How To Keep an E911 Implementation Simple
The lack of location information attached to an outgoing 9-1-1 call placed from behind a multi-line telephone system can result in tragedy. Unfortunately, the majority of organizations that utilize a PBX are either unaware that an issue even exists, or have found the task to implement for E9-1-1 to be too complex or cost-prohibitive. Add VoIP phones, SIP trunking, multi-site campuses, or remote workers into the mix and a telecom director is suddenly faced with a project that seems insurmountable, both cost-wise and from a time management perspective. It’s a project, though, that can’t be ignored: measures must be taken to ensure compliance with legislation, avoid liability issues, and most importantly – protect the organization’s people.
With so many pieces of the puzzle to put together it can be difficult to know where to begin. This white paper explains the different pieces to consider when implementing E9-1-1 and suggests best options on simplifying the process.
