RedSky's E911 Solutions Meet Latest NG9-1-1 Standards
The fourth National Emergency Number Association Industry Collaboration Event held in Irving, TX focused on developments from the E911 arena allowing vendors to test product interoperability, and RedSky was sure to take full advantage of this opportunity. As a strong presence in the world of E911 technology, RedSky provides a solution dubbed RedSky Horizon Legacy Network Gateway, and completed Next-Generation 9-1-1 interoperability tests with it at the NENA event.
RedSky’s Horizon LNG provides the on-ramp to NG9-1-1 networks for legacy 9-1-1 calls made on a PSTN, according to the company. As part of RedSky’s end-to-end NG9-1-1 solution for public organizations, the Horizon LNG accepts emergency calls over SS7 or CAMA trunks and translates the calls into SIP-based signals. The signals are then routed over an NG9-1-1 network reaching the necessary PSAP.
Jerry Eisner, ENP, group director for Public Safety at RedSky recently commented on the company’s NENA involvement, "RedSky continues to be actively involved with the NENA i3 standards development process and these Industry Collaborative Events are designed to ensure that NG9-1-1 network components such as our RedSky Horizon Legacy Network Gateway meet the requirements of our country’s emergency communications networks. RedSky is committed to working with NENA and the rest of the industry on vendor system interoperability and bringing these new NG9-1-1 standards to the market."
