Oct 05, 2011

Version 6 Leverages Java/Linux to Protect Workers and Students Connected to Virtual Computing Environments, SIP and Unified Communications Networks

Chicago -- RedSky Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of automated E911 solutions, today announced the launch of E911 Manager® Version 6, the next generation of its enterprise-class E911 software that helps organizations capture, manage and deliver the detailed location information necessary to provide effective 9-1-1 emergency response. Version 6 has been re-engineered using Java and Linux to deliver unprecedented scalability, resiliency and capability to enterprise, government and education customers deploying virtual computing environments, SIP and Unified Communications networks.

E911 Manager® integrates with major call servers/PBXs to track phone location movement and monitor for 9-1-1 calls. E911 Manager® automatically updates phone locations in both regional ALI databases and its cloud-based E911 Anywhere® to deliver accurate location information to emergency responders.

“While the need to provide E911 protection to workers and students remains constant, communications technology continues to evolve at a dramatic pace,” says Nick Maier, senior vice president, RedSky. “That’s what drives RedSky to continually innovate and improve E911 Manager® so it remains the best-in-class choice for enterprise E911 software.”

E911 Manager® Version 6 runs in a virtual environment or on a dedicated server and is highly scalable and resilient. A single instance of Version 6 can support up to 50 call servers/PBXs and up to 100,000 endpoints. Add-on modules extend the application to deliver notifications of 9-1-1 calls in progress and provide location tracking for WiFi and softphones. E911 Manager® works seamlessly with all the major platform providers including Avaya, Cisco and Siemens and supports SIP endpoints and voice platforms. In Next-Generation 9-1-1 networks, Version 6 can be deployed as a Location Information Server (LIS) using the NENA i3 standard.
