BUFFALO, N.Y. and THE INTERNATIONAL WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS EXPO, LAS VEGAS – March 24, 2017 – CTG (NASDAQ:CTG), an information technology (IT) solutions and services company, announced today that Andrew Knight, a senior consultant with the company, will present a case study at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE). Held March 27-31, 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, IWCE is a premier event for communications technology professionals that brings together more than 7,000 attendees from a variety of sectors, including government, public safety, utilities, transportation and telecommunications.
Knight will present “Transforming Public Safety Beyond the U.S.,” a case study that will draw on his experience as a member of the 999 (the U.K.’s emergency number and equivalent of 911) liaison committee and will look at the deployment of eCall. Mandatory in all new cars sold in Europe after April 2018, eCall automatically notifies first responders in the event of an airbag deployment, while simultaneously providing GPS data, impact data and information on the vehicle involved.
eCall will typically reduce the response times of emergency personnel by 50 percent in the European context. Knight will discuss the technology options involved, the expected impact on public safety, adoption challenges and relevant lessons learned that are applicable to the rollout of emergency systems in other parts of the world, particularly the U.S.
Session Details Include:
Session: “Transforming Public Safety Beyond the U.S.”
Date: Wednesday, March 29, 2017 from 2:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. PDT
Location: The Las Vegas Convention Center, Room S230
In addition, Knight and other executives from CTG, including Graham Ring, managing director of DMS and CTG’s operations in the United Kingdom, will be at the event to provide details on the company’s work with law enforcement agencies and service providers. In addition to offering a wide range of IT solutions and services, CTG also created the Disclosure Management System (DMS) used by carriers and all law enforcement agencies in the U.K. to jointly address a singular challenge: how to quickly and effectively manage requests for information while ensuring the lawful retention, disclosure, and use of voice and electronic communications records.
DMS radically reduces the administrative tasks related to government surveillance and investigation requests while providing law enforcement agencies with much faster access to lawfully disclosed information - all while drawing on the solution’s inherent ability to safeguard privacy rights. CTG is also working with communication service providers and agencies in the U.S. and invites IWCE attendees to learn more about DMS and the company by visiting booth #373.
