Emergency Apps publication: Protocols & procedures for the Pan-European Mobile Emergency Application
This publication comes as a follow-up to the “Pan-European Mobile Emergency Application (PEMEA) Requirements and Functional Architecture” technical document.
The document defines the protocols, information elements, rules and procedures necessary to implement the PEMEA architecture and requirements specification. It provides the XML schema implementing the message flows as well specifying the transport protocol, associated security measures and, where necessary, explicit procedures for functional entities to perform. Please note that the reader of this document is expected to be familiar with the PEMEA requirements and functional architecture document and able to read and understand XML schema.
EENA would like to thank Mr. James Winterbottom, Vice-Chair of the EENA Technical Committee, for his work and dedication to this publication.
