Are you still trying to figure out what E911 regulations apply to your organization? Finding the right information can be complicated and time consuming, so 911 Enable has compiled excerpts from and links to the state E911 legislations currently enacted. This document makes it easy to pinpoint your E911 requirements, and will help you identify the questions you need to ask your local E911 authorities and legal advisors in order to meet your E911 obligations.

In the event of an emergency, health/insurance call centers and telematics providers need the ability to relay member calls and location information to the correct Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). However, this can be challenging given that members may be mobile and/or geographically dispersed, and the call center/telematics agents are located in a centralized, static location.
911 Enable has launched the PSAP Link service to address the E911 challenges facing health/insurance call centers and telematics providers in a simple and cost-effective manner. It seamlessly integrates with the contact management console to allow agents to quickly and accurately transfer 911 calls to the correct PSAP. PSAP Link ensures that members in distress are immediately connected to the PSAP dispatcher on the priority emergency line, reducing response time delays so members have the greatest possible chance of a positive outcome. Ultimately, the improved emergency response times facilitated by PSAP Link can help to save lives and reduce claim costs by getting critical assistance to members, faster.
To help health/insurance call centers and telematics providers learn more about PSAP Link, 911 Enable has released several resources:
911 Enable’s Emergency Gateway (EGW) appliance has successfully completed interoperability testing with Microsoft Lync. It works with Lync’s inherent E911 capabilities to meet the needs of organizations with certain specific E911 requirements. First, the EGW provides interoperability with the local exchange carrier (LEC) legacy E911 call routing solution. Second, for organizations with Lync deployed alongside other IP phone systems (e.g. Cisco, Avaya), the EGW acts as a Secondary Location Information Server to centralize E911 management in a multi-vendor environment.
To learn more about the certification of the EGW with Lync, you can view the press release here. For more information on how 911 Enable’s solutions provide support for Lync, a solution brief is available for download here. And of course, you can always reach us by phone at 1-877-862-2863 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ensuring the safety of students, faculty, and staff is a primary concern for higher education organizations, especially on large campuses where it can be difficult to pinpoint the location of an emergency caller when 911 is dialed. This can become even more challenging when campuses move to IP telephony to take advantage of advanced calling features and cost savings. Fortunately, reliable and cost-effective solutions are available to help higher education organizations address these challenges head-on, in a simple and elegant manner.
911 Enable has just released a Partner Case Study which details how we collaborated with IPC Technologies to deliver an E911 solution for the legacy and ShoreTel IP phone systems at The College of William and Mary. This Partner Case Study explains why IPC Technologies picked 911 Enable for this deployment, and how 911 Enable’s advanced solutions met or exceeded the requirements of The College of William and Mary. To learn more, you can download the Partner Case Study here.
911 Enable is pleased to announce the launch of an updated website! One of the new features of this refreshed website is a complete section dedicated to emergency calling support for International organisations.
The need to keep VoIP phone users safe affects organizations around the globe, so 911 Enable has responded by offering its Emergency Gateway (EGW) appliance worldwide. The EGW automatically discovers the precise locations of IP phones on the enterprise network, and includes a robust suite of security desk notification tools. When a user places an emergency call, the EGW can route the call to on-premises security personnel and send an alert that includes the caller’s exact location and callback number. Security personnel can then dispatch assistance to distressed callers in a timely manner. The caller-location information may also be used to select a routing trunk to deliver the call to public emergency services.
Organisations in the UK deploying the EGW can also use 911 Enable’s Emergency Routing Service (ERS) to deliver emergency calls and detailed caller-location information to the public emergency network’s Emergency Control Centre. This helps organisations ensure that their private telephone networks comply with regulatory guidelines, and that they fulfill their legal obligation to minimise health and safety risks.

911 Enable will also host a webinar dedicated to this topic on March 15, 2012. You can register here.
