Stratus White Paper: What You Need to Know About
Migrating to Next Generation 9-1-1 Technology
As mobile phone use skyrockets and texting becomes a preferred mode of communication, the 9-1-1 system needs to evolve to catch up. That's what Next Generation 9-1-1 technology is all about: updating the 9-1-1 infrastructure to allow today's mobile citizens to easily report emergencies by texting messages, photos, and/or videos to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs). This capability will be instrumental in increasing public safety and in helping law enforcement, firefighters, EMTs, and other first responders get better information about situations in the field for increased preparedness, more efficient response, and better outcomes.
The Stratus white paper, What You Need to Know About Migrating to Next Generation 9-1-1 Technology, will help you understand what's involved in upgrading your Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) to NG9-1-1. It provides valuable insights into:
- What the NG9-1-1 initiative is all about, what's driving it, and why it's critical for ensuring public safety moving forward
- Technology, funding, liability, and public education factors to consider before migrating to NG9-1-1
- How to protect your NG9-1-1 system against unplanned downtime that can put public safety at risk
