gpost, a globally patented intelligent messaging platform provides new capabilities to the Imcon Internet Backpack, delivering critical communication services for the duration of virtually any emergency circumstance
gpost, the intelligent messaging platform, has entered into a strategic partnership with Imcon International Inc. Imcon plans to integrate the gpost messaging technology into the revolutionary Imcon Internet Backpack. This partnership empowers Imcon Internet Backpack users with a powerful, multi-channel messaging platform to establish and maintain consistent communication with relevant persons worldwide using military-grade encrypted closed-loop technology. In addition, gpost has added the Imcon internet Backpack solution to its product offering for customers worldwide.
gpost is well known as an innovative, global messaging platform able to send digital messages to hyper-specific geographical locations dynamically. The technology is already being used in several countries by end-users, law enforcement personnel, and organizations with a need to inform their constituency to manage communications better before, during, and after impactful events.
”As a former Chief Inspector/Commander with the United States Marshal Service and the former head of the largest Fugitive Task Force in the world, it is paramount that we can communicate with each other when pursuing the most violent and dangerous fugitives across the globe.”, says Lenny DePaul, Former Commander U.S. Marshall Service. “The combination of the gpost multi-channel intelligent messaging platform into the revolutionary Imcon Internet Backpack is extraordinary and offers groundbreaking capabilities. I believe having a way to communicate without interference is more important than any piece of equipment you can carry! This monumental way of messaging is extremely valuable. It will prove to be life-saving technology in a Law Enforcement/Military environment.”, says DePaul.
Recent events such as the Australian wildfires, 911 system failures, and the current COVID-19 crisis illustrate the intense need for a robust and scalable communication platform that can resist infrastructure failure. Other less well-adopted communication technologies have shown the need for accessible, free, and readily available technology to the end-user.
“Emergency responders, disaster relief groups, and field command frequently suffer from lack of up to date information, which may be critical in a rapidly evolving situation.”, says Apostolis Sambanis, Ph.D. Adjunct Assistant Professor Emergency Management and Continuity Planning Program University of Illinois at Chicago. “Applications of mobile-edge computing-enabled Internet of Things has been recognized as an integral part of emergency response and location-based services. A partnership between gpost and Imcon bridges that gap by utilizing gpost’s tech messaging tool which uses a multitude of infrastructures and reduces strain on mobile networks and Imcon’s drop-in solution to bring multi-channel connectivity to anyone who requires internet in the most extreme situations.”, adds Sambanis.
“Real-time effective communications are paramount to the success of hospitals and emergency rooms,” said Dr. James Sirleaf, who is an Emergency Room physician and Imcon Advisory Board member. “In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, timely information for healthcare professionals is a necessity. The Imcon Internet Backpack in conjunction with the gpost app provides the medical community the ability to communicate more effectively and know there is always a connection to share the information on. The bottom line is when hospital and medical facilities have the ability to communicate information on a real-time basis with the proper user base, lives can and will be saved.”
The Imcon Internet Backpack, coupled with the gpost App, brings a new dawn to the emergency response scenario. Major disasters have proven to bring most, if not all, services to a halt leaving large groups of people with no communication to the outside world. Emergency personnel, loved ones, associates, insurance personnel, and public utility personnel is disconnected while recovery takes place, frequently for days, weeks, or even months. The Imcon Internet Backpack provides an immediate, robust, and self-sustaining connection point for anyone responsible for establishing and maintaining communication with the outside world during these events.
Tracy Allan, President and CEO of GPost Corporation America, commented on the recent Australian fires, “Without electricity and internet, communities were left with no communication with the outside world.” Further, “The Imcon Backpack Solution allows portable Wi-Fi hotspots when in range. Imcon Internet Backpack provides important redundancy for the gpost Intelligent Messaging System, allowing emergency alerts to be distributed via multi-device and multi-channel. This relationship extends the channels from mobile towers, fixed-line, and WIFI to also include satellite.” says Allan.
gpost is a globally patented, intelligent messaging platform designed to activate more intentional responses and enhancing security by connecting relevant people during a potential crisis based on geography, groups or emergency contacts. gpost provides more direct and essential connections between us, our loved ones, and agencies who have information about events that directly affect our lives. gpost solves most problems associated with current messaging technology, empowering agencies charged with distributing alerts an ability to send relevant alerts to the area directly affected by the event. So, if you or your loved ones are in the affected area, you are notified immediately. All while maintaining the most effective closed-loop communication available to you and your group.
