'PEMEA Architecture' document published by EENA Technical Committee

There are presently hundreds of emergency calling applications in use across Europe but none of them permit seamless roaming and so are constrained in where they can be used.

The aim of the PEMEA architecture is to allow a user to select an application that meets their needs based on functionality, cost and levels of comfort with proper security and privacy setting and provide accurate location and other information to emergency services in a time of need, anywhere across Europe.


This document describes a functional architecture, requirements and data flows to support existing application providers and PSAP service providers to communicate with other providers and so enable mobile emergency calling applications to operate while roaming anywhere in Europe.

EENA would like to thank Mr. James Winterbottom, EENA Technical Committee Vice-Chair, for his valuable contributions to this publication.
