Over Sixty Million Mexican Citizens in Eleven Different States Are Now Safer Thanks to Carbyne and Google’s Android™ ELS

October 14, 2019

Carbyne and Google are now providing Android ELS location services to agencies in 11 different States in Mexico and have made the service available, at no cost to callers, nationwide through Telcel, with more carriers to come.

(October 14, 2019, Mexico City, Mexico), Since the July launch of Carbyne and GoogleTM​​’s partnership to provide Android  ​​ELS in Mexico, the two companies have initiated service in 11 states, delivering emergency location and expediting incident resolution for millions of 9-1-1 calls.  Recent additions include the States of Campeche, Chihuahua, Michoacan, and Zacatecas.

A key enabler for the delivery of Android ELS in Mexico was Carbyne’s collaboration with mobile operators to permit the sending of SMS and HTTPS communications during a 9-1-1 call.   At this time, we are happy to announce that Telcel has completed all of the technical changes needed to support transmitting ELS location via Data SMS during a 9-1-1 call.

Telcel has also enabled data sponsorship for Android ELS HTTPS location data. This allows ELS location data to be transmitted via HTTPS for any caller, regardless of whether their phone has a data plan or an active balance on their SIM card.  Mobile data sponsorship is fully sponsored by Carbyne and allows all callers, not just those who can afford mobile data, to benefit from Android ELS.  Carbyne is offering this service with Telcel to all 911 agencies throughout Mexico today and will be adding more mobile operators as soon as they complete the required technical changes.

“We are thrilled by the results that we have seen in Mexico in the first 13 weeks since launch,” said Carbyne CEO, Amir Elichai. “ Android ELS fully works with Telcel today, and Carbyne continues to work diligently with the other mobile operators to get their full support for the delivery of life-saving Android ELS data.  We will be ready for the remaining mobile operators as soon they are set up to deliver.  It has been a great honor to work with public safety and mobile operators throughout Mexico to save lives every day.”
