U-2010 project stands for ubiquitous IP centric Government & Enterprise Next Generation Networks Vision 2010 and its overall objective is to provide the most capable means of communication and the most effective access to information to everybody required to act in case of accident, incident, catastrophe or crisis, while using existing or future telecommunication infrastructures.
The u-2010 project will address the public safety issues by researching new emergency and crisis management solutions investigating on innovative and state-of-the-art communication technologies based on the current and new Internet technologies (i.e. Internet Protocol version 6 – IPv6) that could be put to use and realize this vision.
Technologies in operations and under evaluation are:
- enhance the availability of the collection of services by use of all existing networks
- leveraging redundant communication channels
- using automatic redirection and/or transformation of communications in case of network failures
- using new research results in the area of wireless and ad hoc networks.
