Abstract :
[en] In public safety many actors work together to achieve a common goal. However, communication among these actors is not always possible. Most use their own communication system and infrastructure, which are not always compatible with other participants’. A goal of this research is to analyse the current situation in terms of the capabilities of the different systems and to propose a solution for the successful interoperability between the different actors in the public safety arena by evaluating both current and improved communication infrastructures with a given scenario using a network simulator. To achieve this goal we analyse the capabilities of broadband communication infrastructure to create a model that describes its capabilities. We also analyse and evaluate the requirements for a communication infrastructure that can handle the daily communication flows, as well as the exceptional traffic that occurs during crises. Our evaluation and analysis is performed on country-level data sets that collect data over a certain period of time.
