The Europe’s nExt generation eMergencY commuNicatiOnS (EMYNOS) project final demonstration took place 31 January in Bucharest, Romania, with the support of Romanian Special Telecommunications Service (STS). After two years of progress, the next-generation emergency communications services was successfully integrated with the legacy emergency system managed by STS.

Next-generation emergency communications components such as rich media, support for persons with disabilities and improved caller location were tested via a variety of uses cases and scenarios including:
• Pure next-generation 1-1-2 (NG 1-1-2) calls with caller location, audio, video, real-time text and sensor data
• Emergency calls from assistive technologies and haptic devices
• Emergency calls over satellite
• NG 1-1-2 calls toward emergency legacy systems

The demonstration involved more than 35 external participants from public authorities, actors of emergency communications services and representatives of the National Deaf Association from Romania.

The results generated as part of EMYNOS are expected to become a starting point for further activities in the context of research, development, integration and testing of next-generation emergency services. In addition, the outcomes of the project should become an incentive to regulators and users to respectively enforce the necessary policies and speed up deployment of such services.

Previous EMYNOS demonstrations and testing activities were conducted in Poland, Turkey and Austria.
