Radio communication is crucial for Public and Governmental Security (P&GS) systems. No matter if a police officer waits for a radio message to get to his next scene or a firefighter needs to contact the operator, there will always be the need for a reliable, secure and fast radio communication structure. Besides the legacy requirements, however, there are also increasing demands for the radio devices: they shall be interoperable to other unit devices which perhaps support a completely different system, shall be connected to the World Wide Web and shall support new applications like video conferencing, file transfer, or access to email.
