Technologies which are transforming the public safety domain in EMEA include Wi-Fi and WiMAX, mesh networking and RFID. The permanent autonomous organization Public Safety Communication Europe Forum (PSCE) is aiming at the safety of citizens during crisis and emergency situations and improving provision of public safety communications with proper information management systems.
Collaborations with public and private partners is taking place to achieve the goal of driving the deployment, development and operation of wireless service applications and corresponding networks in an urban area and to fulfill the overall strategic goals of public safety organizations and municipalities.
Wireless broadband technology is evolving at a fast pace due to its application in almost every field whether transportation, public safety, industrial usage, or in public services. The governments in EMEA are showing interest to know how wireless broadband is being used for public safety as well as considering if there is an increase in the need to access various applications through wireless broadband across borders.
In EMEA the spectrums of public safety are used in many applications due to limited spectrum availability in the network. Berlin has launched the project ‘Wireless City Berlin’ (WCB) which is supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This is an example of a public safety initiative project. Infrastructure development and services market are expected to show huge growth rate in the next seven years which will help in future growth of wireless communications in public safety and municipal wireless communication.
To improve communication about public safety and information related to latest developments there is huge opportunity for growth of wireless communication in public safety and municipal wireless communication.
The public safety devices and equipment market is expected to grow in the next three years where the infrastructure deployment growth will provide a strong background to the development of wireless technologies. This increase in wireless technology has future growth opportunities in public safety and municipal wireless communication.
