Emergency services are among the most fundamental and critical services to be offered by telecommunications networks. As countless new applications arise in heterogeneous network environments, there is an urge of adaption in Next Generation Networks to serve all kind of emergency situations with the appropriated Quality of Service. In earlier times, call signaling on a circuit-switched network proved sufficient to provide preferential treatment and ensure suitable Quality of Service. However, since Next Generation Networks are based on packet-switched technology – which is fundamentally different from circuit-switched technology – there is a need to consider the technical issues and potential solutions that could prove themselves useful in the improvement and realization of emergency telecommunications capabilities in Next Generation Networks.
