Valtellina Reduces Communications Network Data Production Time With Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Software

2.5.2017 10:00  

Valtellina SpA, one of the largest communications systems integration companies in Italy, has implemented Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s advanced telecommunications GIS software, Intergraph G/Technology Fiber Optic Works, to support the design and implementation of fiber networks. Using Hexagon’s software, Valtellina has been able to reduce network data preparation and production time from 10 days to less than an hour.

Valtellina’s engineering services aid many large communications operators in Italy, such as Telecom Italia and Infratel Italia, a company of the Ministry of Economic Development tasked with increasing broadband connectivity throughout Italy. The data Valtellina and other engineering companies must deliver to Infratel after designing communications networks is a mix of complex computer-aided design (CAD) drawings and Microsoft Excel files, which required days of manual work to prepare and produce. Using Hexagon’s Fiber Optic Works, including an add-on module developed specifically for the needs of engineering companies working with Infratel, Valtellina has automated its data preparation and production.

“This is the best investment we could have made,” said Giacomo Ghilardi, TLC business unit manager, Valtellina SpA. “Not only has Hexagon’s software enabled quicker network design in a distributed, controlled environment, it has also reduced data production time from days to minutes.”

Fiber Optics Works enhances the complete life cycle of civil infrastructure and fiber network management – from design and construction through maintenance and operations. It ensures Valtellina can work with standardized processes, formats and layouts. It also provides the company with distributed network design and collaboration among multiple concurrent users, including subcontractors who are provided with controlled access to the system.

Valtellina selected Hexagon because of the company’s extensive references in the communications industry, including global and European operators and Italian companies, such as Asco Tlc, Retelit, BT Enia and Vodafone Italia. Other factors included the flexibility and openness of Hexagon’s software and the company’s implementation services, which leverage its experience in the Italian communications market to deliver targeted solutions for Valtellina’s different usage scenarios.

“Valtellina was searching for an alternative to its existing network design and documentation software,” said Angelo Gazzoni, Italy country manager, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “We have been able to provide not only a better option for core network design and information management tasks, but also a solution for the company’s data preparation and production challenge.”

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps utilities and communications companies achieve greater reliability, enhance customer satisfaction, increase efficiency and fulfill the expectations of their customers, shareholders and regulators. A pioneer in the development and application of location-based technology, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure provides solutions to hundreds of utilities and communications customers around the globe, supporting network engineering, network operations, customer services, sales and marketing and safety and security.

The Regional Civil Protection and Fire Service of the Azores has received the European Emergency Number Association’s (EENA) Remarkable Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) Achievement Award for its integrated call-taking and dispatching system built on Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure software.

With a dispersed population of approximately 250,000 residents, the Azores suffered from disparities in access to health care and coordination of emergency resources. The Regional Civil Protection and Fire Service of Azores (Serviço Regional de Proteção Civil e Bombeiros dos Açores or SRPCBA) needed a more efficient way to create emergency calls for service, including medical triage, and dispatch responders to handle these events.

To overcome this challenge, SRPCBA selected Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) for incident management across the islands, including IPT Triage, an application and workflow based on Manchester Triage System Telephone Triage and Advice protocols. The application and protocols provide a tool for call-takers to determine the health and condition of the caller, which equips responders with better awareness of the patient’s condition and medical professionals with the information needed to determine the level and degree of care required at hospital.

“With the integrated call-taking and dispatching system, SRPCBA has improved the management of emergency and non-emergency calls across Azores archipelago, allowing its population to receive the right care at the right time and at the right place”, said Carlos Neves, president of SRPCBA.

The award was presented last week during the 112 Awards Ceremony at the EENA Conference in Budapest, Hungary.

“Hexagon’s solutions are the technology foundation for SRPCBA’s dispatching and triage system,” said Domingos Lourenço, country manager for Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure in Portugal. “We are proud to support such a visionary emergency services organization. Recognition at this level in Europe shows that Azores is at the forefront of innovation in the area of public safety and security.”

The global leader in public safety and security, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps protect 1 in 12 people worldwide. Hexagon’s public safety and security solutions improve the quality, accuracy and availability of critical information, increasing performance and productivity, while reducing the total cost of ownership for mission-critical IT investments.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure and Frequentis Upgrade South Tyrol’s Command and Control Center

6.4.2017 9:30  

The South Tyrolean Civil Protection Agency has gone live with a system upgrade and expansion to its integrated command and control center. A Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure customer since 1999, the agency worked with Hexagon and Frequentis to upgrade and integrate its Frequentis 3020 LifeX communications platform with Hexagon’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) system.

The upgrade and extension of the core system features state-of-the-art IP technology that supports, for example, existing capabilities for emergency calls and analog radio communication, while also exploiting the full potential of digital radio. A modern, intuitive user interface enables staff in the command and control center to operate all communication channels via a touch screen or through the integrated dispatching system. The voice recording takes place within Frequentis’ DIVOS 3 log solution. The bilingual user interface permits dispatchers to work in either German or Italian. The entire range of fully integrated software from Hexagon and Frequentis is implemented on a virtual platform to reduce hardware requirements and optimally support all business-related functions.

Commenting on the project’s success and the capabilities of the integrated system, Markus Rauch, project manager of the Regional Department of Fire and Civil Protection at the Civil Protection Agency, said, “The new solution’s innovative operation facilitates easier handling of emergency calls and radio communications, simplifying and enhancing coordination and cooperation between three organizations. Systems security and availability are particularly important to us, constituting the fundamental requirement for our day-to-day responsibilities in the safety-critical area.”

Located in the provincial capital, Bolzano, the command and control center supports the three departments of the Civil Protection Agency: Professional Fire Brigade of Bolzano, Traffic Information Center and Regional Emergency Call Center. The new solution equips the province’s emergency services with the tools needed to face future challenges. By following the TETRA standard using Frequentis’ Unified Radio Gateway, the solution will allow personnel to take full advantage of digital trunked radio following the launch of TETRA operations in the summer of 2017. In addition, the common European 112 emergency number is currently being adopted as a national standard throughout Italy. The systems are also flexible and extensible to adapt to operational changes within the command center.

Maximilian Weber, senior vice president for EMEA at Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, states, “We are excited to have our long-standing customer, the Autonomous Province of South Tyrol, joining us in our endeavors to enhance and shape the future. Along with Frequentis, Hexagon’s state-of-the-art technologies are optimizing the command center’s communications and operational management – to the great benefit of the local citizens and millions of tourists in South Tyrol.”

Hexagon Computer-Aided Dispatch System Achieves Initial Operational Capability With U.S. Marine Corps

6.3.2017 9:00  

The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) Consolidated Emergency Response System (CERS) program received Initial Operational Capability (IOC) certification, declaring Hexagon’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) system is operational and meets the IOC CERS requirements. This important step in the system’s implementation is part of the Full-Rate Production Decision Review, the last step in a rigorous implementation and approvals process.

Developed by Hexagon, I/CAD provides federal installations with hardware and software to manage incoming 911 emergency calls and incident management components accurately and in real-time. Following achieving IOC status, the CERS program will continue to implement the market-leading I/CAD system to 12 USMC bases throughout the world. Approval was based on rigorous testing, engineering and the live operation of I/CAD at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point in North Carolina.

For certification, I/CAD was also required to meet the stringent Risk Management Framework cybersecurity requirements of the DoD and the U.S. Navy. The system passed Milestone C approval last year, which certifies it meets over 1,500 stated requirements for the Marine Corps.

“Our live system acceptance at MCAS Cherry Point proves the I/CAD system meets the stringent requirements of the DoD and the U.S. Marine Corps, ensuring that the nation’s warfighters are protected at home,” said Cameron Smith, Hexagon US Federal vice president of security solutions.

Achieving Defense Acquisition System IOC approval allows the fielding of the CERS system to all remaining USMC installations listed in the five-year, $35 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to Hexagon US Federal, formerly Intergraph Government Solutions, in 2014.

The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) Consolidated Emergency Response System (CERS) program received Initial Operational Capability (IOC) certification, declaring Hexagon’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) system is operational and meets the IOC CERS requirements. This important step in the system’s implementation is part of the Full-Rate Production Decision Review, the last step in a rigorous implementation and approvals process.

Developed by Hexagon, I/CAD provides federal installations with hardware and software to manage incoming 911 emergency calls and incident management components accurately and in real-time. Following achieving IOC status, the CERS program will continue to implement the market-leading I/CAD system to 12 USMC bases throughout the world. Approval was based on rigorous testing, engineering and the live operation of I/CAD at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point in North Carolina.

For certification, I/CAD was also required to meet the stringent Risk Management Framework cybersecurity requirements of the DoD and the U.S. Navy. The system passed Milestone C approval last year, which certifies it meets over 1,500 stated requirements for the Marine Corps.

“Our live system acceptance at MCAS Cherry Point proves the I/CAD system meets the stringent requirements of the DoD and the U.S. Marine Corps, ensuring that the nation’s warfighters are protected at home,” said Cameron Smith, Hexagon US Federal vice president of security solutions.

Achieving Defense Acquisition System IOC approval allows the fielding of the CERS system to all remaining USMC installations listed in the five-year, $35 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to Hexagon US Federal, formerly Intergraph Government Solutions, in 2014.

“Obtaining accurate location from smartphone calls is critical for PSAPs and first responders,” said Steven Marz, vice president of product management, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “Through our partnership with RapidSOS, we can provide our computer-aided dispatch customers with a much-needed new capability that will improve the speed and accuracy of emergency response.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure,” said Michael Martin, CEO of RapidSOS. “This partnership will transform how 9-1-1 call takers respond to mobile callers, resulting in dramatically improved emergency outcomes for millions of emergencies nationwide, and ultimately globally.”

A global leader in public safety and security, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps protect 1 in 12 people worldwide. Hexagon’s public safety and security solutions improve the quality, accuracy and availability of critical information, increasing performance and productivity, while reducing the total cost of ownership for mission-critical IT investments.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Offers Advanced Distribution Management System for Electric Utility Companies

21.12.2016 9:00  

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure now offers a fully-integrated advanced distribution management system (ADMS) solution to better enable utilities to manage their complex electrical distribution infrastructure and take advantage of real-time operational data. The ADMS solution will aid utilities in improving their network reliability and resilience by streamlining operations and expediting critical actions and decisions.

Leveraging Hexagon’s strategic alliance with ETAP, the single-vendor ADMS solution features Hexagon’s Intergraph InService with embedded distribution management system (DMS) engine from ETAP. The solution includes comprehensive network analysis tools to perform distribution state estimation, dispatcher power flow and fault calculations; the ability to operate telemetered and non-telemetered devices for ad-hoc operations or planned switching; fault location identification, volt-var control and fault-isolation service restoration; and increased efficiency of field crews and restoration activities.

“The ADMS solution is scalable to provide smart grid capabilities to any sized utility, from the largest investor-owned company to small municipal utilities,” said Anna Throneberry, vice president, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “The flexibility of the underlying configurable, off-the-shelf system enables utilities to deploy an ADMS that is unique to their operational procedures without requiring costly customizations.”

The integration between Hexagon’s and ETAP’s products is built upon common information model (CIM) and other industry standards, which have been proven in production environments, linking together outage management systems (OMS), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and DMS.

“Integrating real-time situational awareness, event management and online electrical network analysis capabilities allows utility distribution operators to better visualize, analyze and optimize smart grid operations,” said Tanuj Khandelwal, chief technology officer, ETAP. “A single user interface for outage management, dispatching and advanced analytics brings together situational intelligence utilities need to operate their distribution networks more efficiently and at reduced cost.”

Any successful real-time operation requires a functional electrical model that is detailed, accurate and current. By further leveraging Hexagon’s network model management solution, utilities can create and maintain a complete and reliable ADMS master network model – from supply points to individual meters – supplying relevant network model data to all the systems that need it.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps utilities and communications companies achieve greater reliability, increase efficiency and fulfill the expectations of customers, shareholders and regulators. A pioneer in the development and application of location-based technology, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure has provided solutions to hundreds of utilities and communications customers around the globe for 40 years, supporting network engineering, network operations, customer services, sales and marketing and physical security.

North Wales Police Entrusts Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure and Frequentis with Joint Communications Centre Systems Upgrade

22.11.2016 4:00  

North Wales Police, a customer of Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure and Frequentis for more than a decade, has contracted with Hexagon to upgrade the existing Frequentis 3020 Integrated Communication Control System (ICCS) to the Frequentis 3020 LifeX software platform and provide associated integration to Hexagon’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) incident management and dispatch system.

The upgrade provides North Wales Police with a single platform for both emergency and non-emergency forms of contact centre and control room communications including radio, telephony, email and web chat. The solution enables configurable skills-based routing of communications, provides more information on both people and properties at the point of contact through integration with other police systems and delivers automated management information reporting.

The integrated solution facilitates infrastructure consolidation through the use of a single workstation per operator position and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and virtualisation in the data centre. The 3020 LifeX software platform will also support the transition to the Emergency Services Network (ESN) for North Wales Police in the coming years.

Paul Shea, North Wales Police control room manager, said, “The commitment from Hexagon and Frequentis to work with us to not only enhance our communications with the public through all media channels, but also to support us to be ready for the transition to ESN is just what we need to allow us to concentrate on policing. We have worked with Hexagon and Frequentis for a long time and understand their knowledge and experience in control rooms and critical communications. This, coupled with the 3020 LifeX solution, were the reasons why we decided to implement the new ICCS and contact centre upgrade with them.”

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Chosen by Salt Lake Area Public Safety Agencies for Integrated 911 Dispatching and Records Management

17.10.2016 10:00  

The municipal and county police, fire and emergency medical agencies within Salt Lake County, Utah, selected a suite of mission-critical software from Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure to consolidate regional public safety IT and operations for the first time. The public safety agencies serving 1.2 million residents of the Salt Lake Valley will benefit from unified dispatching, records management, mobile and analytics systems that will help improve data sharing, multi-agency collaboration and overall public safety.

The agencies to be served include Salt Lake Valley Emergency Communications Center (VECC), Salt Lake City 911 (SLC911), Bluffdale Fire Department, Cottonwood Heights Police Department, Draper Police Department, Murray City Police and Fire Departments, Salt Lake City Police and Fire Departments, Sandy Police and Fire Departments, South Jordan Police and Fire Departments, South Salt Lake City Police and Fire Departments, Unified Police and Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Unified Fire Authority, West Jordan City Police and Fire Departments and West Valley Police and Fire Departments. When fully implemented, the Salt Lake Valley deployment will be one of Hexagon’s largest multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional systems in the U.S.

“Adopting the same computer-aided dispatching software system by the two 911 call answering centers serving all city, town and county police and fire will greatly enhance the ability of all agencies to share information and better serve our citizens in need of emergency services,” said VECC Executive Director John Inch Morgan.

The public safety agencies have been working to develop a comprehensive, functionally consolidated public safety system for the past 20 years. In 2014, all public safety agencies in Salt Lake County, including the two 911 communications centers, came together through inter-local agreements to secure shared computer-aided dispatch, records management and mobile systems. The result of this extensive and exhaustive process led to the procurement of a suite of products and services from Hexagon that will decrease response times, improve coordination between agencies, save lives and enhance the safety of first responders.

The agencies selected Hexagon through a competitive proposal process because of its ability to deliver interoperable, scalable and reliable systems across multiple agencies. The Hexagon software will not only enable the Salt Lake Valley to achieve greater efficiencies at its 911 centers, but will also permit agencies to balance workload and ensure back-up of dispatching functions if needed. The records management and mobile software will further extend capabilities to ensure critical, real-time information is available to first responders, investigators and other personnel whenever and wherever needed.

The specific Hexagon software includes Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD), a suite of industry-leading incident management software; Intergraph Mobile for Public Safety and Intergraph Mobile Responder, which extend dispatching capabilities to laptops and mobile devices; Intergraph InPursuit WebRMS, a cloud-deployable, records management system; and Intergraph Business Intelligence for Public Safety, which helps agencies mine, monitor and analyze massive amounts of public safety data for better resource planning and deployment.

“In deploying Hexagon’s public safety systems, Salt Lake Valley agencies can benefit from unified systems for true multi-agency and multi-jurisdictional operations,” said Hank DiPietro, vice president and general manager of U.S. public safety, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. "We're honored that the police and fire agencies and the two public safety answering points have put their trust in our systems to help improve public safety.”

Halton Regional Police Service Receives 2016 Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice Award for Use of Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Software

12.9.2016 10:00  

Halton Regional Police Service of Ontario, Canada, has been named a 2016 Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice Award honoree for its use of Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure software. This prestigious honor recognizes innovative big data initiatives that have delivered significant business value.

To better manage growing demand on public safety services, Halton Regional Police Service created a new Police Analytics unit with a mandate to exploit data to make policing more efficient and effective. Working with Hexagon, the police department deployed Hexagon’s Intergraph Business Intelligence for Public Safety and built a data warehouse that consolidated data from various sources.

All police data is now processed through the system. Each individual action performed by officers is time-stamped and classified based on the nature of the activity. The data is analyzed to enable proactive and preventative operations. Armed with monthly, quarterly and annual performance measures, the agency quantifies officer activities, allowing supervisors to better determine how to allocate teams to improve public safety.

“Hexagon’s Intergraph Business Intelligence for Public Safety product is a key component of our analytical infrastructure. It provides the raw materials that our analysts turn into actionable insights that support the Service,” said Police Analytics Coordinator Joseph Glover, Halton Regional Police Service.

The Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice awards program was launched in 2013 by IDG’s Computerworld editorial team to recognize organizations that are mining big data to analyze and predict business trends and monetize this information. Organizations were asked to complete questionnaires detailing their big data projects, which were then reviewed by the Computerworld editorial team.

Halton Regional Police Service of Ontario, Canada, has been named a 2016 Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice Award honoree for its use of Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure software. This prestigious honor recognizes innovative big data initiatives that have delivered significant business value.

To better manage growing demand on public safety services, Halton Regional Police Service created a new Police Analytics unit with a mandate to exploit data to make policing more efficient and effective. Working with Hexagon, the police department deployed Hexagon’s Intergraph Business Intelligence for Public Safety and built a data warehouse that consolidated data from various sources.

All police data is now processed through the system. Each individual action performed by officers is time-stamped and classified based on the nature of the activity. The data is analyzed to enable proactive and preventative operations. Armed with monthly, quarterly and annual performance measures, the agency quantifies officer activities, allowing supervisors to better determine how to allocate teams to improve public safety.

“Hexagon’s Intergraph Business Intelligence for Public Safety product is a key component of our analytical infrastructure. It provides the raw materials that our analysts turn into actionable insights that support the Service,” said Police Analytics Coordinator Joseph Glover, Halton Regional Police Service.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Helps North Wales Police Identify Vulnerable Callers

17.8.2016 2:30  

North Wales Police has successfully implemented Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s Known Callers contact management module as part of its Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) incident management system. The new module helps North Wales Police satisfy a crucial requirement of providing the ability to identify repeat and vulnerable callers at the point of contact.

Addressing caller vulnerabilities is a key requirement for North Wales Police and other forces throughout the UK, a need cited by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), which independently assesses police forces in England and Wales on how effectively they protect vulnerable people from harm and support victims. The solution also aids police force safety by automatically alerting operators to any potential risk of dispatching officers to premises where legally held firearms may be present. The new module builds upon North Wales Police’s existing I/CAD system from Hexagon, a suite of industry-leading incident management software that features complete, integrated capabilities for call handling and dispatching, field communications and more.

The new Hexagon solution improves the collection of information from the caller through a configurable workflow that supports the principle of “collect once, use many times”. It uses a specialised rules engine that supports structured dialogue and helps avoid double entry of information. It also automates the search of data already held by the force, reducing the time spent by the communications operator on basic checking of intelligence. This consistent approach provides more effective support to those in greatest need of the police’s protection and support.

Paul Shea, North Wales Police Control Room Manager, said, “Hexagon has provided North Wales Police with a solution which assists communications operators to identify caller’s vulnerabilities at the point of contact, while also providing a comprehensive history of calls. Following work by the Hexagon team to meet our organisations’ specific needs at the point of call, the solution has far exceeded our initial expectations.”

Ian Holmes, Public Safety and Security Sales Manager, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, said, “Hexagon is pleased to assist North Wales Police by improving call-handling performance as identified by HMIC. Building from our long-term commitment and relationship, we will continue to work in partnership together for a safer North Wales.”

The global leader in public safety and security solutions, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps protect 1 in 12 people worldwide. By improving the quality, accuracy and availability of critical information, Hexagon’s integrated solutions increase public safety and security performance and productivity, while reducing the total cost of ownership for mission-critical IT investments.

U.S. Marine Corps to Deploy Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch to 13 Bases Worldwide

16.6.2016 10:00  

The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC), as part of the Consolidated Emergency Response System (CERS) program, will deploy Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) software across 13 USMC bases throughout the world. With the support of Intergraph Government Solutions (IGS) and the Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), the CERS program office received a combined Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval for the software, a key step in the Department of Defense's acquisition process that enables the program to move forward with full system deployment.

Working with the MCSC team, approval was based on rigorous testing and engineering and the live operation of I/CAD at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point in North Carolina. Developed by IGS’ parent company, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, I/CAD was required to meet the stringent Risk Management Framework cybersecurity requirements of the Department of Defense and the U.S. Navy.

“Our live system acceptance at MCAS Cherry Point proved crucial to gaining Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval,” said Cameron Smith, IGS executive director of security solutions. “We’re very pleased with the result and look forward to continued expansion of I/CAD implementations within Marine Corps and other Department of Defense installations.”

Achieving Defense Acquisition System Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval allows the fielding of the CERS system to all USMC installations listed in the five-year, $23 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to IGS in 2014. Also as part of the CERS program, the U.S. Navy has formally approved I/CAD for use within the Department of Navy networks through the U.S. Navy Application and Database Management System (DADMS) certification.

Much like the MCAS Cherry Point system, any Department of Defense implementations of I/CAD will provide installations with hardware and software to manage incoming 911 emergency calls and incident management components accurately and in real-time.

16.6.2016 10:00  

The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC), as part of the Consolidated Emergency Response System (CERS) program, will deploy Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) software across 13 USMC bases throughout the world. With the support of Intergraph Government Solutions (IGS) and the Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), the CERS program office received a combined Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval for the software, a key step in the Department of Defense's acquisition process that enables the program to move forward with full system deployment.

Working with the MCSC team, approval was based on rigorous testing and engineering and the live operation of I/CAD at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point in North Carolina. Developed by IGS’ parent company, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, I/CAD was required to meet the stringent Risk Management Framework cybersecurity requirements of the Department of Defense and the U.S. Navy.

“Our live system acceptance at MCAS Cherry Point proved crucial to gaining Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval,” said Cameron Smith, IGS executive director of security solutions. “We’re very pleased with the result and look forward to continued expansion of I/CAD implementations within Marine Corps and other Department of Defense installations.”

Achieving Defense Acquisition System Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval allows the fielding of the CERS system to all USMC installations listed in the five-year, $23 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to IGS in 2014. Also as part of the CERS program, the U.S. Navy has formally approved I/CAD for use within the Department of Navy networks through the U.S. Navy Application and Database Management System (DADMS) certification.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Presents Icon Awards to ESB Networks, Halton Regional Police Service and Madhya Pradesh Police

15.6.2016 10:00  

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure presented ESB Networks Ltd., Halton Regional Police Service and Madhya Pradesh Police with Icon Awards for their visionary use of software to significantly benefit their customers, citizens and communities. Announced at HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s annual conference, the Icon Awards are Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s highest customer award.

“We are proud to partner with industry leaders ESB Networks, Halton Regional Police Service and Madhya Pradesh Police,” said Steven Cost, president, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “They represent the best in innovation-led customer and community service. It’s my great honor to present these leading organizations with our Icon Award.”

ESB Networks

ESB Networks is the licensed operator of the electricity distribution system in the Republic of Ireland. ESB Networks relied on a highly bespoke geographic information system (GIS) to meet the specific, daily workflows required by its users. While it served the company well for years, the 25-year-old system was no longer supported and was hosted on aging IT infrastructure. These legacy technologies posed a risk to the delivery of the company’s core business functions and services.

Working with Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure and Hexagon’s partner Irish Mapping and GIS Solutions (IMGS) Ltd., ESB Networks implemented a new GIS built upon Hexagon’s Intergraph G/Technology to support the planning, design, construction and day-to-day operations of its electricity distribution network. The Hexagon software serves as a single enterprise solution for the full life-cycle management of ESB Networks’ network assets, improving workflow efficiencies and integrating seamlessly with other business-critical systems.

With it, ESB Networks has been able to successfully manage nearly 100,000 miles (160,000 kilometers) of electricity network, serve more than 2 million customers and improve the safety of its field crews.

“We are a regulated monopoly so value for money for customers is an issue for us. We’re constantly looking for improved efficiencies,” said Marguerite Sayers, managing director, ESB Networks. “Our GIS system and our relationship with Hexagon are core to making sure that we can deliver on the promise we make to our customers.”

Halton Regional Police Service

As part of the Greater Toronto Area, the Regional Municipality of Halton is experiencing Canada’s fastest population growth. To better manage growing demand on public safety services, Halton Regional Police Service created a new unit with a mandate to exploit data to make policing more efficient and effective. To conduct meaningful analysis, the agency first needed to transform its data into a useable form.

Halton Regional Police Service partnered with Hexagon to implement Hexagon’s Business Intelligence for Public Safety. Working with Hexagon, HRPS built a data warehouse that consolidated data from various sources.

Police data is now processed through the system. Each individual action performed by officers is time-stamped and classified based on the nature of the activity, and officer location and vehicle speed are also tracked and processed. The data is analyzed to enable proactive and preventative operations.

Armed with monthly, quarterly and annual performance measures, the agency can quantify officer activities, allowing supervisors to better determine how to allocate teams to improve public safety.

“Business analytics are very crucial to how we effectively deploy,” said Chief of Police Stephen Tanner, Halton Regional Police Service. “It's been an honor to have people from across Canada and other areas of the world recognize our efforts. It’s a fabulous testament to the work of our people to ensure continuous improvement.”

Madhya Pradesh Police

Madhya Pradesh is the second-largest state in India with 72 million people and 51 districts, many of which are in remote areas with limited access and connectivity to emergency services. Faced with geographic and infrastructure challenges, Madhya Pradesh Police sought to deploy a unified command-and-control system that would reduce response time and improve service to its citizens across the state.

Madhya Pradesh Police implemented an integrated suite of public safety software from Hexagon, including Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD), industry-leading incident management software, and EdgeFrontier, an integration platform that enables the organization to develop interfaces to other IT systems. The solution expands Madhya Pradesh Police’s incident response capabilities through map-based views of calls, events and units in the field. The agency’s field officers have in-car access to information in real time to optimize efficiency and improve situational awareness.

Hexagon’s software aids Madhya Pradesh Police in dealing with nearly 100,000 calls per day from 51 cities. The solution has helped reduce response times in urban areas from 30-60 minutes to 5 minutes or less.

“As the response time of the police has reduced, people are much more confident of their safety and feel safer now,” said Additional Director General of Police Anvesh Mangalam, Madhya Pradesh Police. “We are the pioneers in this country, and it is one of the largest integrated emergency response systems in the world. Now every state in the country is trying to duplicate our efforts,” added Superintendent of Police Amit Saxena.

Gamma 2 Robotics Launches Fully Autonomous Security Robot, Partners with Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure

14.6.2016 15:00  

Gamma 2 Robotics, makers of the world’s first artificially intelligent autonomous security robots, today launched RAMSEE, a new security patrol robot, at HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s international conference. The launch at HxGN LIVE is part of a new partnership with Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, the global leader in public safety and security solutions.

RAMSEE is a physical presence that patrols autonomously without supervision and provides real-time data on intruders, motion, heat, fire, smoke, gas and more. As a human-machine interface it creates a powerful force multiplier.

“RAMSEE will change the world of security because it never rests and operates at a fraction of the cost paid for other security services,” said Lew Pincus, chief executive officer, Gamma 2 Robotics. “We built RAMSEE to be ideally suited for the overnight dull, dirty and dangerous patrols nobody wants to do. These are the jobs for which the security industry struggles to find staffing.”

The companies that provide security personnel as well as the end users of security services have been plagued with an inability to recruit staff, resulting in high turn-over and low reliability of manned security labor. By using RAMSEE as a force multiplier, safety and security can be delivered at a lower cost with greater reliability.

“Mobile sensor platforms, such as robots and drones, have the potential to disrupt public safety and security markets,” said Kalyn Sims, chief technology officer, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “Through our partnership with Gamma 2 Robotics and other efforts, Hexagon is exploring the integration of mobile sensor platforms, command-and-control software and advanced analytics to enhance public safety and security.”

While useful in their own right, the value of robots and other mobile sensor platforms increases when integrated with other safety and security assets, such as video surveillance systems, access control systems, building automation systems and others, into command-and-control software for a comprehensive solution for threat detection, assessment and response.

At HxGN LIVE in Anaheim, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure and Gamma 2 Robotics are demonstrating the capabilities of a comprehensive physical security information management (PSIM) solution featuring Hexagon’s command-and-control software and multiple security systems and sensors, including RAMSEE.

“We teamed with Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure and chose to launch our new line of security robots at HxGN LIVE because Hexagon’s global footprint and reputation for innovative solutions provide an international platform for our game-changing, disruptive technology in security services,” said Pincus.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Software Aids Emergency Response in Gotthard Base Tunnel

6.6.2016 10:00  

On June 1, the world’s longest railway tunnel officially opened, featuring an Emergency Response System from Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. As a subcontractor of Siemens Switzerland, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure integrated its Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) within the Gotthard Base Tunnel’s two Tunnel Control Systems.

AlpTransit Gotthard Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), is the constructor of the Gotthard axis of the new rail link from the north to the south through the Alps. Seventeen years after the first blast in the main duct, the Gotthard Base Tunnel consists of two 57-kilometers-long single-track tubes. With a rock overburden of up to 2,300 meters, the Gotthard Base Tunnel is also the world's deepest railway tunnel constructed to date. The scheduled commercial services will start in December 2016.

Solving operations-related tasks is a major aspect of the work of the Gotthard Base Tunnel. Two fully redundant Tunnel Control Systems have been implemented by Siemens Switzerland in two separate Tunnel Control Centers at the north and south portals, respectively, to control and monitor all the tunnel’s electrical systems. An essential part of these Tunnel Control Systems is emergency handling in terms of monitoring emergency procedures and informing the operator in case procedures are not initiated automatically and correctly. Leveraging four operational seats of Hexagon’s I/CAD, the Emergency Response System is an integrated element of the Tunnel Control Systems.

“Security is paramount in the Gotthard Base Tunnel,” said Peter Müller, Project Manager of the Tunnel Control System, Siemens Switzerland. “And as a key tool fully integrated in the Tunnel Control Systems, Hexagon’s software solution ensures the necessary and proper steps for all cases of incident response.”

I/CAD is the key system for the management of events, such as trains stuck in the tunnels, fires in the tunnels, incidents on track construction sites or extreme weather events affecting the infrastructure. In case of an incident, Hexagon’s dispatching system supports operating personnel via checklists, situation plans and instructions to schedule and mobilize intervention teams. The system also provides a convenient way to monitor intervention areas.

“Gotthard Base Tunnel is a project of the century in respect to engineering, transportation and security,” said Maximilian Weber, senior vice president, EMEA, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “We are proud that our software can help to maintain safe and efficient operations in this key rail link.”

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s proven, integrated rail solutions help operators balance multiple factors – from safety to capacity to quality of service – to achieve success. Its asset management solutions support networks that carry half of Europe’s heavy rail passengers, while its safety and security solutions protect 5 billion rail passengers a year in North America and Europe.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Releases Intergraph Damage Assessment for Electric Utility Companies

21.4.2016 10:00  

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure has released Intergraph Damage Assessment, an application that enables end-to-end automation of the entire post-storm damage assessment process. Intergraph Damage Assessment can be used for simple outage patrols, as well as in times of devastating storm damage, making it an everyday solution that maximizes return on investment for electric utility companies.

Intergraph Damage Assessment’s integrated components originate in the storm room and extend to the field and back for a complete, automated solution. Supervisors can assign assessment work and visualize and analyse up-to-date data from a web-based application. Field crews using tablets can perform assessments against GIS network facility data and send results back in real-time.

Unlike disaster documentation systems, Intergraph Damage Assessment is specific to utility workflows, and unlike other damage assessment applications, it integrates with any geographic information system (GIS) or outage management system (OMS), featuring both a field application and supervisory dashboard for end-to-end workflows.

“Intergraph Damage Assessment automates the complete damage assessment process, helping utility companies identify storm-affected areas, determine proper staffing levels and obtain feedback on physical damage in real time,” said Eric Charette, executive manager of utilities, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “Dispatchers stay better informed on the extent of damage, while storm managers can track progress. With Intergraph Damage Assessment, better information from the field ultimately leads to more accurate restoration times.”

Expectations to improve customer service and reduce restoration times is at an all-time high for electric utility companies. “Sending assessors out in advance to conduct Damage Assessment helps prioritize the hardest hit areas so that we can focus the deployment of our lineman on rebuilding the grid,” said Len Socha, senior outage management engineer, Wisconsin Public Service Corp.

However, most companies’ existing processes for damage assessment involve manual, paper-based data collection using outdated, printed map books or custom, in-house applications. They provide little real-time feedback to the storm supervisor during the assessment process, and any information collected must be manually entered into the OMS.

Intergraph Damage Assessment overcomes these hurdles. Within Intergraph Damage Assessment, a web-based application displays the location of outages, field crews and network facilities and enables supervisors to assign work by geographic areas. A tablet-based mobile application uses web services to provide views of outages, crews and GIS facility information as a layer on top of commercial maps, which enables workers to collect data in the field for comprehensive damage assessment. Using the web-based application back in the storm room, supervisors can view that information and run reports and analysis to determine the extent of damage and aid in restoration strategy. Server-side event processing and industry-standard messaging enable integration with other systems for collection results, including materials required to rebuild the network, leading to real-time intelligent decision making, which is not possible when using outdated paper maps.

Extensive hands-on field testing of Intergraph Damage Assessment was conducted as part of the certification cycle.  “We felt it was vital to get Intergraph Damage Assessment in the hands of users to test the application in the field under real-world conditions that you can’t simulate in the office,” Charette said. 

The release of Intergraph Damage Assessment coincides with the Midwest Mutual Assistance Group Conference in Chicago, Illinois. Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure is a sponsor of the conference, which meets to discuss electric utility resource management, storm restoration techniques and damage assessment.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps utilities and communications companies achieve greater reliability, increase efficiency and fulfill the expectations of customers, shareholders and regulators. A pioneer in the development and application of location-based technology, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure provides solutions to hundreds of utilities and communications customers around the globe, supporting network engineering, network operations, customer services, sales and marketing and physical security.

Australian Motoring Clubs Select Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure for Shared, Cloud Platform for Roadside Assistance

22.3.2016 9:00  

A consortium of Australian motoring clubs serving 2.8 million customers has selected Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure to provide a cloud-based platform for roadside assistance. With the selection of Hexagon’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) software, the participating clubs will benefit, for the first time, from shared roadside assistance technologies.

Comprised of Royal Automobile Club of Queensland, Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia and Royal Automobile Association of South Australia, the Australian Club Consortium (ACC) was formed to promote inter-club collaboration and shared IT platforms and services. The consortium’s Common Australian Roadside Assistance System (CARS) program was initiated to deliver a common roadside assistance platform.

Glenn Toms, chairman of the CARS program steering committee and director of ACC, said, “We deliver world class service to our members, and we are broadening our membership proposition by implementing a common technology layer to support future initiatives. The I/CAD solution is built on global technology, and advances in that technology will be made available to us from across the globe. This puts us in a strong position to meet rapidly changing trends and innovation in the automotive industry.”

Roadside assistance services contribute to safer and less congested roads by aiding stranded motorists and clearing blockages and potential hazards. The participating clubs have always worked to deliver efficient and quality service to their members. They want to ensure they keep pace with the rapid advancement of automotive technology, leverage technology innovations and deliver efficiency improvements for their businesses.

The consortium selected Hexagon for the CARS program because of the company’s technical capabilities, industry knowledge and ability to deliver a unified and powerful solution to support the clubs’ current business requirements and future goals. The Hexagon systems will enable the clubs to run multiple operations from a single solution with the flexibility of cloud infrastructure; identify the caller, location and, in most cases, automatically dispatch the closest or most relevant assistance vehicle in the area; and locate members and staff in the field geospatially in real time. The solution also supports the supply of vital spare parts, management of external service providers and expansion through new business offerings.

The participating clubs have always worked to deliver efficient and quality service to their members. They want to ensure they keep pace with the rapid advancement of automotive technology, leverage technology innovations and deliver efficiency improvements for their businesses.

The consortium selected Hexagon for the CARS program because of the company’s technical capabilities, industry knowledge and ability to deliver a unified and powerful solution to support the clubs’ current business requirements and future goals. The Hexagon systems will enable the clubs to run multiple operations from a single solution with the flexibility of cloud infrastructure; identify the caller, location and, in most cases, automatically dispatch the closest or most relevant assistance vehicle in the area; and locate members and staff in the field geospatially in real time.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Supports Unidata Fiber Optic Network in Rome

7.3.2016 9:00  

Unidata SpA has selected Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s advanced telecommunications GIS software to help manage the company’s metropolitan area network in Rome. Using Intergraph G/Technology Fiber Optic Works, Unidata can deploy a geospatial resource management system that will enhance knowledge of the existing network, support new design efforts and improve operations, sales and geo-marketing activities.

Unidata’s technical department, charged with planning and deployment of the fiber optic network, will use the Hexagon software to analyse the network, design new sections and make changes to the network configuration as new customer connections are added. By improving the company’s enterprise information architecture, the system will also enhance data exchange between the back office and field personnel and reduce service restoration times for customers.

“Our fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network has grown rapidly in recent years, and become unmanageable using flat files. Without a network management system in place, it is difficult to support our design needs and other activities,” said Massimo Gradillo, network engineer, Unidata. “With Hexagon’s Fiber Optic Works, we can standardize the design process and reduce time spent searching for existing data. Overall, it provides a better view of network data, which aids planning, operations and other business activities.”

With Fiber Optic Works, Unidata will consolidate network data spread over multiple AutoCAD and Excel files, creating a single, smart repository. The system will coordinate all fiber asset information in a distributed multi-user environment that enables both outside plant (OSP) and inside plant (ISP) management. Hexagon’s local partner, GESP srl, is implementing the system.

Among the first Internet service providers in Italy, Unidata’s fiber optic network in Rome consists of more than 300 kilometers of assets, including important telecommunications nodes, telephone exchanges, the NaMeX Internet exchange point and two Internet data centers. The network is the basis of HiperLAN and Wi-Fi networks.

Unidata selected Fiber Optic Works because of the software’s capabilities, the high level of openness of the applications and the richness of Hexagon’s entire suite of products. Another important factor was Hexagon’s extensive global telecommunications customer base and industry knowledge as well as its specific customer references and local market knowledge in Italy.

“Fiber Optic Works will help Unidata consolidate its network information and improve many workflows that are fundamental to its business,” said Tiziano Orsenigo, account manager for utilities and communications, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “Unidata joins Vodafone Italy, Retelit, Asco Tlc and other communications companies that use Hexagon software to deliver FTTH across Italy.”

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps utilities and communications companies achieve greater reliability, enhance customer satisfaction, increase efficiency and fulfil the expectations of their customers, shareholders and regulators. A pioneer in the development and application of location-based technology, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure provides solutions to hundreds of utilities and communications customers around the globe, supporting network engineering, network operations, customer services, sales and marketing and safety and security.
