Q4Health Project Facts
of Service and Prioritisation for Emergency Services in the LTE RAN stack

  • Three Partners – RedZinc Services Limited, Eurecom, University of Malaga
  • 2 years Innovation Action, Starting 1 January 2016
  • Q4HEALTH project is an innovation action focused on the optimization of real-time video for emergency services over LTE.
  • The project is implemented as a set of experiments conducted over the FIRE platforms PerformLTE and OpenAirInterface
  • Challenge – how to optimize wearable LTE video
  • 8 Experiments
  • Evaluation of 20 KPIs for wearable video



  Experiment Experiment Name
EPC Experiment A Application to EPC Service Control

  Evolution of the Rx interface using OpenFlow

Experiment B Application Controlled In Building Handover

  Between LTE pico cells, small cells and Wi-Fi

Experiment C Group Video over OpenFlow at Adjacent Macro Cell

  OpenFlow to support group sharing  of video/audio directly to adjacent eNodeB without trombone to EPC

Access Experiment D Scheduling Optimisation for Priority Video

  Scheduling programmability through API allowing application-specific resource allocation

Experiment E UE Antenna evaluation

  Comparison of belt mounted wearable antenna

Showcase Experiment F Integrated Experiment to showcase optimal features

  Validation of all features with end to end validation and showcase
