Technological advancements, including the widespread adoption of voice over IP and location based services, can open up new ways for service providers to respond to emergency calls. As communication moves beyond voice and conventional text telephony, the emergency services of the future could create sessions of any media type negotiated between the caller and the Public Safety Answering Point, using SIP protocol mechanisms
Before this can become a reality, several issues have to be addressed. Will regulatory policies shift with the push for emergency services to be carried out over the Internet? And will common international standards be in place to ensure safe and reliable emergency communications that work anytime, anywhere?
The Asia Pacific Emergency Services workshop brings participants into the dialogue with world industry experts to examine the trends, policies and issues shaping emergency services.
