Airwave wins 2016 Business Continuity Award

Airwave, a Motorola Solutions company and Great Britain’s leading provider of mission-critical communication services, has won the ‘Resilience in Infrastructure & IT Service Delivery’ award at the 2016 CIR Business Continuity Awards held in London.

Successfully defending its title after winning the same award last year, Airwave was recognised for its approach to service that ensures Great Britain’s emergency services and public safety agencies are fully supported with highly available, resilient communications that cover 99% of Great Britain.

The judging panel examined how the planning for continuity was integrated into a wider strategy, looking especially at how innovation and scalability are used to bring the best levels of resilience in IT service delivery.

John Lewis, Chief Operating Officer of Airwave, said: “We are proud that we have once again been recognised for the quality of the resilient infrastructure on the Airwave Network and for the advanced emergency planning and business continuity processes that run throughout Airwave to keep the service running through the toughest conditions.”

“The Airwave Network and the service we provide have been carefully designed to meet the critical standards our emergency services need and deserve. Our 15 years of experience running the Airwave Network means that our business continuity plans are evolved and tested, putting us in the best possible position to respond quickly to any situation to keep our 300,000 users in communication.”
