Vonage Hails Signing of the New and Emerging Technologies 911 Improvement Act of 2008

Logo 125x125Vonage applaudes President Bush's signing into law of the New and Emerging Technologies 911 Improvement Act of 2008. This new act grants long awaited rights and protection to VoIP service providers to interconnect to the traditional 911 network operated by incumbent telephone providers.

"Vonage is grateful to the President and Congress for making this legislation a reality. It will enable Vonage and other VoIP providers to better support first responders in times of emergency," said Jeffrey Citron, Chairman, Chief Strategist, and Interim CEO of Vonage. "While over 98% of our subscriber lines already have access to E911, enactment of this law provides additional tools and leadership for platform neutral, responder friendly safety communications."

Vonage's E911 solution enables a customer's call to be automatically routed to the appropriate 911 center, with the caller's registered street address and telephone number appearing on the dispatcher's screen.

<a href="http://www.911Enable.com">911 Enable</a> would also like to commend those who worked to bring the NET 911 Act into effect. It is especially pleasing to see the requirement for a plan to migrate to a national IP-enabled emergency network, particularly the specification that this plan address the challenge posed by nomadic devices and business multiline telephone systems. 911 Enable has long stressed the importance of accurately and precisely locating enterprise callers, whether they are calling from an on-site phone, from home, or from the road. As telecommuting and mobility-enabled IP communications technologies continue to grow in popularity, the need to implement adequate E911 services has become critical. 911 Enable hopes that the NET 911 Act will pave the way for much-needed – and potentially life-saving – changes to the nation’s emergency network.
