The paper contributes to the evolution of Public Safety and Disaster Relief (PSDR) communications by specifying a solution for interoperability and integration among Professional Mobile Radio systems (TETRA and Simulcast), public systems (GSM/GPRS/UMTS), and broadband wireless technologies, such as WiMAX. A policy for PSDR services scheduling and fundamental guidelines for mapping the quality of service over heterogeneous networks are presented. Hence, the paper outlines the key issues to be debated by a regulatory authority. Operation of the devised PSDR mobile integration solution is tested to ensure complete connectivity among users adopting different communication standards, as well as to enable distributed services provisioning guaranteeing always best connection to bandwidth demanding applications provided by an IP-based core network. Finally, the employment of the envisaged integration platform is detailed in Mobile Ad-Hoc and Wireless Sensor Networks.
