Public Safety

  • TCS Voice over LTE 9-1-1 (VoLTE9-1-1): An emergency communications service that enables 4G/LTE carriers to provide both 9-1-1 call routing and originating coarse/precise location information, including the 10-digit callback number, in an all-LTE environment to public safety access points (PSAPs), allowing them to potentially reclaim or reuse 3G spectrum.
  • Next Generation 9-1-1: An end-to-end, first fully standards-compliant NENA i3 NG 9-1-1 system that combines TCS’ ESINet and call handling solution with powerful GIS tool suites and related NG 9-1-1 system components and services for the interconnection of all telecommunications operators to both legacy public safety answering points (PSAPs) and evolving NG public safety jurisdictions.
  • GEM 9-1-1(TM): A web browser-based graphical user interface that PSAPs can utilize to manage multiple SMS 9-1-1 sessions. It allows for PSAPs who have IP connectivity to use a feature-rich, advanced, easy-to-deploy service to receive and respond to text messages from the public.
