LONGMONT, Colo. -- Intrado Inc. (NASDAQ: TRDO), a leading provider of integrated data and telecommunications solutions, today introduced a range of new safety and security offerings that enable international wireless operators to provide enhanced emergency communication and notification services for their subscribers worldwide.

Developed by Intrado subsidiary bmd wireless, these innovative offerings support emergency and commercial location-based services and provide an immediate solution for operators within the European Union member states looking to meet the European Commission’s E112 directive to make caller location information available to authorities handling emergencies. The new capabilities include:

  • A cost effective, low maintenance and operationally efficient Gateway Mobile Location Center (GMLC) that offers wireless operators push and pull location-based services.

  • SS7 interfaces to receive and retrieve location information from the core network.

  • IP interfaces based on Location Interoperability Forum / Open Mobile Alliance (LIF/OMA) specifications.

  • Direct termination of time critical and high volume emergency alerts via SMS text messages.

  • Open standard software and hardware architecture modules for future enhancements and service creation.

“These new solutions demonstrate Intrado’s commitment to supporting the needs of the international emergency communication and mobility services market,” said George Heinrichs, Intrado chief executive officer. “The combination of Intrado’s experience and knowledge in developing the North American 9-1-1 infrastructure and bmd wireless’ expertise in developing core network solutions for the international wireless infrastructure allows us to deliver a solution that can be deployed by operators globally.”
