Carbyne, the Platinum Award Winner in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program for Best Emergency Response for Fed/State/Local Government, is pleased to announce c-All has been nominated to compete in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.
A multi-awarded national real-time emergency communication platform, Carbyne leads the most advanced public safety technology for emergency infrastructure, acting as the ultimate solution for NG911 (next generation 911).
The company’s ecosystem compiles of advanced IP based call handling system (CPE), full infrastructure and caller solutions.
Acting as the gateway for delivering rich and smart data to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), helping call takers analyze and process what is happening in real-time, provide accurate support, slash time to dispatch and ultimately save lives.

Carbyne systems integrate seamlessly and risk-free into any existing 911 legacy infrastructure, providing you with a system that goes beyond anything the public or private sector has seen before.
Public safety communications have not changed much since the first emergency call made in 1937. However, as communications technology has shifted from landlines to smartphones, public safety agencies have been struggling to keep up with the new wave of devices.
For agencies around the globe, many find themselves between a rock and a hard place: they want keep up with the technology, but due to budget constrictions they must plan technological upgrades ten years in advance.
The reality is that the way we communicate shifts rapidly.
IP communications and video chatting have become the standards, and today, public safety agencies are entirely on board with implementing ‘next generation’ solutions.
For PSAP’s, ‘next generation’ means IP enabled infrastructure and enhanced communications that include video, GPS, and audio but for many states, cities, and countries there is a roadblock to adopting IP solutions.
Often, to gain the full benefit of IP communications, citizens needed to download a third-party app.
For those in crisis situations, as many who call emergency services are, they need assistance immediately.
Having to download an app to talk to 911, even if it provides a more accurate location or the ability to stream video, is an almost impossible task.
For Carbyne, as a technology company, they knew that an app was only a stop-gap.By the time a user has reached the app store, whatever event they’re witnessing is over, and they need an ambulance, police, or fire service.
They knew that it would be nearly impossible to circumvent the hard-wired three digits 911 (or 999, 112, 000, or others) that connect us with first responders.
So Carbyne set their Dev team a task to completely overhaul emergency communications so that citizens can stream video direct to 911 without an app.
The Future of Public Safety Communications
c-All is the first of its kind technology that brings the next generation of 911 to the public without the need for any application.
By simply dialing 911 from your smart phone, with the help of the c-All technology:
- Your call will be transformed to a smart Carbyne call
- Forwarding live video streaming from your incident
- Together with your exact location (including indoor) to the PSAP on the other side
- 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
The c-All technology doesn’t require the user on the other side to download an app, while the use is seamless and easy to operate for both sides.
For the first time in history, citizens can easily open a streaming live video directly to emergency services along with their exact location, and the ability to discreetly text with first responders, NO APP REQUIRED.
Call centers can now provide more accurate and immediate help, without the need for Telco integration.
But what does this mean?
Primarily, they’ve brought Next Generation 911 to everyone.
Thanks to Carbyne’s new technology and ecosystem, any modern smartphone can now instantly provide an accurate location from the GPS chip, streaming video, AND text with 911.
Carbyne has been deployed on almost every continent around the globe, and they’ve picked up some key insights and even more fascinating statistics.
When using streaming video, a 911 Call Takers’ understanding of what’s happening on a scene increases, times to dispatch decrease, and less time is spent dealing with qualifying questions such as “where are you?” and, “what’s happening?”
All of this adds up to less time being spent on the phone, a faster response time by first responders, and fewer resources used (which means fewer tax dollars spent).
