Collaboration With 911 Enable Ensures Emergency Personnel Can Accurately and Quickly Pinpoint Location of Roaming Users Calling From an IP Device
SAN MATEO, CA–(Marketwire – Sep 13, 2012) – IntelePeer, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand, cloud-based communications, today announced it is teaming with 911 Enable, an industry expert in E911 for IP telephony, to expand its E911 services with Nomadic 911 emergency location information capabilities for Microsoft Lync customers who use IntelePeer’s CoreCloud SIP Trunking.
With the growing adoption of Unified Communications (UC), many people now rely on laptop PCs and other untethered computing devices as their primary phones. The service provided by IntelePeer and 911 Enable is ideal for organizations housed in corporate campuses or other facilities where Microsoft Lync users often take their devices with them. When the user places an emergency call, the companies’ technologies work together to seamlessly and automatically provide the caller’s location information to the 911 operator at the geographically appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), ensuring that emergency personnel can quickly and accurately respond.
“With the proliferation of Unified Communications across corporate campuses, it’s important to ensure that seamless E911 support is available regardless of the user’s device,” said Lev Deich, director, 911 Enable. “Our E911 offerings help organizations to comply with state and federal regulations and are qualified by Microsoft, giving customers who use Microsoft Lync with IntelePeer SIP Trunking a proven, high-quality solution that delivers peace of mind.”
IntelePeer provides turnkey SIP trunking solutions for enterprises adopting Microsoft Lync and qualifies under the Microsoft Unified Communications Open Interoperability Program (UCOIP). IntelePeer’s easy-to-deploy, high-quality, cost-effective services help deliver a connection to any Lync deployment as well as to any PSTN communications device reached through its CloudWorx platform.
“IntelePeer SIP Trunking with Microsoft Lync provides customers with high-quality, reliable connections that allow them to take full advantage of the benefits of Unified Communications,” said Margaret Norton, general manager, Enterprises, for IntelePeer. “By teaming with 911 Enable, we boost that value by expanding our E911 services with best-in-class Nomadic 911 capabilities to help our customers operate a safe workplace.”
