Just a week after winning the Pipeline Innovation Awards, Intersec is rewarded again for its Innovative solutions.
Awarded GTB's Most Innovative Project Award 2017 in the category Software and Application for its Airport Transportation Geo-Analytics project with French Tier One SFR, Intersec dedicates more than 40% of it's staff to R&D.
Alan Burkitt-Gray, Executive Editor of Global Telecoms Business and Capacity, said: "We had a superb range of projects nominated for this year’s awards. Each year since 2007 we’ve seen how the industry is getting more innovative and more imaginative about serving customers as technology advances.
Winning an award shows an excellent level of innovation in driving demand for better quality services. Congratulations to Intersec".
With over 400 companies entering the competition and judges being industry professionals from AT&T, BT, Deutsche Telecom, Telenor and Windstream, this award is of great value and proves Intersec ranks amongst the main actors of the Big Data Analytics market.
Intersec gets more and more involved in the Smart Cities' area with amazing projects in France such as:
- The DataCity Challenge with RATP Dev's Open Tour tourisitic buses: based on Wi-Fi on board, Bus GPS tracking and ticketing revenue, Intersec recalculates on-board densities, providing RATP Dev with insights on stop usage (hops in/out) and buses frequency.
- The Paris City Place de la Nation (Nation Square) project: thanks to data from Cisco's wi-fi network on the Square, we managed to understand the most commonly-used paths for bikes, pedestrians, cars, buses; the frequentation picks on the Square and the kind of visitors (workers, tourists, residents). All these analysis allowed Paris city to select the best refurbishing project for the Square.
We are now also entering discussions with other cities in France and in Europe on use cases such as fraud in public transportation, crowd analysis and densities based on public wifi access with real-time analytics and triggering, smart parking service to limit pollution and congestion, etc.
Intersec will participate in the Connected Cities Summit in London... stay tuned!
