The paper presents the main results and conclusions of the recently completed FP7 EU project entitled “Public Protection and Disaster Relief – Transformation Centre” – PPDR-TC. The major objective of PPDR-TC project was to provide the strategic roadmap towards the full migration path of future PPDR system’s evolution satisfying the mid and long-term requirements for the next 10-15 years. In order to cope with this goal PPDR-TC established a modular study approach with several building blocks. In addition, PPDR-TC project produced a series of techno-economical recommendations, supported by a comprehensive set of simulations and field trials to prepare a transition roadmap from current voice-centred PPDR networks to broadband-capable communication systems.
