server, administrative costs

    CHICAGO, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSky Technologies, Inc., a leading
 developer of E911 and other location information management solutions,
 today announced that its award-winning E911 Manager is now certified for
 use with Cisco IP communications solutions.
     The certification means that organizations using Cisco solutions by
 themselves or in combination with communications solutions from other
 providers such as Avaya and Nortel now have the ability to use a single
 E911 Manager server to capture, manage and deliver the detailed location
 information required by public safety dispatchers for effective emergency
     "As organizations adopt IP telephony (IPT), many find themselves
 managing hybrid networks of traditional PBXs and IP-based call servers with
 a wide range of analog, digital and IP-based phones, softphones and other
 devices," said Nicholas Maier, senior vice president, RedSky. "With this
 Cisco certification, E911 Manager is now the only location information
 management solution available that works across all major platforms and
 devices, making it possible for organizations to reduce their server
 requirements and reduce the administrative time required to manage this
 information. This single- server approach provides consistent, reliable
 E911 protection to employees and visitors that complies with all state E911
 laws and is not dependent on where they are located or the type of phone
 they are using."
     In addition to E911 Manager's ability to automatically capture, manage
 and deliver location information for all types of phones through its
 automated interface, it automatically communicates with each local exchange
 carrier's ALI database provider so organizations with a national presence
 can easily administer ALI updates throughout the country without requiring
 additional resources. RedSky also partners with Intrado to provide national
 911 call routing and location identification service for softphones,
 distributed branch offices and VPN hardphones.
     "Mobility is becoming prevalent among IPT clients, and RedSky's ability
 to determine the precise location of an IPT endpoint and manage and deliver
 that location information is critical not only for E911, but for a wide
 range of emerging location-based services that these mobile clients will
 require," says Maier.
     RedSky is a Cisco Technology Developer Affiliate. E911 Manager is now
 available for Cisco Unified CallManager version 4.2(3) through leading
 Cisco Channel Partners and systems integrators. For more information on
