Wireless Public Safety Networks, Volume One: Overview and Challengespresents the latest advances in the wireless Public Safety Networks (PSNs) field, the networks established by authorities to either prepare the population for an eminent catastrophe, or as support during crisis and normalization phases.

Maintaining communication capabilities in a disaster scenario is crucial for avoiding loss of lives and damages to property.Wireless Public Safety Networksexamines past communication failures that have directly contributed to the loss of lives.

This book will give readers a broad view of the PSNs field, analyzing the benefits PSNs may bring to society, the main challenges related to the establishment and maintenance of these networks, the latest advancements in the field, and future perspectives.

  • Discusses the ever changing requirements and impact of PSNs in mission critical scenarios
  • Analyzes the evolving methods required to meet the growing demand of capable public safety networks
  • Covers lessons learned and advances made to wireless communications to help prevent loss of lives and poor practice disaster management
