Avtec, Airbus DS (formerly Cassidian Communications), Eventide, Exacom, Tait Communications, and Zetron recently joined together to host a special event to focus on the importance and the benefits of open standards.
Eight different speakers, including two Public Safety communication managers, shared insights and experience about open standard solutions. Although the event was for consultants, the content was so good that we decided to share it with you here.
Three different topics were covered, and in this second section we'll explore The Console Subsystem Interface (CSSI) – Maintaining Choice for Your Customers.
