Wireless communications have received much attention during the last decades due to easy implementation, the possibility of delivering multimedia services to rural communities, and the suitability for public safety and for communicating in emergency situations. In particular, a wireless network designed for an emergency scenario must be capable of monitoring sensitive areas and must enable people to connect immediately after a disaster. This article discusses the main features of a wireless network that aims to interconnect several heterogeneous systems and provide multimedia access to groups of people to better monitor a specific area, to have a fast response in case of a disaster, and to efficiently coordinate all of the forces during the disaster management phase.

Abstract

Wireless communications have received much attention during the last decades due to easy implementation, the possibility of delivering multimedia services to rural communities, and the suitability for public safety and for communicating in emergency situations. In particular, a wireless network designed for an emergency scenario must be capable of monitoring sensitive areas and must enable people to connect immediately after a disaster. This article discusses the main features of a wireless network that aims to interconnect several heterogeneous systems and provide multimedia access to groups of people to better monitor a specific area, to have a fast response in case of a disaster, and to efficiently coordinate all of the forces during the disaster management phase.
