Emergent Communications completes ICE 4 Interoperability Testing
Emergent Communications, Inc. recently completed interoperability testing at the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) 4th Industry Collaboration Event (ICE 4) held in Irving Texas. This was the largest event of its kind and featured some of the most complex test scenarios to date using Next Generation 9-1-1 components based on NENA 08-003, the core standard for NG9-1-1 services.
Emergent tested its Emergency Services Routing Proxy (ESRP), and its cloud based i3 PSAP offer consisting of PSAP director (PSAPd) and its new release of PSAP call taker (PSAPc). All of these elements are designed to be deployed within an ESInet as a managed software as a services (SaaS) offer.
"We are very excited and pleased to see such a large turnout and so many new companies participate in the event" said Mike Tedder, Emergent's co-founder. "It really shows we as an industry have turned the corner and moved away from the legacy technologies toward an open architecture, standards based solution that will bring many new services to the entire emergency communications community".
Emergent offers the first NENA i3 Next Generation Internet Protocol (IP) standards based Next Generation 9-1-1 emergency communications system. The Emergent product suite "IP enables" the Public Service Answering Point (PSAP) and provides location based routing components for the ESInet. Emergent's product suite is based on advanced research and development conducted at Columbia University and successfully tested in the US Department of Transportation's NG9-1-1 proof of concept.
