BroadWay has released a Prior Information Notice (PIN), inviting innovative suppliers to help the BroadWay Group of Procurers to better understand the state-of-the-art and market status of broadband mobile for public safety.
BroadWay is a team of 11 procurers from 11 European countries comprised of national ministries and agencies responsible for communication services used by 1.4Million public safety responders across Europe. They have come together with the common challenge to procure innovation activity to enable a pan-European broadband mobile system for use by our public safety responders.
BroadWay invites innovative suppliers to help the BroadWay Group of Procurers to better understand the state-of-the-art and market status of broadband mobile for public safety.
Disasters, Crime and Terrorism are not confined to geopolitical borders. Those who protect and rescue us, should be able to talk, share and access information, wherever they are, and whenever they need to. It is clear in these difficult times that we need to enhance European resilience to such threats; to enable our first responders with better communication technologies than the ones available to the bad guys, and with a resilience to cope with difficult crisis situations. Our responders save our citizens against the perils of disaster, crime and terrorism on a daily basis.
Briefing events will be held online on the 20th July and 9th August, with 2 briefing meetings to be held in Brussels, on 13th and 18th September. An online questionnaire will be open until 21st September to allow potential suppliers to give us their opinions.
