Problem: 9-1-1 Calls Routed to Wrong Location
New FCC Legislation has been adopted that impacts your company’s communication systems. If you are migrating to a new system, such as Cisco Webex Calling, now is the time to implement an E911 solution that will not only keep your company compliant with current laws, but future-proof your company against ANY upcoming E911

When our current customers came to us, they were concerned that starting an E911 project would be too much. Too costly. Too time consuming. Too demanding. We listened to them, and we agreed.
The FCC adopted a Report and Order on August 1, 2019. These regulations, which provide rules for Kari’s Law and Ray Baum’s Act, may be more stringent than your current state E911 legislation. However, if your state’s regulations are in fact more stringent than federal legislation, the state law then takes precedence. In essence, always aim to comply with the more stringent regulations.
As a company that focuses solely on E911, we have come across many misconceptions about what E911 is and how it can benefit your enterprise. Many believe, true to name, that it is a simple “enhancement” to your already existing 9-1-1 functionality. However, what most don’t realize is that basic 9-1-1 functionality in many enterprise spaces is severely limited, and sometimes completely absent.

Many tech companies will have you believe that if you haven’t migrated to a fully cloud-based environment, then you are behind the times. While cloud-based communications will eventually take precedence, for most the road to get there isn’t so direct.
Jumping right into a cloud-based communication system can be complicated by cost, as well as the size and complexity of your unique enterprise. Opting instead for a hybrid deployment can be an attractive option for enterprises that are not yet ready to fully migrate to the cloud.
