WEST IS THE LEADING E911 SERVICE PROVIDER FOR CALL ROUTING AND LOCATION
As an industry-leading E911 service provider, West helps carriers simplify 911 location data management and call routing while meeting FCC regulations.
We deliver pristine data transmitted over a stable, highly available network. As a result, over 100 wireless, ILEC, CLEC and VoIP carriers choose West as their E911 service provider.
Phrases like “robust technology” and “network reliability” aren’t buzzwords to us. They’re the drivers behind every solution and service we deliver because, in an emergency, every call must be routed correctly and every second counts.
While we aren’t attorneys, we’re experienced with the nuances of the FCC’s E911 regulations. However, they’ll never drive our innovations and services because only people with ideas and passion can do that.
In addition, our solution architects are constantly striving to make our existing 911 services more reliable and more secure. We’re also building a foundation for the future so that 911 is always available to every caller from every device no matter what new platforms emerge.
Finally, it’s easy to get excited about the technologies that are making our lives more connected and convenient. However, West focuses on the ones that make us all safer. Since 1979, we’ve managed 911 so that carriers don’t have to. For us and for you, that business is always personal.
Our wireless E911 solutions support the essential connection between your wireless callers and the public safety professionals and first responders who can help.
ACCURACY COMPLIANCE TESTING
Accuracy Compliance Testing (ACT) simplifies wireless 911 location testing, helping carriers to measure and report on Phase II accuracy and perform base station almanac updates. Wireless carriers can demonstrate compliance with the FCC’s E911 regulatory requirements while minimizing strain on already taxed network resources.
In addition to meeting 911 FCC location accuracy requirements, you can:
- Test existing PSAP or county locations
- Ensure FCC compliance and reporting
- Measure accuracy drive testing
- Perform BSA optimization and maintenance
Our E911 services ensure reliable call routing and location determination for all 911 calls including Phase I/II, VoLTE and VoWiFi. Regardless of device or location, our industry-leading technologies route each 911 call quickly and accurately so your customers can get the help they need, where they need it.
Emergency Assist helps you quickly determine the location of a subscriber’s mobile device–whether it is in idle mode or active use. This automated E911 solution for wireless carriers significantly simplifies the location request process, allowing emergency responders to rapidly react when your wireless subscriber can’t be reached through their cell phone.
LOCATION PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT
West’s Location Performance Management (LPM) is a robust suite of location tracking tools and dashboards for wireless carriers. LPM compiles and aggregates complex data sets to help you proactively manage and report on location accuracy, while complying with the FCC’s wireless E911 location regulations.
LPM arms you with key insights to help you :
- Manage 911 caller location and identify areas for improvement
