St. Cloud, MN: The Greater St. Cloud Development Corporation (GSDC) of St. Cloud Minnesota recently
awarded the first I-Award for for-profit organizations recognizing and celebrating the innovation and
creativity in area businesses. GeoComm won the I-Award in the established business category for GeoLynx
Spatial Router, a NENA i3 Emergency Call Routing Function/Location Validation Function (ECRF/LVF) which
is currently being deployed in Texas.
GeoLynx Spatial Router is part of an end-to-end NG9-1-1 GIS solution that includes 9-1-1 GIS data management,
aggregation and quality control, and systems to provision GIS data to both ECRF/LVF and tactical
9-1-1 mapping systems.
"We are honored with having been selected the inaugural recipient of this prestigious award;
said Tom Grones President and CEO of GeoComm. The software platform that has been developed,
tested, refined, installed and optimized has been a labor of love over the past five years
for many people here at GeoComm. It is a process that is integral to the next generation of
our 9-1-1 systems in the US. This system will help direct emergency calling data on IP
networks from any communications device to the 9-1-1 center most capable of providing
lifesaving services to our fellow citizens during times of their greatest urgent need."
The GSDC is a private collaboration of approximately 70 regional business and community leaders within
