NICE solution enhances security and safety by detecting mobile device location with high accuracy levels; enables operators to comply with E-911 and E-112 standards; network optimization and location based services
Ra’anana, Israel, February 2011 – NICE Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), the worldwide leader of intent-based solutions that extract insight to impact business performance, reduce financial risk and ensure safety and security, today announced that it will be demonstrating the advanced capabilities of its 3D Mobile Location Tracking solution, which include the provision of altitude information for both rural and dense urban environments, at the upcoming GSMA Mobile World Congress, to take place in Barcelona, Spain, from February 14th- 17th, 2011, booth B70, Hall 2.1.
The need for accurate mobile location information is critical in times such as accidents, fires and criminal activities. Nearly 90% of handset are not GPS-enabled resulting in great need for a solution that can provide highly accurate location tracking information. The NICE 3D Mobile Location Tracking solution meets this need, supporting homeland security (HLS) initiatives by automatically monitoring and analyzing mobile device location, enabling law enforcement agencies and intelligence organizations to perform post-incident investigations.
It enables compliance with the US’s Enhanced-911 (E-911) and the European Union’s E-112 regulations, which require wireless network operators to provide the latitude and longitude of callers, in order to know to which emergency services call center to route the call, and to where to send emergency services. The solution does this by obtaining highly accurate and reliable positioning results to quickly address incidents and comply with the US’s Federal Communication Commission (FCC) standards and EU guidelines. It helps national alert systems detect all mobile devices located within a given geographical area, including phones in idle mode, and automatically issue an alert in real-time. In addition, the NICE solution can be used to provide network optimization and location based services. It is software-based and requires no calibration or on-going vehicle network measurements (“drive test”) to ensure the solution’s reliability, which significantly reduces the cost of the deployment and ongoing operation.
NICE helps organizations achieve highly accurate and reliable 3D location positioning (X, Y and Z axes), in rural and urban environments, both indoors and outdoors, and interfaces with all cellular networks, including GSM, UMTS, CDMA and LTE to locate any cellular device.
Yossi Ofek, President of the NICE Intelligence Division, said, “The field proven NICE solution provides accurate 3D mobile location tracking capabilities. By being able to detect location with high accuracy levels and even identify the altitude of a device in dense urban environments, such as skyscrapers, government can ensure security. This capability enables service providers to ensure compliance with the latest and upcoming regulations. In addition, service providers can leverage the same technology for network optimization and location based services.”
