Hexagon to upgrade Balearic Islands 112 system


112 Balearic Islands selected Hexagons Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division to upgrade emergency call-taking and dispatching for the Spanish archipelago, which includes the islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza.

The Balearic Islands, a pioneer in adopting 112 for emergency calls, will replace its 28-year-old system with HxGN OnCall Dispatch. OnCall Dispatch will provide a modern and resilient system for 112 call takers and dispatchers serving the regions 1.2 million residents and 16 million annual tourists. In 2022, 112 Balearic Islands received 700,000 calls and managed more than 129,000 incidents.

The system we currently use is from 1995, so it is totally obsolete, said Vicente Soria, director of 112 Balearic Islands. We needed to modernize it, taking into account the technological advances that have occurred in recent years, to provide a better service both to the citizens of the islands and to the tourists who visit us.

The Balearic Islands system joins Spains leading public safety agencies in using Hexagon technology, including 112 Andalusia, Madrids police department and Barcelonas police and fire departments.

Its an honor to upgrade one of Spains first 112 systems to HxGN OnCall Dispatch, said Maximilian Weber, senior vice president, EMEA, Hexagons Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division. The efforts of 112 Balearic Islands to modernize its emergency call-taking and dispatching system with a more resilient, scalable solution can serve as a model for other agencies in Spain and Europe.

Hexagon partnered with a consortium formed by NTT DATA and Plexus Technologies to implement and maintain the new system.

Upgrade Your Wind Power Knowledge with Infocus International’s Online Course

Elevate your understanding of wind power with Infocus International’s best rated Live Online Workshop, Mastering Wind Power, starting on 22nd August 2023.

A comprehensive, up-to-date and business-focused roadmap to success in delivering wind power growth, today and tomorrow. Attendees will gain an excellent understanding of all the key factors facing wind power developers and investors, from resource assessment and energy production complexities, through technology trends, project development and planning challenges, to financial returns and risks.

The course will include the illustration of key concepts using online tools, wind resource datasets, energy yield, financial and other simple calculations, along with discussion of key planning and market environment considerations.

In keeping with the business-focused theme of the course, any illustrative materials are designed to provide time-efficient clarification of the key course takeaways, aimed at commercially-focused business developers and investors. They are therefore accessible to non-experts, not designed to replicate the complex or in-depth detailed planning undertaken – over much longer periods! – by experienced engineers and technical teams.

Bangkok, Thailand, Apr 1, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – UPGRADE, a platform that enables NFT collectors to increase the value of their NFTs, has released dates for its whitelist event, token presale, and public sale. The platform is an ecosystem of tools designed to revolutionize the NFT market. UPGRADE has been in operation since 2017 and has delivered over 50 services to the crypto and blockchain market. The platform is mainly targeting NFT collectors and NFT artists from developing countries.

The non-fungible token (NFT) market is gradually becoming a force to reckon with in the crypto space. With a platform like UPGRADE, NFT collectors and artists can utilize the UPGRADE toolset to upgrade their NFTs. This is undoubtedly a revolutionary concept in the crypto industry. One of the core missions of UPGRADE is to ensure the NFT owners have the power over their creations.

The UPGRADE Whitelist Date

The UPGRADE project will allow some people to get early and guaranteed access to mint NFTs at a particular date and time. According to the UPGRADE team, whitelisting of NFT artists will begin on April 1st, 2022, at 5:00 AM GMT+0, and will close on May 15th, 2022, at 11:59 PM GMT+0.

To register for the whitelist, go to the UPGRADE website and click on the whitelist icon. After doing that, proceed to connect the Ethereum wallet address that will be used to buy the tokens. NFT artists and collectors should endeavor to input the correct address as the UPGRADE platform only accepts USDT, BUSD, and USDC as ERC-20 on the Ethereum network. It is important to note that the wallet number cannot be changed once it has been registered.


The token presale is scheduled to start on May 20th, 2022, at exactly 5:00 AM GMT+0, and will close on May 31st, 2022, at 11:59 PM GMT+0. UPGRADE presale will come in two batches, with the first back selling at $1, while the second batch will sell at $1.07 at a discount of 52% and 49%, respectively.

$XUP is an ERC-20 compliant token that serves as the governance token of the UPGRADE platform. It can also serve as the creative shop native token, and users can earn $XUP from by renting out their NFTs. With 100,000,000 in total supply, holders can exchange the ERC-20 $XUP token for a $XUP token on another blockchain network.
