HP and Intrado Collaborate on 9-1-1

Intrado will use HP's server technology to power its next-generation 9-1-1 system, which is being developed to address expanding public safety needs across the U.S. The companies plan to develop a highly secure, scalable and efficient HP server platform to support the Intrado Intelligent Emergency Network. The system is being designed to support VoIP and other emerging technologies.

Intrado said its next generation system could enable a 9-1-1 caller to transmit a photo of a suspect taken with a cell phone directly to a 9-1-1 call taker. That image, along with other pertinent information, could then be instantly available to a wider set of responders and responding agencies at all levels of government, thus increasing efficiency and control in a crisis situation.

Intrado's current 9-1-1 infrastructure runs on HP NonStop, AlphaServer running Tru64 UNIX and HP 9000 servers running the HP-UX operating environment as well as HP OpenCall software. With the introduction of the Intelligent Emergency Network, Intrado also will leverage HP Integrity servers to handle demanding new 9-1-1 applications. http://www.intrado.com
