REDIRNET - Emergency Responder Data Interoperability Network, will provide a decentralized framework for interoperability for first responders’ systems based on a public meta-data gateway controlled by the agencies themselves via a REDIRNET socio-professional web. Agencies will be able link up to partner agencies of their choice and operational need; they will also be able to manage the scope of such interoperability. To help set up these link-up arrangements REDIRNET will be enhanced with semantic web methods in accordance with the vocabulary and processes of the user community. Inter-operating agencies will need only to develop one gateway (to REDIRNET) leading to a cost effective solution; agent technologies will also be developed to facilitate the integration of user systems into REDIRNET.

REDIRNET was presented during the HEK.SI ethical hacking/penetration testing conference with the presentation name Consideration of Security Aspects in Development of Europe-wide Data Interoperability Framework for Public Safety Agencies.
In order for REDIRNET to operate effectively and share data and information between connected users the need for current and straightforward integration procedures is an absolute requirement. REDIRNET has been configured so that such integration can be undertaken by end user organisations themselves or by any authorised 3rd party on their behalf. This short manual provides some basic integration guidelines for integrator teams to follow; for more in-depth integration guidance reference is to be made to the additional technical documentation for the whole REDIRNET platform, which can be found on this link .
Project REDIRNET attended the Annual BAPCO Spring International event held this year in Telford, UK on 22 and 23 March 2016. The project made 2 major contributions to the B-APCO event.
Firstly it provided the opening presentation at the event's important 'Technology Showcase Theatre' set in the centre of the exhibition area. Peter Dohanyos, the project's coordinator, provided a 40 minute presentation and question & answer session to a large audience of users and supplier personnel on the project's aims and objectives, its technical achievements and the project's plans for future development and its exploitation potential.The REDIRNET project team then subsequently also carried out a structured successful demonstration of its technical capabilities to a range of users, suppliers and interested parties including representatives from 5 countries (Australia, England, Czech republic, Scotland and Sweden) from Ambulance, Fire & Police agencies at regional and national levels; also in attendance was a major disaster specialist from Melbourne University and an insurance risk analyst expert. The demonstration proved successful with many searching questions arising and animated discussions taking place between attendees and project personnel.

REDIRNET project participates in first NG112 Communications Plugtest in Europe
21 March 2016 – REDIRNET project is happy to announce our participation in the first ever emergency communications interoperability Plugtests in Europe, 14-18 March in Sophia-Antipolis, France.
The event, organised by ETSI and EENA (the European Emergency Number Association) was designed to trial independently and jointly all components of the 112 communication chain based on NG112 networks. During the event, different items of the NG112 chain were put to the test.
We are proud our solutions were part of this event, and to have participated in this learning experience. Improving citizen access to emergency services is in our company’s core mission, and we will continue to optimise our products to do just that.
ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, aeronautical, broadcast and internet technologies and is officially recognized by the European Union as a European Standards Organization. ETSI is an independent, not-for-profit association whose almost 800 member companies and organizations, drawn from 64 countries, determine its work programme and participate directly in its work.
EENA, the European Emergency Number Association, is a Brussels-based NGO set up in 1999 dedicated to promoting high-quality emergency services reached by the number 112 throughout the EU. EENA serves as a discussion platform for emergency services, public authorities, decision makers, researchers, associations and solution providers with a view to improving the emergency response in accordance with citizens' requirements. EENA is also promoting the establishment of an efficient system for alerting citizens about imminent or developing emergencies.
The EENA memberships include more than 1200 emergency services representatives from over 80 countries world-wide, 75 solution providers, 15 international associations/organisations, more than 200 Members of the European Parliament and over 90 researchers.
