Delivers Internet of Things smart data to emergency responders throughout the US
Gemalto, provider of digital security, is delivering actionable, up to the minute Internet of Things (IoT) data to first responders in the emergency services field.
Working with Intrado, a leading provider of 9-1-1 technology solutions, Gemalto’s cloud-based SensorLogic Application Enablement Platform translates important data and sends alerts to emergency teams to improve response times and outcomes, while continuously monitoring developments as they occur.
Data from remote sensors is collected by Gemalto’s SensorLogic Application Enablement Platform, which transforms it into easy to use information, then 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 is always at the user’sfingertips, including dynamic weather conditions, video footage from IP cameras and GPS location of incidents. The constant flow of information gives first responders a better understanding of complex emergency situations allowing them to arrive prepared to execute rescue missions, stated Gemalto.
Said Kevin Coyne, VP of product at Intrado: “We selected Gemalto technology based on its wide range of expertise in IoT projects of all sizes. 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.”
Added Meena Krishnan, VP at Prodapt M2M/IoT services: “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 and mobile applications. 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.”
Gemalto’s Juan Carlos Lazcano, VP of M2M for North America, concluded: “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. 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.”
