E911 as a Service: The Game Has Changed (July 2013)
As enterprise networks converge utilizing IP-based platforms, a cloud-based approach to E911 has significant cost advantages over traditional PS-ALI E911.

This consolidated approach not only eliminates the cost of local 9-1-1 call trunking, but also the time and expense of setting up PS-ALI contracts with Local Exchange Carriers.
