Cooperative Mobile High-Speed and Personal Area Networks for the Provision of Pervasive E-Health Services

This paper studies the performance of a joint network comprised of a high-speed Third-Generation (3.5G) networking technology, HSPA (High Speed Packet Access), wireless sensors, and satellite network for delivering crisis management and emergency e-health applications under urgent situations via satellite backhauling. The authors propose an emergency system architecture for performance assessment based on the joint transmission of voice, real-time video, vital data (such one electrocardiogram, vital signals and heart sounds) and healthcare records file transfer between the disaster-site and the safe-site.
