Public Safety Services – a technology consideration that businesses need to evaluate in the short term. There is growing momentum behind state legislation to regulate 9-1-1 service as it applies to businesses, basic guidelines concerning access to 9-1-1 and dialing prefixes to specific requirements regarding notifications and detailed location delivery to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP).
To end users like customers and employees dialing 9-1-1 is second nature and “just works”. However, the technology behind the service can be more complex and can route in different ways depending on what system a company uses over what technology delivery model (traditional PBX versus VoIP, etc.). Businesses want to protect the individuals in their ecosystem, but many are not sure what information is readily available when 9-1-1 is dialed, especially in the cases of remote offices / mobile devices. Also, how does the call interact with emergency response personnel and security? Are these teams even in the loop when a distress signal is sent?
