ESInet / Next Generation Core Services (NGCS)

Atos Next Generation 112 (NG112) solutions allow you to receive calls through different channels (voice, video, Text, RTT, eCall, PEMEA, apps, IoT devices...) into your call routing network, to quickly allocate emergency callers to the right Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Atos offers the only carrier-grade VoIP session controller for both call handling and emergency services routing, aligned with next-generation emergency calling standards (NG112 / NG911). Powering the Emergency Services IP network (ESInet) domain is Atos’ NGCS infrastructure, beginning with the OpenScape First Response Emergency Services Routing Proxy (ESRP), built from OpenScape Voice that supports ETSI/EMTEL and NENA standards for ESInet/NGCS. Capable of handling multi-media as well as voice calls, Atos' OpenScape First Response ESInet / NGCS solution is centered around the industry's only carrier-grade Emergency Services Routing Proxy capable of handling high call rates.

Complementing the OpenScape First Response Emergency Services Routing Proxy are the other Atos-provided Next-Generation Core Services Components:

  • OpenScape First Response Border Control Function (BCF) provides security functions at the border of the Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet).
  • OpenScape First Response Legacy PSAP Gateway (LPG) allows existing legacy PSAPs to receive emergency calls from a next-generation core services network.
  • OpenScape First Response Media Service Bridge Function provides call transfer and conferencing capabilities for voice, video and text calls.
  • OpenScape First Response Policy Store Server (PSS) supports the ESRPs Policy Routing Function by maintaining a central repository of policy routing rules.
  • OpenScape First Response Next Generation Logging Service (NGLS) supports logging of call events in order to provide a traceable call history database. The log event database and internal reporting engine provide standard and ad-hoc reports and dashboard views.

Combined with Atos’ third-party provided Emergency Call Routing Function (ECRF), Location Database (LDB) and Location Information Servers (LIS), your migration to a secure and managed ESInet/NGCS processing NG112 traffic is fully covered by Atos.

Emergency management

GEMMA is the Atos product to be used in PSAPs for single and multi-agency operations, and also by emergency and crisis response teams in the field, fitting the needs of public safety organizations in multiple domains.

It covers the entire incident management lifecycle, from responding to emergency communications and launching standard operational procedures to perform actions and dispatch resources, to following-up first-responder interventions and event escalation. GEMMA is available both on-premises and in the Cloud and is natively prepared for multi-agency and multi-jurisdiction operations in which actionable information must be shared securely and in real-time between different stakeholders.

Atos' call handling, CAD and resource management components integrate seamlessly with our ESInet / NGCS and OpenScape PSAP Call Engine based on OpenScape Voice, as well as other own and third-party products, including the Lifelink Multinet products. GEMMA has been chosen by public safety organizations around the world, for nationwide operations such as 112 Romania, for regions such as Aragon, Galicia or Extremadura in Spain, or for major cities such as Madrid or Paris.

• Atos has successfully launched its Multi Agency Incident Transfer (MAIT) solution, connecting the UK's Emergency Services Network through a fast and secure messaging system - minimizing response times.

Safe cities: How to use Big Data, Edge computing and Artificial Intelligence

Our solutions are about leveraging smart cities data and enriching them with artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things to ensure the public safety of the future. This can include data sources such as CCTV, smart buildings, smart lighting, traffic monitoring, parking monitoring audio detection, IoT devices and personal wearable devices. The goal is to make this pre-analyzed data available to call takers to accelerate the decision process and better inform the PSAP.

Atos Urban Data Platform is an innovative solution for cities that collects, stores and performs big data analytics from security and emergency information to provide intelligent incident response. By collecting and analyzing data from multiple open sources, this solution provides insights to trigger and manage a real-time response.

Predictive analytics optimize resource management, and the secure exchange of data between systems enhances inter-agency collaboration. For example, the platform can interface with GEMMA to keep the public informed of an incident, making it easier for emergency teams to operate.
