Australia to launch tenders for 000 Emergency Call service

Monday 26 June 2017 | 15:44 CET | News
The Australian Government has announced it will soon issue a Request for Tender (RFT) to deliver the next-generation Triple Zero Emergency Call Service with integrated location-based data services. The tender process follows an Expressions of Interest (EOI) process conducted in late 2016. The service aims to enable the capability to provide emergency services with the GPS location of a person calling Triple Zero from a mobile phone. GPS data will assist in emergencies where the caller is unable to provide details of their location.
