microDATA, a TCS Company
microDATA GIS, Inc. was acquired by TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) in July 2012.
Our business operations will operate as microDATA, a TCS company, and will continue to
provide leading Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) software and solutions.
The acquisition of microDATA's technology and expertise expands TCS' end-to-end public
safety communication solutions in several ways. As a pioneer in Geographical Information
Systems (GIS), microDATA has a mature GIS product and tools suite, comprehensive training
programs and large, highly scalable GIS data gathering and consolidation capabilities.
These capabilities are key to the business, because NG9-1-1 solutions require a detailed
and comprehensive GIS data set in order to operate. microDATA also adds a comprehensive
suite of Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP)-based customer premise equipment, including
computer-aided dispatch integration, dashboards and call management products to the TCS
suite of solutions. microDATA's three channel alliances with CenturyLink, a second large
nationwide operator, and regional operator Cincinnati Bell – all industry leaders in public
safety communications – enhance distribution for TCS' public safety solutions. microDATA's
market position and history of accomplishments has grown steadily since its inception in 1983
and complements TCS' history of serving the public safety community, including its recent
SMS911 and mobile alert solutions.
