9-1-1 is Changing, Are You Ready?

9-1-1 is already complicated, and now it's changing.
Why you need to pay attention.

Understanding the new 9-1-1 technology and regulations that could affect your business

With the continued introduction of new communications technology, the way people communicate and the devices they use continues to evolve. Landline phones are becoming increasingly rare, yet devices like Amazon Echo and Google Home are increasing in popularity. Enterprise users are moving to cloud-based communication platforms that are designed for a mobile workforce across campus environments.

All of this changing technology creates a new challenge in calling 9-1-1. New technology continues to add complexity to how, where, and when emergency phone calls are placed, yet the user experience remains the same…simply dialing 9-1-1.
