Public Safety Applications over WiMAX Ad-Hoc Networks


Wireless communications in the public safety heavily depends on the robustness, reliability, availability and usability of the communication system. In the past decades this was achieved at the price of extremely high system cost, and was often based on specialized solution that lacked interoperability. Faced by severe cost constraints, the need to ensure interoperation of various agencies, and the desire to involve existing infrastructures available, the public safety community is increasingly attracted by the opportunity to utilize off-the-shelf technology in conjunction with both specialized and commercial communication systems.
