The TruePosition U-TDOA Location Platform will be used.
TruePosition has announced that it has deployed its TruePosition U-TDOA Location Platform in the Spanish Region of Murcia. The TruePosition U-TDOA Location Platform will be used to locate callers who dial 112 from their mobile phones, which is the emergency number in the European Union. The Region of Murcia is the first European area to implement the proven technology, which is already deployed across the United States, where it locates more than 60 million emergency calls each year, and has helped to save tens of thousands of lives.
TruePosition was selected because of its unrivaled experience and expertise in mission-critical, location-based safety and security solutions.
“The Region of Murcia’s slogan is ‘The Safest Sea in the World to Start Your Nautical Sports.’ We are pleased to have this carrier-grade wireless location system from TruePosition covering our region, which can quickly locate 112 callers in their times of need – without them needing to speak Spanish. We believe that this new public safety solution will increase our attractiveness to tourists and further stimulate the region’s economy,” commented Francisco Rojo Ortiz, Head of Systems and Communication Services, Council of the Presidency and Public Administration for the General Administration of Emergencies for the Region of Murcia.
