The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) estimates that 70% of 911 calls today are from wireless phones and that percentage is growing.(i) In context of 911 public safety networks, as of September 11, 2012 the FCC enforces Wireless E911 Phase 2 requirements, which state that wireless network operators must provide the GPS location of callers within 300 meters, within 6 minutes of a request by a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Guardly IPS delivers at least an order of magnitude improvement in mobile emergency caller location accuracy over current public safety standards, giving its customers more precise data to act on and share with first responders to ensure more immediate and personalized emergency responses.
Guardly IPS works seamlessly with the Guardly mobile safety applications for Android devices and enterprise solutions, such as Safe Campus and Building Safety solutions. Guardly IPS leverages existing infrastructure within buildings to lower the total cost of ownership and extend personal safety to regions such as underground garages and cellular dead zones that typically inhibit calls being made to emergency services.

Guardly Command is a real-time platform for emergency incident monitoring, management, communication and response, and helps law enforcement teams and administrators make faster and more informed decisions during the development of emergency incidents.
