By Rich Steeves, TMCnet Web Editor
These days, so many companies are looking to flatten, consolidate and extend their networks, usually by leveraging IP communications systems like those provided by Cisco (News - Alert). One important consideration to bear in mind, however, during these deployments, is having an effective enhanced 911 (E911) solution that works in tandem with these telecommunications deployments, meeting the latest challenges head on. One provider of E911 hosted solutions, 911 ETC (News - Alert) (News - Alert), firmly believes that, in this case, keeping it simple is the best way to go.
In fact, 911 ETC’s E911 hosted solutions are currently being utilized by several Fortune 500 companies. One such company was looking to flatten, consolidate and extend its network using Cisco’s Emergency Responder for discovery of their IP phones. This financial institution, which has more than 1300 sites located across multiple states, needed to deal with multiple dial-tone providers and several PS/ALI agreements in order to fully implement E911. In order to do so, it turned to 911 ETC.
The company opted to go with 911 ETC’s hosted and fully managed VoIPConnect service, which includes assistance with initial implementation as well as ongoing monthly maintenance. With this solution, the company was not only able to save tens of thousands of dollars, but it eliminated the hassle of dealing with multiple PS/ALI agreements and shortened the implementation time down to one week. 911 calls from a branch office are now sent to 911 ETC’s voice positioning server and routed to the appropriate 911 call center with full location information.
Companies that are interested in learning more about the E911 hosted solutions provided by 911 ETC can attend a free webinar entitled “E911 for Cisco: How to Keep It Simple.” The event will take place on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 at 4:00 PM EDT. During the 45 webinar, Michael Anderson (News - Alert), national sales director at 911 ETC, will explain the options for Cisco organizations, presenting client case studies as examples and taking questions from attendees.
