CommPartners Deploys TCS' E9-1-1 VoIP Service

TeleCommunication Systems (TCS) has deployed VoIP E9-1-1 service for Las Vegas-based CommPartners, a VoIP facilitator providing IP telephony services and connectivity to service providers. The deployment is the latest in TCS' E9-1-1 services that have been deployed across the United States since 1998.

TCS said its solution meets the requirements and expectations of E9-1-1 services offered to traditional landline and wireless subscribers. It supports a wide range of VoIP solutions ranging from those offering a landline replacement to those providing the business traveler with VoIP connectivity from the road. Whereas location updates to the wireline databases typically take up to 48 hours to activate, TCS provides mechanisms to its customers that allow the information to be updated and validated in a fraction of the time. The updated location information is used to dynamically route the call to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point, of which there are over 6500 across the country. http://www.telecomsys.com
