TORONTO, Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Alphabet Communication (AlphC) has created a revolutionary communication concept which assigns an email address to every physical address in the entire world, creating the first complete global communication network. The primary focus of Alphabet Communication at this time is emergency and crisis communication with a potential for expansion in the future.
Imagine if First Responders had the ability to email an area and contact its occupants. AlphC, a unique communication platform permits this. This platform may one day save your life once implemented by first responders in your area.
In an emergency, an alert is sent to all residents via email and text. Based on the response "I am safe," "I am away" or "I need help," rescue missions can be targeted, site specific and planned to the addresses. Based on the response the appropriate colors are reflected on a crisis map in real-time for First Responders. Red symbols signify addresses requiring immediate help.
Alerts are controlled by First Responders. User addresses are authenticated via cell phone number verification. Data is collected on the number of occupants along with their age cohort (names are not collected for privacy protection). As all AlphC emails are geocoded they add a layer of transparency and security that does not exist with current email.
While other companies are attempting similar applications, Shafin Valla the founder of AlphC finds they are limited in scope. "While social media companies like Facebook are offering a Safety Check, it only notifies friends on the network." This limited access will not aid in getting First Responders to those in need. Valla continues, "Blackberry AtHoc is also meant to help in emergency or crisis situations but it is only for large institutions; thus, not connecting the general population." AlphC confirms their unique communication platform does not exist anywhere. Patent applications were filed in May 2017 by the Intellectual Property Law Firm Knobbe Martens.
AlphC believes this technology is imperative to keeping emergency response methods current and progressive globally. This will impact all crisis communication going forward. The company's preference is having Licensing Agreements with the relevant authorities based on local regulation, knowledge and thus limiting barriers. "Our technology can be embedded into any emergency preparedness platform currently used," according to Valla.
