CLOUD TRANSITION SERVICES - BORN IN THE PUBLIC CLOUD – EMERGENCY CALLER LOCATION INFORMATION. There are more than two million calls to New Zealand emergency services each year. Sometimes callers can’t provide an accurate address making it difficult for emergency services to identify their location. In 2016, more than 80 per cent of the calls came from a mobile phone, and Police recorded more than 1,800 incidents where they had to make a request to a network provider for a caller’s location. The Emergency Caller Location Information (ECLI) system provides emergency services with the best available probable location of a caller when they dial 111 from a mobile device. This functionality uses of a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi and cell tower information to determine the probable location of a mobile phone. The ECLI system is the outcome of collaboration between the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), emergency service providers, mobile network operators, Datacom, and Google. At the centre of the ECLI system is the Location Area Service (LAS), designed and built by Datacom using leading Microsoft and Google technologies, agile development and solution delivery based on a combination of public cloud and government private cloud.
