GERYON successfully presented at British APCO 2013 Exhibition

GERYON project went public once again at British APCO (BAPCO) 2013 Exhibition. The main audience of the BAPCO 2013 event were the public safety communication stakeholders. The GERYON stand presented a video, three posters and three live demonstrations.

The GERYON Project video

This video presents an overview of the GERYON project. At the beginning, it demonstrates the need of the GERYON project that aims to provide next generation technology independent interoperability of future emergency services.

The fourth GERYON Video: Control room demo

In this video demo, we show a number of services of the GERYON Control room, including including video call, chat with file transfer, and call forwarding and dispatching.

The third GERYON Video: TETRA to IMS terminal text message demo

In this video demo, we show an text message conversation between a TETRA device and an IMS terminal.

The second GERYON Video: LTE to TETRA terminal call demo

In this video demo, we show a call stablishment between an LTE device and a TETRA terminal.

GERYON will participate in the British APCO 2013 Exhibition at Stand H2

The GERYON consortium has booked the Stand H2 in the BAPCO 2013 Exhibition (Manchester Central, UK, 29-30 April 2013) to demonstrate the GERYON project and share ideas, information and experience with sellers, specifiers and users from Public Safety communications.

Intermediate project results

Project Overview

In the current digital world, users of first responder communication systems are aware of the benefits that the interconnection between different Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) and the integration of new advanced data services could bring to their professional sectors. Considering the current multimedia capabilities of both emergency and general purpose mobile terminals, it is just a matter of time that we see police or fire-fighter units transmitting image-based vital information in real time to central stations or to other mobile units in order to assure quick and expert responses to critical incidents. In order to satisfy this need for broadband data services, different PMR technologies have tried to improve data transmission capabilities. Unfortunately, however, interoperability between systems is largely based upon bespoke interfaces between specific systems.

GERYON will provide an unified answer to the problems that system integrators must face when interconnecting different emergency networks by bringing together and deploying in a specialised manner the common technical and operational logic regarding Identity Management, Security, Signalling, Transcoding and enhanced emergency services deployment. Instead of duplicating the same functionality in different gateways for each pair of technologies to be connected, GERYON will extract and unify the related management modules in a technology independent way and will provide mechanisms and interfaces for an easy deployment of new technology dependent interconnection gateways.
