CHICAGO, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSky Technologies, Inc., the leader in E911 solutions today announced that its E911 Manager® with WiFi E911™ has successfully completed interoperability verification testing* with Cisco's Wi-Fi infrastructure.
Organizations with mobile workers using Wi-Fi enabled phones on Cisco wireless networks can now be protected with accurate, real-time, E911 protection. E911 Manager® with WiFi E911™ is the premier E911 solution to integrate seamlessly with leading Wi-Fi networks from Cisco to provide life-saving E911 capability.
"Seconds count in an emergency and the certified compatibility between E911 Manager® with WiFi E911™ and Cisco Mobility Service Engine (MSE) ensures that the real-time location information of a Wi-Fi phone user in need is accurately routed along with the 9-1-1 call to emergency call takers who can send help," said Youngwook Song, Director of Product Management, RedSky. "Extending reliable, automated E911 protection to Wi-Fi users on enterprise networks helps organizations comply with the law in many states and removes a barrier to Wi-Fi implementation."
The E911 Manager® with WiFi E911™ software module runs on RedSky's E911 Manager® platform that provides comprehensive location management, notification, reporting, and 9-1-1 call routing for enterprises, higher education, large school districts and government agencies. E911 Manager® is installed on a server in the enterprise or is available as a service via RedSky's managed private cloud. In either instance, E911 Manager® and WiFi E911™ communicate seamlessly with Cisco MSE to monitor real-time phone movement from one access point to another. If a Wi-Fi enabled phone dials 9-1-1, the emergency dispatcher receives the phone call and the caller's location based on the access point being used at the time of the call.
