“For a First Responder to help you, they firstly have to find you.”

With the accelerated growth in technology, digitization, and automation across the globe the Emergency Number Network needs to keep pace.

Today over 80% of all emergency calls emanate from a mobile device, and this figure will continue to rise. But believe it or not, still in 2021, locating that 9-1-1/112/999 mobile caller presents a huge challenge. Accurate verifiable dispatchable location, or a physical “door to knock on” during an emergency event, is not available, contrary to what many in our industry would have you believe.

Each year, tens of thousands of lives are lost globally when Responders are unable to locate a mobile caller accurately or promptly. All current emergency location methodologies being used today do not provide a verifiable civic address (aka dispatchable address) for a mobile caller, and this impedes the efficiency and effectiveness of our service.

The goal for our Emergency Number Network is a “dispatchable location” which translates location data into a specific street address, floor, and room number of an emergency caller. All this whilst being interoperable, cost efficient and compliant with a country’s privacy/security regulations, laws, and existing infrastructures.

Dispatchable location/address is the industry “gold standard” since no responder likes guessing if they need to kick down a door to save a stroke victim or arriving 30 mins too late when someone is having a heart attack….

Today, there is a methodology which offers the final piece to the location accuracy puzzle. It has been thoroughly real-world tested to ensure operational capacity across different networks, existing telecommunication infrastructures and handset manufacturers, with outstanding accuracy results…

We are ELi Technology, and our tag-based location methodology is “Emergency Mobile Location (EML). EML uses the existing Wi-Fi infrastructure, to offer two pieces of crucial localization information:

  • GPS coordinates

AND

  • the complete dispatchable address, from a trusted authoritative source, including the vital indoor and vertical location data.
  •  

EML encompasses the life-saving location information the Emergency Number Network needs, without compromising any of the crucial data privacy, security, or sovereignty concerns.

EML provides:

  • Accurate, real-time, indoor, rural, and urban location
  • A verified, dispatchable civic address, including floor, apartment, or room number
  • GPS, latitude, and longitude
  • Depending upon handset capability, a vertical reference.

The accurate location element provided by EML will also allow for Next Generation call routing and additional Next Generation ESN Services plus VoIP, social media, and accessibility for persons with impairments and disabilities…

ELi Technology, through EML, wants to help the Emergency Number Network save more lives with better mobile localization.
