IWCE’s In-Building Forum

Published on 18th November 2020

Join us at IWCE's 2020 virtual In-Building Forum in partnership with Safer Buildings Coalition, where we will be participating as a Gold Sponsor.

This two-day dedicated conference focuses around the importance of designing ultra-reliable and secure in-building connectivity for public safety as we edge towards smarter buildings and safer cities.

Topics on the agenda include: 5G, in-building connectivity, equipment, indoor coverage, public safety and wireless technology.


Here's what we'll be talking about:

Panel session
Public Safety and the Safety of the Public: Ensuring that First Responders Can Communicate Inside Buildings
Wednesday, November 18, 12:35-1.25pm EST/EDT
No matter what platform the citizen or the first responder is using, voice communications is the first line of defence in an emergency. Yet wireless signals are often lost or blocked in some of the most significant places indoors an elevator, stairwell, basement or interior areas. Voice communications, data, notifications, alerts, location information are all vital tools for both first responders and citizens. Ensure that both are able to communicate no matter where they may be inside a building, warehouse, hi-rise or any structure.
