BroadWay will set a European broadband mobile system for public protection and disaster relief

The PPDR4Europe consortium, led by Leonardo (European leader for mission-critical systems) and formed by Proef, Ubiwhere and Vodafone Portugal, will develop an interoperable European mobile network solution for police forces and security operators, which will allow broadband voice, data and video communications, with high levels of security and reliability, using satellite and 5G communications.
 Currently, each European country has its communication system for first responders and public safety services, which limits international cooperation. To solve this limitation, the BroadWay project seeks to enable operational mobility for public safety responders across Europe by linking the several mission-critical mobile networks, to work as one.

Eleven partners from eleven European Countries set the team responsible for the BroadWay project. From European Ministries (such as the Ministries of the Interior of Italy, France and Spain) to national entities accountable for the public order and citizen protection and agencies for first-responder communications from each country involved.  The team is called Group of Procurers, led by the Belgian telecom operator of emergency and security services ASTRID, and was responsible for selecting and assigning the project activity to the PPDR4Europe consortium.

Currently, each European country has its communication system for first responders and public safety services, which limits international cooperation. To solve this limitation, the BroadWay project seeks to enable operational mobility for public safety responders across Europe by linking the several mission-critical mobile networks, to work as one.

The main objective of BroadWay is to establish a pan-European interoperable broadband mobile system for public protection and disaster relief, for different entities of emergency response to communicate in an efficient, fast and reliable way. It will be possible to offer citizens a prompt response to critical situations (namely terrorist attacks, natural catastrophes, public safety issues, etc).
