Communications for emergency services have been traditionally provided with dedicated radio technology (like TETRA), however mobile communications are gaining more popularity for these scenarios due to their availability, price and spectrum usage. This trend will be more accentuated in the following years with the appearance of 5G systems, that promises better figures in almost all the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of the system. LTE can provide many of the functionalities required by emergency services and is currently being evolved toward the 5G era by incorporating heterogeneous networking, over the top applications, network function virtualization and more. Q4Health project is focused on the preparation for market of a video application for first responders based on LTE by designing and executing several novel experiments in order to optimize the communications for this platform.
