IP-Based Emergency Applications and ServiCes for NExt Generation Networks

The project IP-Based Emergency Applications and ServiCes for NExt Generation Networks (PEACE), funded through the FP7 programme “Research for SMEs”, aims at providing a general emergency management framework (based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)) addressing extreme emergency situations such as terrorist attacks and natural catastrophes as well as day-to-day emergency cases such as calls to the police or fire brigade.

Through this project, important issues such as

  • user and device location,
  • representation of emergency numbers in IMS and its mapping to PSTN,
  • IMS extension for indication of location and emergency numbers,
  • addressing the emergency requests to the closest answering point

will be investigated and implemented.

The consortium is a healthy mixture of SMEs including VoIP service provider, VoIP security and signaling products manufacturers as well as reputed research organizations with long experience in the areas of security and VoIP.
