Hexagon Helps Electric Utilities Cut Fault Location Time from Hours to Minutes

5.2.2019 9:00  

Huntsville, Alabama, February 5, 2019 – Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division has released a new software application that aids electric utilities in determining the location of faults more quickly and accurately. Launched at DistribuTECH 2019, Hexagon’s Intergraph InService Fault Location helps utilities improve outage restoration by cutting fault location time from hours to minutes.

Repairing outages is among the biggest cost for utilities. Up to half the time spent repairing an outage can involve finding the fault. Sending crews to patrol circuits can be time-consuming and expensive. InService Fault Location automates this process to improve outage restoration. The application calculates the location and characteristics of faults, allowing utilities to address problems sooner.

“Utilities are under pressure to reduce the duration of outages,” said Anna Throneberry, vice president and general manager for U.S. utilities and communications, Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division. “By automating key processes, InService Fault Location helps utilities overcome this challenge and make drastic improvements in outage restoration.”

With InService Fault Location, utilities can determine and display the location of faults by type and magnitude. It cuts time spent in rural areas searching for faults and enables utilities in urban areas to make faster switching decisions. The application works for both sustained and momentary outages.

InService Fault Location is part of Hexagon’s Intergraph InService suite and available for version 9.4. InService provides the core capabilities for an advanced distribution management system (ADMS) to monitor and operate the distribution system. Integrating with third-party systems (such as SCADA, AMI and CIS), InService delivers operational intelligence to the enterprise by providing grid analysis and optimization, tracking outages, restoring service and managing field crews.

Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division has pioneered the development and application of location-based systems for electric, communications, water and gas companies for decades. The company supports hundreds of utilities and communications customers around the world with solutions for network engineering, network operations and other business functions.

Alectra Utilities, the second-largest municipally owned electric utility in North America, has selected Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division to merge the utility’s four separate geographic information systems (GIS) into a single, enterprise GIS built on Hexagon’s Intergraph G/Technology software.

Alectra Utilities was formed from the merger of Enersource, Horizon Utilities and PowerStream in 2017, followed by the acquisition of Brampton Hydro, to become the second largest municipally-owned electricity utility in North America based on total number of customers served. The project includes merging the four utilities’ distinct systems into a single, common data model and symbology; refactoring the numerous system interfaces and converting the GIS data, which will result in a single, enterprise system.

“Alectra Utilities needed an enterprise-level system-of-record to manage all of our GIS and network data,” said Mike Matthews, senior vice president of network services for Alectra Utilities. “Consolidating on Hexagon’s Intergraph G/Technology will result in streamlined business processes, standardized engineering practices, improved data quality and better service for our customers.”

With Intergraph G/Technology as its enterprise GIS and network model management solution, Alectra Utilities will expand its ability to monitor, report on and improve reliability and power quality. With a single network operating model that feeds single interfaces into other critical systems, like SCADA, AMI and CIS, the utility can reduce costs and improve efficiency.

“We’re honored that Alectra Utilities selected Hexagon after a 3-year competitive process,” said David Armstrong, vice president and general manager for Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division in Canada. “This is the fourth large utility in Canada to commit to Hexagon’s utility GIS software after competitive review, joining ATCO Electric, FortisAlberta and Toronto Hydro. We’re committed to bringing proven, trusted and innovative technology solutions to our customers.”

Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division has pioneered the development and application of location-based systems for electric, communications, water and gas companies for decades. The company supports hundreds of utilities and communications customers around the world with solutions for network engineering, network operations and other business functions.

When call demand is heavy, IoW Ambulance Service and SCAS will be able to work more closely across their neighbouring operational areas.

“The collaboration and support we have had from SCAS and Hexagon have been superb,” added Maggie Oldham, chief executive officer for IoW NHS Trust. “The professionalism of all those involved has provided the Trust Board with confidence and assurance from day one, and we are very pleased to arrive at a point where we can demonstrate compliance with the new national standards for the ambulance service.”

“This type of regional cooperation is expected to increase across the U.K.,” said Chorley. “To have such a smooth and rapid transition is a testament to the vision, professionalism and collaborative spirit of the Isle of Wight and SCAS teams.”

The global leader in public safety and security, Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division 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 Launches Public Safety Data Visualization and Analytics Software

8.10.2018 9:00  

Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division has launched Intergraph InSight, a new suite of public safety data visualization and analytics software that supports evidence-based reporting, analysis and decision making. It creates a single source of organizational data, which users can explore, analyze and share through interactive reports and dashboards, helping public safety agencies see their data in new ways to assess performance, better allocate resources and improve operations. Hexagon unveiled Intergraph InSight at IACP 2018, the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference and exposition.

Intergraph InSight overcomes the challenges of raw, fragmented, incomplete and incorrect data, providing a solid foundation for accurate and reliable reporting and analysis tailored to an organization’s needs. It empowers staff to run usable reports and analyses to solve business problems, freeing analyst’s time and eliminating delays. These clear visual insights can be shared with the public for greater awareness, engagement and understanding.

“Data is still an untapped resource for many public safety agencies. Staff can’t access what they need, so they can’t apply data to solve problems,” said Jack Williams, product manager, Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division. “Intergraph InSight overcomes that challenge, organizing massive amounts of data and providing 911, police, fire and EMS with a 360-degree view of their agency and operations.”

Intergraph InSight easily incorporates data from multiple sources and resolves differences for quick data retrieval and a deeper pool of information for analysis. A data warehouse and subject-area data models enable business-ready reports, while an intuitive interface and easy-to-use tools allow anyone, not just data specialists and analysts, to access and use data for self-service analysis. Visual and interactive reports and dashboards help users more easily explore complex data and their relationships.

The initial Intergraph InSight products support Hexagon’s computer-aided dispatch software, which is used by thousands of agencies around the world to make communities safer and more resilient. Intergraph InSight – Advantage provides a one-stop-shop for data exploration and visualization, including spatial visualization and playback over time. Intergraph InSight – Essentials provides essential reporting and analysis capabilities for smaller data sets. Both feature pre-configured reports for use with Microsoft SSRS and Microsoft Power BI focused on common call-taking, dispatching, event and unit metrics. The data warehouse is also sold separately for use with other visualization and reporting software.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure to Feature Network Model Management Solutions at DistribuTECH

19.1.2018 9:00  

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure will feature its network model management solutions at the DistribuTECH Conference and Exhibition, the largest annual event for the electric transmission and distribution sector. Hexagon’s software helps electric utilities improve the quality and availability of data for planning and operations.

The solutions include Intergraph G/Technology, which enables operators to maintain a definitive source of reliable, location-based information describing the network and its connectivity, and Intergraph NetWorks, which provides secure, real-time access to the network model across different business functions. Hexagon’s software takes in data from disparate sources, including GIS, databases, spreadsheets, catalogs and more; imports, validates and synthesizes the data for modelling; and then transforms and exports it with CIM capabilities for use in operational systems.

Clean network data is critical for grid planning and customer-friendly operations. However, utilities struggle with inaccurate, incomplete or duplicate data and siloed data analysis. Hexagon’s network model management solutions provide a consistent way to maintain an accurate record of asset location and information, which can be more easily consumed by multiple applications, including ADMS, OMS and SCADA. With a single version of truth for the network model, utilities can improve planning and operations and field productivity and safety.

“Network model management is a major topic for electric utilities,” said Dean Galvez, chief information officer for Snohomish County Public Utility District (SnoPUD), which provides power to more than 330,000 customers north of Seattle. “Our partnership with Hexagon has helped us meet this challenge. Hexagon’s network model management solutions provide the definitive source of valid network data to feed our GE-Alstom ADMS. The technology has been in production for more than three years and is a mission-critical component of our operational enterprise systems.”

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) is currently undertaking collaborative research in distribution-side network model management with its Distribution GIS and Grid Model Data Management project. Hexagon is assisting EPRI in the definition of standards that will allow for better integration. Hexagon will demonstrate its software at booth 3019 from January 23-25 at DistribuTECH in San Antonio, Texas.

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.

Intergraph Branch in Germany rebranded to HxGN Safety & Infrastructure GmbH

11.1.2018 10:30  

As of January 1, 2018, Intergraph Germany SG&I GmbH was rebranded as HxGN Safety & Infrastructure GmbH. The new company name reflects the continuous efforts to more closely align the business activity with that of its parent company, Hexagon AB. HxGN – pronounced ’hexagon’ – is the protected abbreviation for Hexagon.

Saudi Ministry of Interior Supports Hajj and Umrah Safety with Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch Solution

24.10.2017 10:00  

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Interior supported the safety of pilgrims and residents during the Hajj and Umrah seasons of 2016 and 2017 by deploying Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) solution. The incident management system helps the ministry’s public safety and security agencies manage emergency calls for service using a single emergency number (911).

To improve security and safety for the citizens of Saudi Arabia, the ministry began working in 2015 to implement the Unified Security Operations Center (911) in Makkah, the first province-wide emergency call taking and dispatching system. To support this project, the ministry needed a scalable and reliable incident management system -- one that was already proven in the field by many agencies and users.

The ministry selected Hexagon’s I/CAD suite, and the system was put into operation in the summer of 2016. The solution centralized the operation of more than 40 operation centers across the Makkah province into the Unified Security Operations Center (911), thus providing a comprehensive and centralized response system for the entire province, including the cities of Holy Makkah, Jeddah and Taif.

The solution helps improve police and civil defense response for citizens and pilgrims during typical incidents and major events like Hajj and Umrah. Through unified call handling for its Police Patrol, Traffic and Civil Defense sectors and the Road Security Special Forces, the ministry’s personnel manage about 43,000 calls per day during Umrah season operations and about 61,000 during the Hajj.

The ministry is very happy with the Unified Security Operations Center (911) in Makkah, and the experience in Makkah provides the ministry with a model for expansion of such 911 centers to other provinces.

“We are honored to support the Ministry of Interior’s efforts to implement 911 services in Makkah and across other provinces,” said Steven Cost, president, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “The ability of our system to handle both day-to-day incidents and major events like Hajj and Umrah is a key factor in helping to ensure smooth public safety operations and support the ministry’s mission.”

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.

Saudi Ministry of Interior Supports Hajj and Umrah Safety with Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch Solution

24.10.2017 10:00  

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Interior supported the safety of pilgrims and residents during the Hajj and Umrah seasons of 2016 and 2017 by deploying Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) solution. The incident management system helps the ministry’s public safety and security agencies manage emergency calls for service using a single emergency number (911).

To improve security and safety for the citizens of Saudi Arabia, the ministry began working in 2015 to implement the Unified Security Operations Center (911) in Makkah, the first province-wide emergency call taking and dispatching system. To support this project, the ministry needed a scalable and reliable incident management system -- one that was already proven in the field by many agencies and users.

The ministry selected Hexagon’s I/CAD suite, and the system was put into operation in the summer of 2016. The solution centralized the operation of more than 40 operation centers across the Makkah province into the Unified Security Operations Center (911), thus providing a comprehensive and centralized response system for the entire province, including the cities of Holy Makkah, Jeddah and Taif.

The solution helps improve police and civil defense response for citizens and pilgrims during typical incidents and major events like Hajj and Umrah. Through unified call handling for its Police Patrol, Traffic and Civil Defense sectors and the Road Security Special Forces, the ministry’s personnel manage about 43,000 calls per day during Umrah season operations and about 61,000 during the Hajj.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Supports Zurich’s Public Transportation Network

18.10.2017 21:46  

Zurich Public Transport (VBZ) has selected Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s public transport GIS solution to improve infrastructure data quality and access in Switzerland’s largest city. Hexagon’s Geographic Transportation Asset Management System (GeoTrAMS) will provide VBZ with a central database, standard workflow-driven applications and organization-wide access to geospatial information and capabilities.

VBZ’s 2,500 employees operate 76 tram and bus lines on a 510-kilometer network. Currently, data for rail, switches, stops and overhead traction wire is available in computer-aided design (CAD) format, and their evaluation is a time-consuming process.

“A state-of-the-art transportation network is crucial in Zurich, where we are tackling the challenges of urban mobility,” said Christian Heimlicher, project manager, VBZ. “VBZ will use Hexagon’s GeoTrAMS software to create a municipal public transport system that improves data quality and is accessible to more people.”

VBZ rail vehicles travel 90,000 kilometers and serve more than 900,000 passengers each day. Up to 400 vehicles run simultaneously on Zurich’s transportation network, intelligently organized and monitored by a 24/7 command and control room that analyzes traffic throughout the day.

The solution, which includes Hexagon’s GEOS Pro cadaster software, will improve VBZ’s data quality, management, visualization and access. It will also automate reporting to the Swiss Federal Office of Transport, which will save personnel time and resources.

“Hexagon is the only regional vendor with a proven, cost-effective, standard solution that covers all the specific needs of municipal public transport agencies,” said Marc Haenni, country manager for Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure in Switzerland. “We’re pleased that VBZ has selected GeoTrAMS, and we look forward to more transport agencies joining our user community.”

Hexagon developed GeoTrAMS in the German-speaking region for rail-bound transportation. Users include public transport operators in Stuttgart, Frankfurt/Main, in the Rhine Neckar metropolitan region - Heidelberg, Mannheim and Ludwigshafen (Germany), Basel (Switzerland) and Linz (Austria).

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s proven, integrated transportation solutions help operators balance multiple factors – from safety and capacity to quality of service – to achieve success. Hexagon serves some of the world’s largest rail and transit systems, including Deutsche Bahn and the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority.

Frequentis and Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Selected for Nationwide Integrated Command Centers in Austria (Project ELKOS)

2.10.2017 9:30  

Frequentis and Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure have been selected to supply mission-critical technologies for the “ELKOS Austria” project, a nationwide, unified command and communication system. The companies will also support the refurbishment of the current control and command system at the warning center in Lower Austria.

Over the next few years, a central command and communication system for the federal police will be implemented for all of Austria, with the Federal Ministry of the Interior acting as contracting entity. The implementation will also support the fire brigades in Lower Austria, for which the Lower Austria State Administration acts as contracting party.

ELKOS is a crucial element for streamlining the incident management processes for public safety personnel in Austria. It provides the federal police and its nationwide control centers with the necessary technical foundation to ensure safe, reliable and efficient cooperation between different agencies and enable nationwide sharing of information. The joint project supports the Lower Austrian fire brigades (Feuerwehr Niederösterreich) in modernizing its alarm infrastructure, Lower Austria thus being the first cooperation partner for the Ministry of the Interior.

The project is an important step toward a flexible, expandable and fully integrated command center infrastructure in Austria. The new infrastructure is designed to support the federal police’s business and tactical challenges and will ensure permanent sourcing and operating synergies between the federal and state administrations. With the new solution, public safety and security agencies will be able to successfully handle growing global threats – such as terror attacks.

The system is based on an integrated solution of the two consortium partners: Frequentis, the global leader in command center communications, and Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, the global leader in computer-aided dispatch solutions. The Austrian Frequentis company, based in Vienna, served as leader of the consortium – successfully applying its 70 years’ experience in developing communications tools for public safety control centers. For nearly 30 years, Hexagon has been providing computer-aided dispatch systems for public safety organizations around the world.

The integrated solution selected for the ELKOS project is currently deployed by the three state disaster control agencies in Vienna, Styria and Vorarlberg, among many other international customers. It combines three leading products for speech communications, command and control, and incident command. The comprehensive capabilities enable police and rescue agencies to maintain reliable and efficient workflows in their daily operations as well as during major events

Frequentis will provide its multi-media collaboration platform 3020 LifeX. This innovative public safety solution emphasizes the investment’s future reliability for new media and technologies -- such as eCall, NG112 emergency calls (featuring GPS data, real time messaging, images and more), video data (CCTV) and LTE broadband – that can be integrated into the platform as needed. Frequentis’ CEO Hannes Bardach said, “Internationally, we have provided many command center solutions for public safety and security agencies, among them the largest police center in Europe for London’s police agency, Scotland Yard. We are excited to use our expertise in our national market in the visionary ELKOS project.”

Hexagon will implement its leading Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) and Intergraph Planning & Response software, which will support call-taking and dispatching for day-to-day incidents, as well as planning and coordination of major incidents and events. “We are pleased to contribute to the security of the Austrian population and help improve public safety throughout the country,” said Maximilian Weber, Senior Vice President, EMEA at Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “The federal police, the Lower Austria State Administration, and the fire brigades in Lower Austria will benefit from systems that have been proven across Austria and around the world.”

The new infrastructure is designed to support the federal police’s business and tactical challenges and will ensure permanent sourcing and operating synergies between the federal and state administrations. With the new solution, public safety and security agencies will be able to successfully handle growing global threats – such as terror attacks.

The system is based on an integrated solution of the two consortium partners: Frequentis, the global leader in command center communications, and Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, the global leader in computer-aided dispatch solutions. The Austrian Frequentis company, based in Vienna, served as leader of the consortium – successfully applying its 70 years’ experience in developing communications tools for public safety control centers. For nearly 30 years, Hexagon has been providing computer-aided dispatch systems for public safety organizations around the world.

The integrated solution selected for the ELKOS project is currently deployed by the three state disaster control agencies in Vienna, Styria and Vorarlberg, among many other international customers. It combines three leading products for speech communications, command and control, and incident command. The comprehensive capabilities enable police and rescue agencies to maintain reliable and efficient workflows in their daily operations as well as during major events

Frequentis will provide its multi-media collaboration platform 3020 LifeX. This innovative public safety solution emphasizes the investment’s future reliability for new media and technologies -- such as eCall, NG112 emergency calls (featuring GPS data, real time messaging, images and more), video data (CCTV) and LTE broadband – that can be integrated into the platform as needed. Frequentis’ CEO Hannes Bardach said, “Internationally, we have provided many command center solutions for public safety and security agencies, among them the largest police center in Europe for London’s police agency, Scotland Yard. We are excited to use our expertise in our national market in the visionary ELKOS project.”

Hexagon will implement its leading Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) and Intergraph Planning & Response software, which will support call-taking and dispatching for day-to-day incidents, as well as planning and coordination of major incidents and events. “We are pleased to contribute to the security of the Austrian population and help improve public safety throughout the country,” said Maximilian Weber, Senior Vice President, EMEA at Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “The federal police, the Lower Austria State Administration, and the fire brigades in Lower Austria will benefit from systems that have been proven across Austria and around the world.”

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Selects Microsoft Azure for New Public Safety and Security Cloud Products

15.6.2017 14:00  

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure has selected Microsoft Azure as the cloud platform for its next-generation public safety and security products. These products will help to radically reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for mission-critical IT and enable public safety agencies and security operators to adapt to changing needs faster and more effectively.

Hexagon’s new software-as-a-service (SaaS) products will enable customers to provision public safety and security solutions without complex hardware and software procurements. Having been built natively on Azure, Hexagon’s public safety and security products will take advantage of Azure’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS) to expedite development and deliver better capabilities than applications built from generic code and hosted in the cloud.

“The public safety and security industries are in transition, and they need partners and systems they can trust to help them adapt to new threats and growing demands,” said Kalyn Sims, chief technology officer, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “Microsoft Azure provides options for public, private and hybrid clouds, which support the varying stages of cloud adoption across organizations. Currently, Azure has more regions and the most comprehensive compliance certifications of any public cloud provider making it an ideal foundation on which Hexagon can build its task-focused public safety and physical security applications.”

Hexagon will release its first SaaS product later this year for physical security and monitoring. Hexagon’s next-generation public safety and security applications will deliver improved performance, usability and flexibility. Informed by extensive user experience research, they will feature highly productive, easy-to-use interfaces and workflows that are simple to deploy and maintain via Azure.

“Microsoft Azure provides Hexagon with a robust and secure platform for it to help public safety agencies and security operators adapt to a rapidly changing industry,” said Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of product marketing, Azure, Microsoft Corp. “As organizations continue to transition critical services to the cloud, we are pleased to support Hexagon and see its commitment to Azure.”

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.
