New Partner Case Study – GTRI

911 Enable often partners with VoIP/UC resellers to help them meet their customers’ E911 needs.

One of these resellers is GTRI (Global Technology Resources, Inc.), a leading network consulting firm that provides solutions for data centers, unified communications, wireless/mobility and more. GTRI works closely with their customers to help them reach their business goals, and needed to find an E911 solution for their customers with minimal administration requirements, real-time address validation and provisioning capabilities, and on-site security desk routing and notification features. The solution also had to help their customers meet E911 legislation requirements, and be certified with Cisco. GRTI decided to partner with 911 Enable to provide E911 solutions for their customers that they could stand behind with confidence.

To learn more about how 911 Enable and GTRI work together meet customer needs, read the Partner Case Study.

New Resources – Remote Location Manager and E911 Softphone Locator

Two new resources are available that provide additional information on two components of our Emergency Gateway (EGW) appliance.

Remote Location Manager Feature Brief – The Remote Location Manager (RLM) allows off-campus users to self-provision their locations in real-time, ensuring that should they need to dial 911, the call and their up-to-date location information will be sent to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). The RLM is available for Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Avaya Communications Manager, and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 deployments.

E911 Softphone Locator Data Sheet – The E911 Softphone Locator (ESL) is software that allows the EGW to automatically track the location of on-campus soft phones. It also enables E911 support for many advanced unified communications features such as shared line appearance, extension mobility, concurrent logins, and shared workspaces.
