NEW YORK, June 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB), a global provider of secure solutions for the e-Government, Public Safety, HealthCare, and Finance sectors, announced today that it has shipped equipment for two new pilots in the Middle East of its COVID-19 citizen quarantine and containment tracking technology solution. This shipment follows the previous shipments of similar equipment for two other recently announced pilots.
The solution, which is comprised of a proprietary secure smartphone with an optional lightweight and waterproof ankle-bracelet, is designed to assist government efforts in combating the spread of the coronavirus through people location tracking and stay-at-home compliance rules being implemented around the globe. SuperCom has a demonstrated commitment to secured boundaries projects which have been used to successfully identify, monitor and validate credentials of tens of millions of people in many countries across the globe in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
"We are continuing to see and pursue new opportunities related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether it is for coronavirus home quarantine tracking or for electronic offender tracking due to the release of prisoners, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to weigh on the supply-demand balance in our industry. It seems our potential government customers are looking to not only curb the current outbreaks their nations might be experiencing, but also proactively prepare for potential future waves and spreads of infectious diseases. This pandemic caught many nations by surprise and preventive planning, we believe, is important as well. We are proud to have opportunities to try help with both current outbreaks, and future ones," said Arie Trabelsi, President and CEO of SuperCom.
"We are still facing quite a challenge. The quantities of units in discussion, for numerous countries in parallel, is higher than we have seen before. We are in the process of increasing our manufacturing capabilities to allow production of higher quantities of units in short time frames while maintaining the quality and excellence of our products. Tracking locations of individuals accurately and securely is difficult. It takes years of experience and significant investment to master, especially when you're looking for a solution to function almost anywhere in the world. We have struck a compassionate balance between citizen comfort and convenience while providing government agencies with the safety and security features they need to confidently monitor those with location restrictions, such as home containment. Our technology is scalable, designed for rapid deployment and highly configurable for multiple risk levels and containment models. It has been deployed across the globe and proven successful in different environments and infrastructures," concluded Arie Trabelsi.
