While designed to be simple, the Handbook is comprehensive, compact and contains useful factual information that is concise and organized for easy access, in particular by practitioners.



Private Networks

The term “private network” is used here to describe communications facilities available to specialized users like fire brigades, police, ambulances, utilities, emergency teams, civil protection, transport, government, ministries, and defence. These networks can also be used by business, corporate, and industry users. The network is usually owned by the private users themselves who can share it eventually in a multi – organizational environment. The users usually manage their private network, in some cases an operator can do it for his private customers.
