Helping Reduce the Impact of False Calls in 9-1-1 Centers is a Breeze with Intelligent Automation from Avaya

The Growth of the Internet of Things, Expected to Exceed 20 Billion Devices by 2020, Could Lead to an Exponential Increase in False Alarms and Events in 9-1-1 Communications Centers

The Internet of Things and the mushrooming world of IoT devices, including the latest generation of smartphones and smart watches, is revolutionizing the way we communicate and connect to people and machines. But they are also the source of a growing list of 9-1-1 false events that can block the emergency service network.

To address this growing threat to the 9-1-1 system, Avaya has introduced to the US public safety market new capabilities for its market leading Avaya Breeze workflow automation technology. Using Avaya Breeze, public safety officials and carriers can implement new functionality developed and deployed with and by public safety officials in the European Union, such as Snap-In applications specifically designed for public safety officials and agents, to agencies across the US.  Avaya, using Breeze, can now help agencies develop specific solutions that can assist in identifying undesirable patterns of calls and events and provide real-time, automated remediation actions and advice that will help minimize the risk that live emergency calls could be blocked or delayed by false calls.  

Breeze technology enables public safety officials and carriers to develop solutions that help identify undesirable call patterns and deflect suspect traffic away from live operators for further analysis, freeing up those resources for calls that are actual emergencies.  The next generation Breeze technology platform accomplishes this by simplifying application development while delivering built-in capabilities for enhanced mobile, citizen-facing and hybrid/cloud requirements. Components of the Breeze technology platform include:

  • An open framework that brings the necessary attributes for communication in the digital age: embedded, multi-platform, mobile, fast, low risk, and workflow enabled – all key requirements that assist in automating previously manual processes.
  • A development platform for the rapid creation of new workflow-based applications within a matter of hours or days versus months.
  • A software delivery mechanism – the Avaya Snapp Store – that  allows a single integrated experience via browsers and native smart apps for entirely new citizen experiences.
  • Open connectors/APIs that enable simple, integration with existing agency communications services and protected access to the billions of devices in the Internet of Things.
