Effective January 1, 2020 all business and government locations in Michigan will be required to implement "Enhanced 911" service in their Multi Line Telephone Systems (MLTS). In addition, Kari's Law, a new federal mandate will take effect on February 16, 2020.
According to Mark Fletcher - ENP, Avaya's Chief Architect for Worldwide Public Safety Solutions: "Emergency Services capabilities in the Enterprise have drastically changed. What was not possible before, is now easily accomplished. As with all evolving technologies, more can be done for less, and that is exactly why the Avaya solution called SENTRY™ provides the efficiency of NG911 today."
Fletcher continued, "Employee safety is one of our major concerns for users of our communications solutions. Getting the right people, to the right place, with the right information is at the core of that mission. This is why SENTRY™ was designed to work not only with Avaya systems, but any system capable of making a call."
According to Bill Wilhelm of John Carroll University: "I chose to attend the E911 Enterprise Security Summit to learn about the pending laws, but found it to be much more than I expected as I learned about the capabilities of Next Generation 9-1-1 for my PBX. This is the best option I have explored to date!"
"The success of these sessions is incredible. The IT Staff is now taking NG9-1-1 seriously, with legislation compliance right around the corner. Our solution was designed to be simple, and affordable, but most of all, efficient and effective, after all, what is more important?", said Mark J. Fletcher, ENP and Chief Architect of Public Safety Solutions at Avaya. "The integration of SENTRY™ through 911 Secure, and the NG911 Additional Data feed from RapidSOS is yielding capabilities like never seen before. Watching our customer's reactions during the demonstrations is extremely exciting," he added.
In addition to the new Michigan state laws starting in January, Fletcher explains that "with Federal legislation mandated for February, 2020, Enterprise administrators need to put E911 on their radar. Ignoring the problem can expose the Enterprise to significant liabilities and penalties.
Avaya SENTRY™ is available from Altura Communication Solutions.
