Belgian Provider Upgrades LBS for Emergency Calls
Tuesday, January 15, 2019 | Comments

Telenet selected Infradata and BroadForward to deliver location-based services (LBS), replacing the existing legal system. Telenet, the largest provider of cable broadband services in Belgium that acquired mobile operator BASE in 2016, plans to expand its ability to provide location information, which is needed for a range of services, including emergency calls for police, firefighting and ambulance services, the company said.

Infradata and BroadForward will provide access to location information of devices across legacy and next-generation mobile networks. Infradata is a certified reseller of the range of BroadForward products, which includes next-generation products for routing, interworking, security and number portability.

“Approximately 70 to 80 percent of all emergency calls are made from a mobile device, and with the network location information we can provide additional information to emergency services so they know where to find people when it matters,” said Luk Bruynseels, vice president mobile technology at Telenet. “As the leading expert in BroadForward products, Infradata successfully replaced the legacy system with BroadForward’s state-of-the-art LBS solution that works in a multivendor environment and across network types.”
