NEW YORK, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSky Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of automated E911 solutions to the enterprise, announced today the launch of E911 Anywhere(TM), a new service that centralizes location tracking and 911 call routing for enterprises deploying IP telephony. E911 Anywhere tracks the location of IP telephones both inside and outside the enterprise and routes 911 calls to the correct local Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) anywhere in the United States and Canada without the use of expensive local 911 trunks. The announcement was made at Interop New York 2007. E911 Anywhere works with RedSky's award-winning E911 Manager enterprise application, which handles the location tracking of all enterprise phones and supplies location records in real time to E911 Anywhere. E911 Anywhere then validates and stores this location information. When a 911 call is placed, the enterprise call server sends the call to the E911 Anywhere service which retrieves the location of the caller and routes the call to the PSAP responsible for the caller. "E911 Anywhere is the perfect emergency calling solution for large, distributed enterprises that have made a commitment to IP telephony," says Nicholas Maier, RedSky's Senior Vice President. "E911 Anywhere ensures that 911 callers get the help they need quickly while also offering large enterprises a way to save tens of thousands of dollars per month through the elimination of costly local 911 trunks." Instead, E911 Anywhere uses the enterprise WAN to deliver all 911 calls to RedSky's Tier 1 infrastructure and network provider partners. Any type of phone on the enterprise IP network can use the service including analog, digital, IP hardphones, softphones and SIP phones. E911 Anywhere also offers value-added options such as call recording and call bifurcation which are important to certain large enterprises that operate their own internal PSAPs. Pricing for the E911 Anywhere service, which is now available for delivery, is based on the number of phones using the service within an enterprise IP telephony network and is billed monthly.
