Welcome to the sixth EAB bulletin. Since EAB Bulletin #5, there have been three General Assembly meetings, two held in Paris; 5-7 February and 2-3 June and one in Duisburg 4-5 September. It provided the opportunity for Work Package leaders to brief on the progress of their activities and to address issues that require collective inputs. In addition, the project held a successful mid-term review with the EU Project Officer in Brussels on 27 Jun.
This bulletin has been produced following the last project meeting (#6) in Duisburg. The last project meeting took place the 4th and 5th of September 2014 in Duisburg. Technical discussions occurred during this meeting as well as first thoughts concerning the final demonstration. EAB members’ inputs for this final demonstration will be important and so we plan to have an EAB meeting in October in order to discuss the scenarios we envisaged for the final demonstration. Aditionall details about the work progess in all the Work Packages are available in the ABSOLUTE newsletter.

Public Safety Future Networks: Industry and Stakeholder views on Emerging Technologies, Standardisation Status & Regulatory Issues
Wireless communications technologies play an important role in emergency and disaster relief situations. Innovative technological solutions are needed to increase data throughputs and interoperability for Public Safety Future Networks. In U.S frequency bands have been identified for Broadband Public Safety services and U.S. made the choice of LTE-A for the new products dedicated to public safety . What is the role of European industry and FP7 research in this field? Which new architectures and networks are needed for a fast deployment in large disasters?
