Overview

Preferential Emergency Communications: From Telecommunications to the Internet, a professional monograph, is divided into three sections. The first describes systems and protocols that have been deployed as private networks for use by government agencies like the U.S. Department of Defense. This section also presents an in-depth discussion on MLPP. We then present current work in the area of Land Mobile Radio, commonly used by local emergency personnel such as police and fireman. This second section also describes systems that have been deployed over the public switched telephone network. Finally, the third section presents insights on trying to support emergency communications over TCP/IP networks and the Internet. In this last item we look into what IETF protocols can be considered candidates for change, as well as those protocols and applications that should not be altered.
