at How to Implement NG9-1-1


How long will it take to get to full Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1)? You ask 10 people, you will probably get 10 different answers. But our response, based on the hundreds of PSAPs we work with every day is that it will take time – likely 3 – 5 years.

That's why we’ve broken down what needs to happen to move to full NG9-1-1 into 9 logical, pragmatic steps. Here are the benefits.

Why 9 Steps to NG9-1-1 Makes Sense

The 9 Steps to NG 9-1-1 – Quick Outline

  • 10. CPE Migration – NG9-1-1 Ready
  • 11. Level 1 Data = Text-to-911, EIDD* (when finalized)
  • 12. Selective Router Replacement – Carrier Transition, Tabular Routing
  • 13. Enhanced Policy Routing Capabilities – Regional
  • 14. Inter-PSAP System Communications
  • 15. Level 2 Data, Medium bandwidth
  • 16. GIS Services
  • 17. Geospatial routing
  • 18. Level 3 Data

Think of the 9 Steps to NG9-1-1 as occurring over 3 years.

9 Steps to NG9-1-1

Right now the first 3 are the most important because they give you the tools to build the base you need to move forward.

What are those first 3 critical steps?

We believe having this information is so important that we created a three-part webinar series around the 9 Steps. We also created a checklist you can use to walk through where you are in the first 3 crucial steps to identify where you have gaps or where you need more information.

To request the Checklist for the first 3 steps or the recording to the first webinar that explains the steps in detail, email us at VESTAMarketing@airbus-dscomm.com and let us know if you want the checklist or the link or both.

As Jeff Gillan, the presenter of the 9 Steps to NG9-1-1 Webinars and who many of you know says – "I want PSAPs once they know about the 9 Steps to NG9-1-1 feel they are more in control of the steps they need to take to move from a legacy E9-1-1 system to NG9-1-1 in a timeframe that works for their center and budget."
