E9-1-1 Solutions for CDMA Carriers

Americans report that Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) is the most important location application to have on their wireless phone. However, wireless carriers attempting to navigate the technical and regulatory gauntlet of implementing wireless E9-1-1 service frequently encounter cost overruns, technical, and integration problems and deployment delays.

How Wireless E9-1-1 Works

The Comtech Telecommunications Wireless E9-1-1 solution enables wireless carriers to meet Phase I and II of the FCC mandate while providing the life-saving emergency services and security that wireless consumers expect. Utilizing the unique architecture of the Xypoint Location Platform and existing networks, Comtech Telecommunications enables wireless carriers to handle wireless E9-1-1 calls by delivering the 10-digit callback number and originating location information to the appropriate PSAPs. Where Phase II 9-1-1 has been deployed, Comtech Telecommunications integrates with your selected location vendor to provide callers’ location coordinates to the PSAP.

This information allows public safety personnel to immediately dispatch the appropriate emergency services to the caller’s location and quickly call them back if disconnected for any reason.
