Welcome

International Critical Communications Awards


Welcome to the International Critical Communications Awards

The International Critical Communications Awards 2018 are now open for nominations. Organised by Land Mobile and TETRA Today, in association with the TCCA, the ICCAs are regarded as the most sought-after accolade in critical communications.

Celebrating innovation, excellence and execution in mission critical communications, the International Critical Communications Awards (formerly the International TETRA Awards) recognise products, organisations and individuals who push the boundaries of technological capabilities.

Advancements in technology have opened up the potential of both mission and business critical communications, allowing the design and implementation of solutions that would have been considered science-fiction only a decade ago.

This rapid change is reflected in the evolution to the International Critical Communications Awards, opening this internationally renowned initiative to technologies outside of TETRA, yet still placing trunked radio communications at its core.

Have a look at the categories and make a nomination today.
