|The project will develop a deployable high bandwidth gateway for emergency services accompanied with applications. The gateway will extend high capacity data communication through the use of existing radio technology. The deployable gateway will be used in addition to the low bandwidth voice and data systems already deployed by the emergency services. The innovative aspects will be in terms of the applications, control, management and security for the communication resources. From a service perspective, the innovative aspects will be ability to thoroughly demonstrate and pilot high capacity services for the emergency services.
The foundation for the project is interaction with user communities, so the functional requirement for the overall architecture and for the gateway itself is based on their needs. The usability of the concept will be demonstrated with trials aimed at the user community. The project will utilize and interact with other existing European projects within the emergency services, in particular the Widens and the Oasis project. Several of the project partners participate in one or more of these, and the will extend the knowledgebase from these project. In addition, public available demonstrators from the Widens projects will be extended in the planned demonstrations.
