About the Model:
The model was initially developed and maintained by the Public Safety Communication Project Group of the Wireless Networks Division (WND) at the Communication Technology Laboratory (CTL) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) - U.S. Department of Commerce. For further information about the research conducted by the group, please refer to the following website: https://www.nist.gov/programs-projects/network-modeling-public-safety-communications
The integration of the initial ProSe module with the LTE and buildings module, as well as the creation of additional examples and tests, and contributions to on-network MCPTT support, was assisted by CTTC and the University of Washington. This work was performed under the financial assistance award 70NANB17H170 and 70NANB20H179 from U.S. Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology.
