Vassar College to Enhance Real-Time Emergency Response with E911 Solution from Teo

Teo announces that Vassar College is the latest higher education institution to select its leading Enhanced 911 (E911) Emergency Response System. Vassar selected Teo's E911 system to improve its ability to identify the origin of 911 calls coming from its campus.

Many organizations have internal response teams that need to have precise situational information when a 911 call occurs. With conventional PBX technology, public E911 first responders often will not get location information that identifies a secondary building, floor or office the call came from -- only the street address of the primary business location.

Supporters Call to Cease State Government Raiding of 9-1-1 Funds

TeleCommunication Systems announces that it supports the efforts of the National Emergency Number Association to prohibit state legislatures from raiding critical 9-1-1 funding. The economic recession has devastated the revenues of many states, forcing legislatures to search for extra dollars in other areas of their budgets. Many states have found caches of money in 9-1-1 funds that have been accumulated by 9-1-1 authorities over the years to pay for equipment and service upgrades. The redirection of these funds could have disastrous consequences on the preparedness and future viability of many 9-1-1 authorities to upgrade their technologies as needed.

VoIP Providers Using E911 as Cost-Effective, Competitive Differentiator

E911 is commanding even greater attention in the VoIP market as Monday's FCC ruling became more stringent and reports of casualties related to VoIP E911 limitations are publicized. Not only could the liability of ignoring emerging 911 capabilities be disastrous for a VoIP company, sales could also suffer as consumers are beginning to seriously evaluate 911 functionality in their voice buying decisions. To be competitive, VoIP companies are getting in front of FCC compliance and consumer demand for public safety. Historically, 911 technology enhancement was cost-prohibitive for VoIP providers, but rising IP-based E911 companies are allowing them to compete both on technology innovation and price, due to a lower cost infrastructure.
