Nowadays there is a growing uncertainty about the near future evolution of classical PMR solutions due to spectrum scarcity, digital dividend issues and economic crisis.

The GERYON Project aims at facing this situation by seizing the existing window of opportunity due to the convergence of the IMS as a predominant enabler for future multimedia networks and the imminent deployment of commercial LTE networks. GERYON proposes an innovative emergency inter-networking system capable of connecting existing first responder communication systems and enabling the integration of next generation mobile networks by defining technology independent standardized interfaces and autonomic configuration and adaptation techniques under the umbrella of IMS.

GERYON demonstrates both classical (i.e. PTT, MTP and preemptive calls) and enhanced emergency services (i.e. multimedia streaming and data services) over an across-frontier testbed. Furthermore, its capability for including general purpose IMS terminals and GERYON enhanced ones allows an easy access to first responder networks to different groups of unprotected users such as elderly people, people with special needs and battered women that will take advantage of enhanced services such as the “Red Button” over general purpose device.

Within the GERYON Project, VIOTECH is the main technical contributor for the following tasks:
• Specification & validation of the Home Gateway application requirements and IMS set-up;
• Design and implementation of the application software layer;
• Design and implementation of the video adaptation hardware modules;
• Integration of the hardware and software layers for the GERYON demonstrator.
