Romanian IT&C integrator TeamNet Group and telecom operator Orange Romania, the local branch of Orange Group, will contribute to the implementation of a cross-European research & development project that will see the deployment of last generation emergency services all over the continent.

The two companies will be part of an international consortium that will develop the NEXES (Next Generation Emergency Services) project. NEXES aims to innovate on European emergency services via R&D of advanced IP communication systems and technologies.

“NEXES is a highly important initiative of the European Union, which is part of the Horizon 2020 research & development program that has the potential to contribute in a sustainable manner to revolutionizing emergency services through their democratization and standardization all over Europe,” said Bogdan Padiu (in picture), CEO of Teamnet Group.

Coordinated by RINICOM, leader in providing wireless broadband communications solutions and surveillance systems in Great Britain, in partnership with the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Prevention Office, the consortium combines expertise from 17 public and private organizations in ten European countries.

Teamnet and Orange Romania are part of this consortium alongside Ambulance and Emergency Physicians Association (Turkey), Aimtech (Great Britain), Azienda Regionale Emergenza Urgenza (Italia), Ministero Dell’interno (Italia), Deveryware (France), European Union of the Deaf (Belgium), Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (Greece), Insta (Finland), Omnitor (Sweden), Police University College (Finland), Préfecture de Police (France), Telekom Slovenia (Slovenia) and University of Ljubljana (Slovenia).

The cross-European project will take place between 2015 and 2018 and aims to integrate cross-European emergency informatics services, streamline integrated communication in emergency situations- including social media channels- and detect more efficiently the location of an emergency situation.

As part of this project, Orange will provide expertise and telecom infrastructure based on which Teamnet will develop and integrate software services for applications dedicated to national emergency services. Apart from voice messages, multimedia services can also be sent, so that medical representatives can have access from any type of device to intervene in emergency situations.
