60 seconds with APD Communications' Declan Whiting

Declan Whiting, Software engineer at APD Communications, discusses his career to date

How do you spend your time at work?

You’ll find me mostly with my head in my PC, implementing and integrating LTE features into Cortex, our ICCS. LTE is going to be a big part of the control room of the future, so it’s rewarding to contribute to the early and hopefully seminal modules.

What’s the one gadget that you can’t live without?

Noise-cancelling headphones. Working in an open plan office is great but there are certain times when they are must for me during a crunch.

Describe your most unforgettable project.

Being a part of the first – and only – control room vendor team to be nationally accredited on the Wave platform (which has been replaced by Kodiak) for the Emergency Services Network (ESN) is a career highlight, and a reminder that I’ve joined an incredible team at APD. That was during my first year with APD-ESN1.

What’s the most unusual thing you’ve seen while working in the comms sector?
