Both first responders and commercial users have trade and industry association “champions.” The Government Wireless Technology & Communications Association focuses on public transit and other public service wireless technology and communications users, to be their voice and focus on solutions for their unique needs.
We advocate for policies of importance to our members and promote the advancement of wireless technology and communications as an effective means for public transit, other public service and public safety agencies to complete their missions.
GWTCA partners with other trade associations on a variety of issues to bring the strengths of each organization to focused projects. Most recently, GWTCA signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to collaborate on the development of TIA’s Smart Buildings Program. GWTCA will be providing its expertise in government wireless needs and uses to TIA to ensure that future “smart cities” take into account the needs of public safety and other government wireless users.
GWTCA also has partnerships with other organizations that provide content to a variety of industry professionals, including the International Wireless Communications Expo, WIA’s Connect X Connectivity Expo, the Global Transport Forum’s SmartRail World, the Australian Radio Communications Industry Association, DC5G and Capitol Technology University.
