FEDRO (Federal Roads Office) operates in the field of road transport, developing principles for sustainable federal policy in this area. Our cloud-based communication service is responsible for sending SMS messages and rapidly providing information on exceptional events and situations on our federal roads. Messages can be sent to ASTRA’s partners (regional units / works yards) and to internal decision-makers via the Swiss Traffic Management Centre (VMZ-CH).
"The advantage of a communication service like eCall is its ability to spread information to our partners and internal offices rapidly and efficiently. This technology, together with its associated services and options, is a de facto global standard and supports messaging to mobile devices irrespective of location. The working relationship, the services we receive and the support from Dolphin Systems are always extremely professional and pleasant." - Marcel Balli, Head of Traffic Telematics VMZ-CH
In Switzerland, the police use eCall as an additional information channel in child abduction cases. The SMS service complements the national alerting system already in place, and enables alerts to be activated and disseminated extremely rapidly and widely.

In Federal Bern, we ensure the technical processes for sending SMS text messages abroad run smoothly. The Internet platform Itineris, operated by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (EDA), enables international travellers to deposit information on their travel destination, any co-travellers and their contact details. In the case of violent conflict or natural disaster, the EDA can rapidly warn the persons involved and keep them informed.
