  The 5G and beyond advancements will impact significantly the evolution of many vertical industries such as the Public Protection and Disaster Recovery (PPDR) sector. To this end, the requirements posed by PPDR operations and services can be satisfied to a certain great degree by 5G network capabilities associated with network slicing and incorporation of edge computing, while network coverage and availability even in disaster situations still remains a critical issue. However, the flexibility of 5G networks and the beyond 5G developments related to network and service orchestration can further lead the PPDR service provisioning. The 5G-PPP project Int5Gent aims at delivering a complete beyond 5G solution suitable for various PPDR operational scenarios, namely for day-to-day operations and for disaster scenarios; along with experimentation deployments for testing and evaluation. This paper discusses the service and technical requirements and provides an overview of the proposed technologies and deployment solutions.
