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.”
