Bezeq International announced this week that it will install ‘cloud model’ biometric location transmitters in every Israeli elementary school. Once the system is installed, more than 160,000 teachers and 4,500 schools will be required to report using the system. The system was installed in a few hundred schools in the last two months and the entire installation project will be completed within a year and a half.


The biometric location transmitters will be installed as part of the “New Horizon” program, and will produce computerized statistical reports for the use of school principals and education ministry administrators at any point in time, using real-time figures.The statistics that will be gathered will be exported to the Education Ministry payroll system.
