"Arizona Partnership Agreement"
PROJECT MESA Broadband Mobility for Emergency and Safety Applications <Speaker> <title> <email address> SEM27-03 Brief History Recognized that ETSI and TIA were independently working on similar projects Challenges faced by PPDR professionals are similar throughout the world In May 2000 ETSI and TIA signed in Washington DC an agreement (the PPA - Partnership Project Agreement) to work collaboratively by providing a forum using the “Partnership Project” model that was used in 3G First named Public Safety Partnership Project (PSPP) In January 2001 the current partnership agreement was ratified in the City of Mesa (Arizona) Project’s name given in recognition of the signature city MESA = Mobility for Emergency and Safety Applications 2002 first documents published with Statement of Requirements (SoR) 2005 System Overview and revision of SoR completed Brief History Project MESA is a transatlantic public safety partnership between ETSI (Europe) and TIA (North America) that represents the first international initiative to involve users and organizations from the Public Safety, Disaster Response and Civil Defence sectors Recognized that ETSI and TIA were independently working on similar projects Challenges faced by PPDR professionals are similar throughout the world In May 2000 ETSI and TIA signed in Washington DC an agreement (the PPA - Partnership Project Agreement) to work collaboratively by providing a forum in which the key players can contribute actively to the elaboration of MESA specifications In January 2001 the current partnership agreement was ratified in the City of Mesa (Arizona) Project’s name given in recognition of the signature city MESA = Mobility for Emergency and Safety Applications 2002 first documents published with Statement of Requirements (SoR) 2005 System Overview and revision of SoR completed Observers : • the Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) of Korea • the Telecommunications Standards Advisory Council of Canada (TSACC) Objectives MESA aims at producing globally applicable technical specifications for digital mobile broadband technology, aimed initially at the sectors of public safety and disaster response allowing a co-ordination of regional/international responses to emergencies, disasters and monitoring day-by-day services Project MESA Goal is to coordinate capabilities/develop technology specifications for interoperable mobile broadband data for Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) Auto-establishing, self-healing, robust, ad-hoc networking Bit rates above 2 Mbits/sec Independent of radio spectrum Secure end-to-end transparent encryption Seamless switching to global broadband infrastructure Enhanced access and terminal capabilities Main MESA Technical System Features To fulfil user requirements MESA systems must be: reliable able to ensure multiple levels of security and encryption easy and fast to deploy able to guarantee the requested Quality of Service (QoS) flexible • adaptable • reconfigurable • scalable self-organizing interoperable with existing private and public infrastructures broadband mobile low-power consumable able to locate nodes, sensors, robots … Activities ETSI and TIA support the administrative needs while the technical work required to develop the Project MESA specifications is performed by members Members meet every 6 months (alternating between European and North American venues) to coordinate program activities and to review project documents for approval Between the meetings, members coordinate specification development and other activities primarily during phone conferences and through e-mail Structure Organizational Partners Liaison Standardization bodies + EU & USA Projects MESA SC (Steering Committee) Service Specification Group Technical Specification Group Services & Applications System SSG SA TSG SYS System Technical Specifications Structure Service Specification Group - Services and Applications (SSG – SA) i.e. USERS WRITE WHAT THEY NEED !

Next meeting (MESA #12) • 4 - 7 April 2006 in Boston - USA hosted by Airvana participation to meetings is between 40 and 50 delegates Electronic working on Mailing lists available for all the groups and open to the everyone MESA system of systems approach Develop MESA capabilities as a “system of systems” maximizing usage of existing communications technologies and MESA infrastructures. CAPABLE SYSTEM MESA specification development is taking a technology neutral approach and resulting implementations may involve private and/or commercial technology and systems, along with new technologies still under development.
