Effective Public Protection & Disaster Relief (PPDR) communications
Preparation of the next generation of PPDR communication
Welcome to PPDR TCenter
A significant amount of network capacity needs to be available throughout the disaster and affected areas to support effective Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) communications where mobility is the main requirement. At very early stages of disaster response, voice communications are critical; nevertheless, non-voice communications become equally important as the consequences of the critical event unfold, depending on the nature of the disaster.
It is believed that a harmonised frequency allocation in one or more frequency ranges below 1 GHz, plus one or more frequency ranges above 1 GHz is the desirable solution for effective broadband mobile PPDR communication in Europe.
