Wireless communications have achieved a great attention during the last decades due to the easy implementation, possibility of delivering multimedia services to rural communities, suitability for public safety and emergency communications. In particular, a wireless network designed for an emergency scenario has to be capable of monitoring sensible areas and allow connecting people working just after a disaster. This paper discusses the main features of a wireless network aiming to interconnect several heterogeneous systems and providing multimedia access to groups of people in order to better monitor a certain area, to have a fast response in case of a disaster and to efficiently coordinate all the forces during the disaster management phase.

Abstract

Wireless communications have achieved a great attention during the last decades due to the easy implementation, possibility of delivering multimedia services to rural communities, suitability for public safety and emergency communications. In particular, a wireless network designed for an emergency scenario has to be capable of monitoring sensible areas and allow connecting people working just after a disaster. This paper discusses the main features of a wireless network aiming to interconnect several heterogeneous systems and providing multimedia access to groups of people in order to better monitor a certain area, to have a fast response in case of a disaster and to efficiently coordinate all the forces during the disaster management phase.
