"The EDGE Innovation Centre is very useful in helping me to understand the direction the industry is headed in. It really opened my eyes to the capabilities being developed and helped deepen my understanding. I believe a collaborative forum like the EDGE helps the public safety community in our effort to build for the future – we are trying to make decisions today which will shape the public safety communications of tomorrow and this is hard to do. The EDGE also gives public safety a voice with respect to whether or not we think industry is heading in the right direction and I think this has enormous benefits for everyone."
