Gemalto has set up a solution that delivers up-to-the minute data to first responders in the field throughout the USA. The company is working with Intrado, a provider of 9-1-1 technology solutions, to use Gemalto's cloud-based SensorLogic Application Enablement Platform to translate important data and send alerts to emergency teams.
The aim is to provide a service that improve response times and outcomes, while continuously monitoring developments as they occur.
The way it works is that data from remote sensors is collected by Gemalto's SensorLogic Application Enablement Platform, which transforms it into easy-to-use information, while Intrado's middleware, developed with assistance from Prodapt, automatically sends it to first responders via a secure web portal and SMS alerts.
Through an app on a smartphone, tablet or other connected device, live information from operations can be sent to personnel in the field, including dynamic weather conditions, video footage from IP cameras and GPS location of incidents.
The constant flow of information is designed to give first responders a better understanding of complex emergency situations allowing them to arrive prepared to execute rescue missions.
"We selected Gemalto technology based on their wide range of expertise in IoT projects of all sizes," said Kevin Coyne, VP of Product at Intrado. "With proven technology and support from Gemalto plus our longstanding experience in emergency services, our solution makes it easy to go from concept to field deployment."
"After the detailed evaluation, we chose Gemalto's SensorLogic platform, which helped us as a system integrator to develop, integrate with devices and deploy the Emergency Aware Services - both web & mobile applications," said Meena Krishnan, Vice President, Prodapt M2M/IoT Services. "With well-defined APIs, test bed and round-the-clock technical support, Prodapt was able to assist Intrado with the end-to-end implementation using SensorLogic platform seamlessly."
"The SensorLogic cloud-based M2M solution gives safety and rescue teams more actionable data to pull from when they are making decisions on day-to-day activities or during time-sensitive and urgent response situations," said Juan Carlos Lazcano, Vice President of M2M for North America at Gemalto.
"Our flexible and ruggedised platform can work across many use-cases depending on the need whether it is mission critical, track or trace, or even a more connected experience when camping."
