europe we will get a real insight into any learnings that can come from considering different viewpoints.
