Emergency line caller ID for wireless

RCC Consultants : 17 July, 2008  (New Product)
Tool developed to locate the position of callers to US emergency services number 911 when called from wireless location
RCC Consultants has introduced ComSite9∙1∙1e to benefit the Nation's 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Points by providing them the means to independently test and verify the accuracy of wireless 9-1-1 caller location information delivered to 9-1-1 centers by wireless service providers.

When the location information of a wireless 9-1-1 caller is not available or reported to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) inaccurately, the response of emergency services can be delayed with dire consequences.

RCC Consultants developed a wireless 9-1-1 location accuracy testing solution, called ComSite9∙1∙1e, specifically to help the Nation's PSAPs assess the accuracy of location information that is delivered to their PSAP by any wireless carrier. The testing methodology used by ComSite9∙1∙1e is based on nationally recognized standards published by the Federal Communications Commission. ComSite9∙1∙1e meets the needs of PSAPs that want to perform periodic checks on the location accuracy of wireless 9-1-1 calls.

"Using our experience in conducting the Nation's first wireless 9-1-1 location accuracy testing to provide municipalities with the ability to rapidly and accurately verify wireless 9-1-1 location data being delivered to their PSAP is part of RCC's ongoing commitment to the public safety community", said Dr. Joseph Nasser, Senior Vice President of RCC's Public Safety Information Systems Group. "Having a tool to verify the accuracy of wireless location data at the PSAP level is indispensable in helping emergency responders quickly locate wireless 9-1-1 callers in the community."

ComSite9∙1∙1e provides the ability to perform ad-hoc testing in defined target areas or across the entire service area, inside buildings, and over water. Testing can be performed for only one wireless service provider or for multiple wireless service providers. ComSite9∙1∙1e can also verify the accuracy of wireless calls made on Next Generation 9-1-1 systems. ComSite9∙1∙1e is fully upgradable to RCC's ComSite9∙1∙1 location accuracy testing system as local requirements change.

ComSite9∙1∙1e will be officially unveiled at the Associated Public Safety Communications Official - International 74th Annual Conference and Expo, August 3-7, 2008, in Kansas City, booth number 830.
