Abstract: The paper describes the need for, and work in progress to provide the French population with
a modern emergency communication infrastructure that uses open source components to
deliver real time communications from smart phones as well as traditional routes.
The article puts forward the vision of the NexSIS 18-112 project aimed at designing and
implementing the next generation AI enhanced emergency services response platform for
France. The vision and ambition of the NexSIS 18-112 system is to rewrite the command and
control system from scratch at a national level, providing it with state of the art functionalities.
Anticipating the future deployment of 5G networks, the work described in the article explains
how to ensure the transition of the legacy emergency operation systems to an operational IPbased
model, capable of offering voice, video, Instant Messaging, and Real Time Text (RTT)
services to emergency servicesí operators.
