TeleCommunication Systems signs contract extension With wireless carrier to offer E9-1-1 services



TeleCommunication Systems, a provider of mobile communication technology,
announced that the company has extended the contract with a Tier One U.S.
wireless carrier to provide wireless E9-1-1 services through August 2016.


TCS will continue supporting the carrier’s emergency service needs to
ensure that their wireless customers’ distress calls are routed to the
appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) together with the caller’s
precise location information.


“The challenges and requirements necessary for wireless operators
to stay on top of the new technologies and mandates for emergency services can
be daunting. We take pride in providing our customers with a fully hosted
solution that not only offers their users the safety and security they expect,
but does so in an affordable and easy-to-implement package,” said Chris
Nabinger, senior vice president of safety and security for TCS.


TCS enables completion of about half of all U.S. wireless E9-1-1 calls.
TCS’ wireless and VoIP E9-1-1 services, together with the company’s Next
Generation 9-1-1 solutions, serve over 150 million wireless and IP-enabled


As PSAPs continue to evolve and incorporate cutting-edge technology for
displaying caller locations, it is critical that carriers have access to the
necessary services and support to ensure effective wireless E9-1-1 services.
This contract extension allows the carrier to continue to focus on high-value
wireless services to its millions of subscribers while TCS maintains the
required wireless E9-1-1 emergency services.


TCS has been a pioneer in
developing technology to enhance public safety. The company is at the forefront
of providing standards-based solutions that are highly reliable and easily
outsourced to both telecommunications carriers and public safety agencies.


With the nation’s only non-carrier TL 9000-certified wireless and VoIP
E9-1-1 Network Operations Center (NOC), TCS’ highly-reliable E9-1-1 solutions
ensure that a subscriber’s emergency call is routed to the appropriate PSAP,
and the caller’s precise location information is delivered rapidly.


TeleCommunication Systems recently announced that it has been awarded a contract with an estimated value of $11
million over five years to provide managed network services, including
integrated satellite, terrestrial wireless, landline data and voice services,
networking equipment, IT support and network management in support of U.S.
government operations in select forward operating areas.
