About the NGCI Community
The NGCI Community brings together communications innovators, developers and practitioners concerned with the future of interoperable communications to share ideas, discuss key insights, identify and discuss next-generation issues and emerging technology trends, and to discuss potential impacts on emergency response. The current topics listed on this forum were identified during the 2011 Workshop and through discussions with members of the homeland security user community and experts from industry, academia, national laboratories, and government agencies.
Feedback and involvement from participants will ensure this community is a useful resource for those concerned with the future of interoperable communications. We encourage you to contribute your thoughts, ideas and questions on the current topics and please contact us with any suggestions for future topics.
