Free Webinar on Interoperability in an NG9-1-1 World

Posted: Aug 22 – 05:19 pm

Planning is the key first step in implementing an NG9-1-1(?) solution and realizing the improvements that it will bring. Solution planning considerations must include the selection and deployment of a fully NENA compliant Emergency Services IP network (ESInet) and a NENA i3 compliant NG9-1-1 functional and interface architecture (a multimedia capable “call” processing platform), as well as identifying operational changes that are needed for the PSAP to take advantage of the NG9-1-1 data and environment.

Attend this free, one hour webinar presented by Cassidian Communications on Wednesday, September 14 at 1PM Eastern to hear:

  • What is important to understand about multimedia enablement in an NG9-1-1 world;
  • What you can do to ensure your PSAP is NG9-1-1 ready; and
  • How NG9-1-1 implementations will progress now that the NENA i3 standard is approved

Register today, for free!
