Press Release

Sophia Antipolis, 2 June 2015

Disaster situations often require additional emergency communications networks to be set up locally to enable responders (e.g. medical, rescue, care etc.) to coordinate their operations more effectively in the disaster area. To set up these networks efficiently, a standardized basis for estimating the capacity and other characteristics for communications by responders is highly desirable. This basis could then be used by many organizations including satellite network operators, equipment manufacturers and responders for design and development of systems, equipment and applications, not only for voice and data but also multimedia services.
