Next Generation Technology Independent Interoperability of Emergency Services

GERYON proposes an innovative emergency inter-networking system capable of connecting existing irst responder
communication systems and enabling the integration of next generation mobile networks by  defining technology independent standardized interfaces and autonomic configuration and adaptation techniques under the umbrella of

Therefore, GERYON will unify common technical and operational logic of first responder communications networks
in a technology independent manner. This unification will offload interconnection gateways from  duplicated technology dependent details by providing a neutral interconnection interface. Proposed system will ensure seamless
operation regardless the access technology and take advantage of coverage and  responsiveness of existing PMRs and broadband data services of 4G networks.

GERYON will demonstrate both classical (i.e. PTT, MTP and preemptive calls) and enhanced emergency services
(i.e. multimedia streaming and data services) over an across-frontier testbed. Furthermore, its capability for including general purpose IMS terminals and GERYON enhanced ones will allow an easy access to first responder networks to different groups of unprotected users such as elderly people, people with special needs and battered women that will take advantage of enhanced services such as the “Red Button” over general purpose devices.
