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
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.
