Airbus DS Communications Introduces VESTA NEXT, the Straightforward Way to Next Generation 9-1-1
Airbus DS Communications, an entity of Airbus Defense and Space, has brought together the equipment, software and support services Public Safety agencies at the local, regional and state levels need to transition to Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1). Called VESTA™ NEXT, the portfolio provides these entities the critical components and the guidance for a clear way to NG9-1-1.
"For more than 40 years, Airbus DS Communications has designed with an open mind to deliver reliable and innovative public safety communications technologies," said Bob Freinberg, CEO of Airbus DS Communications. "With VESTA NEXT we’re making the transition to Next Generation 9-1-1 clearer and easier than ever before.”
VESTA NEXT is comprised of four crucial components: IP Call Handling through VESTA® 9-1-1 and VESTA® SMS; Call Routing with VESTA™ Router and Next Generation Core Services; ESInet design and creation; and GIS Services. Airbus DS Communications has achieved Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) status in multiple states, thereby providing PSAPs in-region or in-state networks.
From establishing a PSAP's network to State-wide NG9-1-1 call routing and GIS solutions, Airbus DS Communications can provide agencies with all or any one of these solutions, and the expertise to make it happen. “Our team provides the right combination of call handling, integrated texting, call routing, ESInet deployment and GIS services under one roof. We are meeting the specific operational need and assets of customer agencies,” says Freinberg.
As part of VESTA NEXT, agencies can count on Airbus DS Communications’ landmark VESTA™ Services, which includes engineering, furnishing, installation,maintenance and communications support to help implement and maintain the new system with ease.
“Migrating to Next Generation 9-1-1 is no small feat. Many questions are still unanswered and it requires agencies at the local, regional and state levels to work with multiple vendors, partners, contractors and advisors. Not only is that more work and more complex, but it creates the potential for miscommunication, delays and system incompatibilities,” added Freinberg. “VESTA NEXT eliminates that, putting the critical components, long-standing expertise and the communications agencies will need with one trusted source. In turn, we believe VESTA NEXT will help agencies continue to focus on what matters most, protecting their community.”
