Partnership Brings Mobile User Location Information In Line With FCC Requirements

Polaris Wireless : 22 June, 2010  (Company News)
Polaris Wireless is joining Globecomm to enable US wireless communication service operators to have mobile-device user location services that meet Federal Communications Commission E911 Phase II requirements
Polaris Wireless and Globecomm Systems have announced a partnership designed to enable US wireless operators to more quickly, easily and cost-effectively meet Federal Communications Commission (FCC) E911 Phase II requirements. As part of its menu of offerings, Globecomm is introducing a managed E911 Phase II service that makes use of Polaris's proven E911 Phase II software solution for rapidly locating mobile-device users.

"We are committed to bringing robust and assured capabilities to our customers, and the Polaris location solution is the ideal enabler for our managed E911 Phase II service," said Andrew Silberstein, Vice President and General Manager of Globecomm Network Services. "Polaris differentiates our offering with superior performance and cost advantages that are equally available to our wireless-operator customers across the spectrum of network evolution."

Globecomm delivers turnkey total telecommunications solutions providing professional engineering services, managed network services and full lifecycle support to a variety of customers, including wireless operators. Globecomm will manage the E911 Phase II service from its network operations center in Hauppauge. Polaris software will enable Globecomm GSM and CDMA hosted services customers to meet FCC Phase II requirements for providing real-time, highly precise location data to emergency responders when mobile-device users dial "911."

The Polaris solution requires no deployment of additional hardware by Globecomm or its customers; nor do the wireless operators have to make changes to their subscribers' handsets. The Globecomm managed E911 Phase II service will deliver complete network coverage and 100-percent service availability for its customers across their subscriber bases, as well as across 2G and 3G networks.

"This is an entirely new and critical distribution model for Polaris, as the partnership will expand our footprint to a much broader set of wireless operators who seek the simplicity and sustainable cost efficiency of Globecomm's value-added managed services," said Bhavin Shah, Director of Marketing and Business Development, Polaris Wireless. "We have a proven, high-accuracy location solution that 21 carriers and multiple law-enforcement agencies rely on around the world, but this partnership with Globecomm establishes the first managed E911 Phase II service based on Polaris technology."
