Carbyne, a global pioneer in public safety technology, a global leader in public safety technology, and a Platinum Award Winner in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is partnering with Cisco, to deliver cloud-based and IoT-enabled solutions for emergency dispatch centers.
As a Cisco Solution Partner, Carbyne’s next generation emergency services technology will be offered as an integrated part of Cisco® Kinetic for Cities, a secure IoT data platform which provides automated data sharing across community infrastructure, smart city solutions, applications and connected devices.
Carbyne will be the only 9-1-1 solution available in the Cisco Marketplace, with additional solutions for international emergency numbers, social worker safety and private safety.
This new partner solution will offer emergency service providers the option to choose between a full cloud-based call-handling ecosystem, or an NG911 rich data plugin for legacy systems, with neither option requiring replacement of existing solutions or infrastructure.

We act as the gateway for delivering rich and smart data from connected devices to Public Answering Points (PSAP’s), helping call takers analyze and process what is happening in real-time, provide accurate support, reduce operational costs, slash time to dispatch and ultimately save lives.

Carbyne delivers rich, accurate, insightful data from any connected device to emergency dispatch centers, providing responders with highly accurate location services, real-time video streaming, voice over IP, chat, and other potentially life-saving information.
Integrating Carbyne’s solution with Cisco will allow local, government-run IoT devices and sensors to interact and share data, to serve as a crucial source of information for emergency responders.
The connected infrastructure and components enhance situational awareness for first responders, improve resource allocation, reduce decision-making time, and decrease errors – helping to bolster emergency responsiveness to citizens’ needs.
Cisco® Kinetic for Cities aims to improve operational effectiveness, promote flexibility, create opportunities and reduce risk for ongoing smart city projects.

The cloud-based platform and Carbyne’s public safety solution will allow emergency dispatch centers to be established in remote locations, virtually anywhere with an internet connection, and ensure functionality even during emergency incidents and disasters.
Cisco’s integrated security portfolio provides added layers of security to keep assets and caller data safe.
“We are thrilled to build our unique public safety solution with Cisco’s technology, bringing safer environments to communities looking to expand their smart cities capabilities and leverage existing investment,” explains Amir Elichai, CEO and Founder of Carbyne.
“Together with Cisco, we will provide government agencies and emergency services the tools they need to harness advanced digital technologies for the safety of their citizens.”
“As a global partner, we are benefitting from this relationship by enhancing the distribution of our next generation emergency services solutions across the world.”
“This partnership with one of the global leaders in technology represents a huge vote of confidence in our lifesaving solutions. Together with Cisco, Carbyne is introducing the best next generation call handling solution in the world.”
“The new solution establishes a secure cloud-delivered, geographically-survivable, and scalable emergency communications capability,” added Craig Coale, Senior Advisor for Public Safety and Defense at Cisco.
“By leveraging Cisco’s market leading collaboration and contact center solutions, this cooperation delivers critical interoperability between Carbyne and Cisco’s IoT data platform, Kinetic for Cities, for unprecedented community insights that keep citizens safer, informed, and more connected,.”
“This is the next evolution of public safety.”
