Who should see this demo?

Attendees interested in optimizing situational awareness during emergency response, from field operations to EOC activities, should see this demo.

In the hours after a disaster, the single most important requirement for all emergency support functions is maintaining communications. A desirable infrastructure would allow field operators to stream Situational Awareness data, in real-time, back to the main Emergency Operations Center.

This demo describes such an infrastructure, which leverages SDN for resilience across degraded network segments, and it also shows a new Incident Command System which provides dashboard features within the EOC.
