E911 for VoIP and UC Systems
New Enhanced 911 (E911) legislation, including Kari’s Law and RAY BAUM’S Act, ensures that anyone, anywhere can reach emergency services and critical location data is provided with that call.
The E911 legislation went into effect in early 2020 and the requirements include:
- Direct access to 911 without dialing 9 or other codes to get a dial tone
- Routing to 911 PSAP (public safety answer point) with no interception
- Notification to on-site security or reception desk personnel detailing who dialed 911
- Detailed caller location data automatically provided to 911 dispatchers
Office workers, remote workers and hotel guests are at risk if an IP phone dials 911 and emergency responders do not know the exact area the call originated. With E911 solutions, you can create detailed location records for every phone in your organization. When you call 911, responders know exactly where you are.
Penalties for Non-Compliance
In addition to facing potentially devastating civil liabilities should a tragedy occur, businesses that fail to comply with the law risk fines and may be subject to additional penalties for each day they remain non-compliant.
Maintaining compliance with these regulatory changes means assessing your existing communication systems to determine if updates are necessary to support these life-saving enhancements for your employees, guests, and visitors.
