"It's a new day in public safety communications, and with this new day comes challenges and opportunities," said Jeff Robertson, CEO of Airbus DS Communications. "Next Generation can seem daunting, but with the right solution provider, it doesn't have to be. The thousands of PSAPs we serve throughout North America, and any others looking for NG9-1-1 guidance, know the home of VESTA® has a solution. Our team looks forward to discussing the unique needs of 9-1-1 Authorities and helping them feel confident about this journey."

Airbus DS Communications returns to the NENA Conference & Expo this year as a platinum sponsor and will host its Innovation Theater on the Expo floor. Here, the company's team members and thought leaders will demonstrate powerful offerings for keeping Public Safety personnel connected and their communities safe. The line-up includes:

The Airbus team also will be offering NG9-1-1 landscape sessions, a Look into the Future, that examine the technology landscape for NG9-1-1 and how Airbus can address evolving communications requirements for 9-1-1 Authorities and ease their burden. These consultative sessions are available for PSAPs of any size who want to know more about the impact of NG9-1-1, including call routing, on their operations.

In addition, attendees can obtain other valuable NG9-1-1 information when they attend NENA breakout sessions led by Airbus personnel.
