911 Enable completes interoperability testing with Acme Packet


911 Enable, a provider of E911 solutions for IP
telephony, announced that its Emergency Routing Service (ERS) has completed
interoperability testing with Acme Packet’s Net-Net session border controllers
(SBCs).


This testing provides organizations with confidence that
their critical 911 data will reach the ERS, without compromising the safety and
integrity of their network.


The ERS is a monthly subscription service that delivers
911 calls and location information to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs)
across the US and Canada, helping organizations of all types and sizes meet
their state and local E911 regulations in a simple and cost-effective manner.


It provides access to the largest E911 coverage area in
the industry, ensuring seamless E911 support for the entire workforce,
including remote locations and users. The ERS also enables organizations to
define their locations to the building, floor, and room levels, thereby helping
them meet the strictest of E911 regulations.


Acme Packet’s SBCs interoperate with the ERS to ensure
organizations can implement the E911 support they need. The SBCs prioritize
SIP-originated 911 calls above all other SIP sessions, securely routing precise
caller location information to the ERS for delivery to the PSAP.


The Net-Net SBCs also provide failover and redundancy
capabilities necessary for a resilient and reliable E911 call routing solution.
To ensure the availability and performance of enterprise IP communications
infrastructure such as IP PBXs and unified communications (UC) servers, Net-Net
SBCs also prevent denials of service that could impact an organization’s
ability to communicate with emergency service personnel or other outside
agencies.


“Completing interoperability testing with Acme
Packet ensures that organizations using Net-Net SBCs have access to the full
range of ERS E911 call routing capabilities,” said Lev Deich, director of
911 Enable
.


“Secure prioritized access to emergency services is
a critical requirement for all types of organizations,” said Mark Vella,
Acme Packet’s vice president of business development.


“The combined functionality of our SBCs and 911
Enable’s ERS helps organizations meet regulatory requirements as well as the
security, interoperability and reliability needed for all modes of interactive
IP communications,” Vella added.
