Epidemic clusters had become a challenge for disease control, becoming a serious burden for hospitals. The challenge was to get stakeholders involved as quickly as possible and be able to communicate in real-time regarding the incident thanks to situational awareness via density maps and other means.
To be the most effective in preventing further spread, the data has to be low-latency, real-time data, which shows how these anonymous mobile phones are moving, and to immediately and proactively determine the location hubs of increasing population density.
Mobility data-based tools allow authorities to automatically determine where large gatherings were forming via the geographic density of the mobile phone locations. The Intersec fast data capabilities overcame all technical challenges around the anonymous tracking and tracing at scale:
- Performing event stream processing on 500,000 anonymous location events every second for over 30 million mobile phones
- Visualization, in real-time of subscribers from a local to a national scale, with heatmaps/choropleths
- Making a dataset of 2 petabytes of reference data and historical data available for further analysis and investigation with ultra-low latency, on the order of milliseconds
- Scoring: a rating scale to identify the at-risk populations
- Prediction: insights utilized to predict scenarios, decide where to send medical staff, identify people likely to get sick, and streamline medical operations
As a result of our use of the Intersec platform, we have been able to provide the Asia-Pacific authorities with instantaneous, precise location data that saves lives and prevents additional evolution of the pandemic.

Roaming data used to be an expensive luxury that most mobile subscribers thought wistfully about before traveling, making it a dying business for many mobile operators. Instead, this Canadian telecom operator wanted to turn this into an opportunity to increase their subscribers’ engagement with the brand and boost their top-line revenues by sending out relevant, proactive, and contextualized communications to travelers roaming abroad.
Intersec’s advanced geolocation and segmentation features allowed the telecom operator to reach out to their customers at the airport right before they switch off their mobile phones in a relevant and contextualized manner, personalize the customer experience, and dramatically improve the engagement of their subscribers before and while roaming abroad.
After only 3 months, here's what the telecom operator observed:
A conversion rate multiplied by 4
A 7% increase of the average uptake rate
A 10% increase of roaming revenues
I am not into switching suppliers just for a better deal. I prioritize building good relationships. Intersec has a very solid product to manage over 10 million subscribers in Canada. They are really committed to achieving the very best for their customers.
Location data has been commonly used by operators for QoS purpose and rarely monetized in commercial use cases. Deriving insights and additional customer characteristics out of location data was not intuitive and straightforward task.
Thanks to Intersec's advanced location platform, collecting mass scale location data with high accuracy and processing it in real time enabled Rogers to build innovative marketing campaigns
Customers were tagged based on location data and stop segments using Intersec's campaign builder.
By keeping such campaigns running over time helped gain confidence and reduce false positives
Once identified, customer traits are being utilized in cross-/up- sell activities pushing roaming and data passes in some cases and targeting customers with relevant information such movies based on their characteristics
