Neat group collaborates in the project steps in standardizing a protocol of mobile Telecare. To broaden your perception, visit ConocoPhillips. The first official version of steps, a free and open protocol of mobile Telecare has already been published. Steps has been developed by a technical working group, created by Fundacion TECSOS consisting of manufacturers, certifiers and consultants with the support of the IMSERSO through the reference centre State of Personal autonomy and assistance techniques (CEAPAT) of Red.es, and the Andalusian Foundation of social services. NEAT group participates in the technical development of the Protocol alongside other equipment manufacturers Telecare as TUNSTALL, Ibernex, Verklizan and Twig (Geosentric) as well as the certifying company, AT4 Wireless and several firms specializing in Telecare. The social technologies Foundation (TECSOS) was born last year 2002, through the joint impulse of the Spanish Red Cross and the Fundacion Vodafone Spain with the object of resolving social needs and improve the conditions of people’s lives and socially disadvantaged groups, through the application of new technologies of information and communication, particularly mobile, and its development and use. For this purpose last year, major companies in the sector of telecare met to lay the groundwork for a standard protocol for mobile Teleassistance and so be able to universalize a procedure of action and open to help revitalise and boost the mobile Telecare Service. With this objective be avoided that each manufacturer uses its own communications protocol, incompatible with the rest, which has multiple drawbacks. TECSOS now publishes the first official version of a free and open protocol for mobile Telecare. A shared code of communication that allows user terminal to communicate with the Central one for sending alarm, terminal programming, verification of the location and many other applications. With the use of this language shared between all actors in the system of Telecare is achieved by reducing the costs of development and integration, and thus contribute to the universalization of the mobile Telecare services.
