Next Generation 911 (NG911) has been the talk for more than 20 years in public safety. The transition is occurring across the Nation in various forms with varying results. These outcomes are dependent on multiple factors, but the one common element is everyone says they are “NG911 compliant”. NGA has led the way with a true SaaS NG911 solution that has delivered on the promise of end-to-end Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) call delivery. NGAs solution is a purpose-built solution conforming with published industry standards AND leverages the power of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. With our approach the NGA NEXiS platform delivers highly flexible and scalable solutions for customers across the Nation. Come hear how this true SaaS deployment will improve reliability, resilience and security for emergency response.

3 Key takeaways:

  • What are different “cloud” deployments and why does it matter?
  • What are some questions to ask as you explore claims of NG911 compliance?
  • How does SaaS improve reliability and resilience in a NG911 deployment?
