FR-Alert: mobile operators in Overseas France join forces with Intersec to implement the new alert system

Paris, France, May 31, 2022 - Intersec, selected by the French Ministry of the Interior and the major national mobile operators, is also joining forces with most of the overseas operators following a series of tenders to provide the new public warning system, FR-Alert. 

In the event of a major incident, the authorities will be able to send out targeted and contextualized alerts to all affected areas, including the most remote. The population will be better informed about the risk, the situation, and the safety recommendations to follow thanks to this method.

Overseas territories of France are physically exposed to natural hazards, which can have severe consequences for the population and infrastructure. In this instance, high-intensity weather events occur frequently in the tropical regions where many of the Overseas territories are located. Because natural disasters are unavoidable, the FR-Alert system will be a vital tool for practically the whole population. In addition to natural disasters, all public safety issues are covered by this system such as industrial accidents, health crises, terrorist attacks, and technological incidents. On the eve of the 2024 Olympic Games and its large gatherings, the need for such a system is indisputable to ensure the safety of local populations, sports delegations and thousands of visitors expected, especially on the Polynesian island of Tahiti, which will host the Olympic surfing events.

Yann Chevalier, Intersec's CEO, said: "These new mandates illustrate the trust that our staff has earned, as well as the quality and dependability of our public alerting solution. We are especially happy to collaborate with mobile operators in Overseas France as FR-Alert deployment is guaranteed in all French territories around the world.”

Intersec 5G-ready geolocation platform accelerates positioning use case enablement

Paris, France, January 18th,  2022 / PR Newswire / ("Intersec" or the "Company"), a global leader in mobility and activity data solutions, announced the acceleration of the adoption of its 5G-ready Agora platform by tier-one Communication Service Providers around the world, enabling them to monetize new 5G positioning use cases, in compliance with data privacy regulations. The platform has already been selected by tier-one telecom operators in France, Canada, Emirates, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Thailand, Vietnam and, Hong Kong.

“The arrival of 5G opens a wide range of geolocation use cases for mobile operators, public authorities, media, manufacturing, automotive, and transportation industries,” said Intersec CEO Yann Chevalier. “Performance requirements in terms of accuracy, availability, latency, and reliability encourage operators to go beyond connectivity and capitalize on new revenue streams to seize sustainable growth opportunities”.

The Intersec platform collects anonymized location datasets on a mass scale, computes insights, detects pre-defined or machine-learned patterns in real-time, and triggers relevant instant actions. By bringing its positioning accuracy down to the meter thanks to 5G, it enables CSPs to fully leverage top-of-the-shelf location-based applications, unlock monetization opportunities with existing use cases, and seamlessly plug in any new and disruptive use cases.

Over the past 12 years, Intersec has developed a comprehensive catalog of active and passive geolocation integration schemes, providing cellular, subcellular, and indoor accuracy. 5G achieves unprecedented precision thanks to the use of millimeter waves and beamforming, unleashing the potential of the RF Fingerprinting technology. By combining those geolocation techniques in the 5G ecosystem, the Intersec platform enables a higher spatial and temporal accuracy, optimizes network resources, reduces blind spots, and provides enhanced tracking capabilities.

For more information, Intersec experts will be hosting a 5G geolocation webinar on February 15th.

Croatia chooses Intersec GeoSafe for its new national public warning system

Paris, France, November 23, 2021 – Croatia has selected Intersec’s GeoSafe technology as the basis for its new national public warning system (PWS). The decision sees Croatia adopting a best practice response to the European mandate that all EU member states must implement a modern digital public warning system by June 2022

Ingolf Ruh, Chief Revenue Officer, for Intersec says: 

“The Croatian government wanted the best technology possible in order to serve its population in a crisis. Simply complying with the European regulations regarding public warning systems was not enough: they wanted to innovate and prepare for the future. As part of an end-to-end solution that enables government and network operators to work seamlessly together from the outset, GeoSafe will deliver a public warning system for Croatia that will keep citizens informed and protected for many years to come.” 

Croatia has a population of over 4 million but attracts almost five times as many tourists annually (19.6 million in 2019). Croatia’s Ministry of the Interior and Civil Protection Directorate (MoI/CPD) was tasked with improving its current processes and introducing new communication channels to provide a single national system to alert citizens and visitors during a crisis. A key requirement was the ability to target specific segments of the population in real-time using mobile messaging, dependent on their (changing) position relative to the crisis.

Using a combination of cell broadcast and location-based SMS, Intersec GeoSafe provides the technology that will enable the MoI/CPD to provide early warning and subsequent crisis communications in case of national emergencies such as floods, fires, epidemics, or terrorist incidents. Providing critical alert aggregation capability, its powerful data processing will enable anonymized geolocation data to be used to provide the best possible information in an emergency. The system will also help to track whether messages have been received and how people are responding. GeoSafe can differentiate between users of Croatian mobile networks and foreign national operators, so crisis communications can be sent in foreign languages, in real-time, without violating personal data protection regulations.

Intersec partnered with Croatian companies King ICT and GDI to respond to the competitive tender. As one of four businesses bidding for the project, the Intersec consortium won by proving that its system was technically superior, offered robust data anonymization processes for maintaining citizen privacy, and could deliver a cost-efficient, future-proof solution at both governmental and network operator levels. 

All three national telecommunications operators in Croatia have confirmed their participation in the project, thereby ensuring coverage of the entire Republic of Croatia, and enabling the government to reach up to 100% of mobile device users.
