E911 Manager® is the first E911 solution to offer full location tracking and real-time location updates for Avaya SIP phones running on the Aura Session Manager platform.

"More and more enterprises are adopting SIP for its overwhelming unified communication advantages including mobility and network cost savings and now they can also move forward confidently knowing their users have full E911 protection."
In addition to providing real-time location tracking and 9-1-1 call routing for Aura SIP phones, E911 Manager® features automatic, real-time, IP phone tracking for all enterprise phones including softphones and WiFi phones, on-site notification of 9-1-1 calls and automatic location updates to PS-ALI databases and to RedSky's E911 Anywhere® national 9-1-1 call routing service.
"We wanted to be able to increase the granularity of our SIP handset location information for emergency dialing," said Steve Durney, solution director for Avaya Aura® Session Manager. "RedSky had the product, the technology and the technical team that were able to quickly deliver to Avaya a standards-based interface that allowed us to complete a successful technology collaboration and bring this important feature to ASM 6.1."
