Emergency/ Public Safety Answering Points


— The new localization service for emergency calls.


Locating the caller using smartphone technology

Giving citizens the opportunity to communicate their position via SMS or other channels: the AML service is revolutionizing localization services in the PSAP. Beta 80 is at the forefront of integrating this technology into first and second level PSAP, in accordance to the European reference protocols.

From SMS to a wider service

Our Advanced Mobile Location (AML) is revolutionizing the caller localization in PSAPs. The service allows the caller to automatically send their position via SMS.

This service helps respond with great precision and speed even in remote or unknown areas. Beta 80 is at the forefront in the AML integration of AML, in accordance with all specific European protocols.

In 2014 a small revolution in the world of emergency services took place: in the UK, British Telecom, together with other companies, created the AML service.

Since then, smartphones can automatically send an SMS to the emergency number with their coordinates, without the citizen having to take further actions.

Google® and Apple® actively collaborate in the project by enabling AML services on their smartphones, country by country.

One of the first in Europe

The benefits are enormous; an AML smartphone recognizes the emergency call and identifies the best method for locating the smartphone (GPS, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, cell triangulation, etc.) and quickly collects the position data, automatically sending them to the PSAP, via SMS or HTTPS message.

This leads to a saving of precious time in the emergency response since the rescuers are dispatched earlier and with greater accuracy.

The quality of this localization is far greater than the normal localization on a “phone cell” basis used by PSAP worldwide.

Beta 80 is among the first companies in Europe to integrate the AML system. AML technology has been part of the emergency technology plaform since 2016, together with the Life 1st suite.
