CHICAGO, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSky Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of on-premise and cloud-based E911 solutions, today announced its cloud-based E911 Anywhere® can now help organizations route 9-1-1 emergency calls to the proper public safety answering point (PSAP) anywhere in Canada as well as in the United States.
This latest enhancement benefits Canadian organizations as well as those with operations in both the U.S.A. and Canada. Many enterprises with cross-border operations consolidate calls into a datacenter located in one country. Now, these customers can send all 9-1-1 calls from their datacenter to E911 Anywhere® regardless of their point of origin. The cloud-based service will then route the emergency call to the proper PSAP based on the location of the caller.
"The expansion of our E911 Anywhere® service area is a direct response to our customers' efforts to consolidate their voice networks into the datacenter," says Nick Maier, senior vice president, RedSky. "E911 Anywhere® helps organizations reduce their communications costs by eliminating local gateways, dedicated 9-1-1 trunks and multiple PS-ALI contracts – even across borders."
With the service expansion, Canadian customers who sign up for the cloud-based E911 Anywhere® service also receive RedSky's suite of 9-1-1 call notifications that can be delivered via security desk "screen pop" alerts, SMS text or email to any person in the enterprise. Regardless of delivery channel, these alerts notify on-site responders and administration of a 9-1-1 call in progress and include the location of the caller in need.
RedSky is the leading provider of on-premise and cloud-based E911 solutions with more customers, more technology, and more experience than any other provider. More than a million workers, students, guests and visitors rely on RedSky for E911 protection. RedSky leverages legacy standards as well as the new National Emergency Number Association (NENA) i3 standards for Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) to help organizations provide effective 9-1-1 emergency response, comply with state E911 regulations and meet business requirements for safety, risk management and efficiency.
