On 27 April 2011 a conference organised by the President of UKE was held in Warsaw to summarise the Location and Information Platform with a Centralised Data Base (PLI CBD) project. This is the first project financed from the resources of the 7th axis of the Innovative Economy Operational Programme (PO IG).
The conference attracted representatives of PO IG administrative institutions, PLI CBD users, i.e. telecommunications undertakings and statutory emergency services, management of the project contractor and UKE employees involved in the project.
Work related to the implementation of the Location and Information Platform with a Centralised Data Base was completed thanks to UKE efforts. The platform supports the nation-wide IT emergency response system under elaboration of the Ministry of the Interior and Administration. The Platform allows for immediate location of callers to the 112 emergency number and to other emergency numbers, and therefore reduces the response time of statutory emergency services. It will also have a positive impact on the operation of telecommunications undertakings who will acquire technical basis for the implementation of processes related to number portability.
The PLI-CBD is prepared to serve:
The PLI CBD involves two data processing centres: one located in Borucza in the vicinity of Warsaw and another in Siemianowice Śląskie. All telecommunications undertakings with more than one million subscribers are connected to the system, while the remaining operators connect to the PLI CBD via the Internet, taking care of the necessary security levels.
The creation of the PLI CBD is related to the Act of 11 January 2008 on the amendment to the Telecommunications Act and State Medical Rescue Service Act. The amendments applied to the provisions in Article 77 and 78.
This is the first project implemented and co-financed from the resources of the European Regional Development Fund within the 7th axis of the Innovative Economy Operational Programme. The amount of PLN 19 441 214 was assigned for its implementation, according to the co-financing agreement. The contribution from the European Union funds constitutes 85 per cent of the total qualified expenditure.
The contractor for PLI CBD is a consortium of T4B Sp. z o.o. and Qumak-Sekom SA companies. The initiative was completed as scheduled on 31 March 2011 with the signing of a final protocol of acceptance.
