Vonics partners with Intrado to offer E911 Service
Subscribers offered Enhanced 911 dialing services to connect with local emergency operators. All 911 calls routed through the reliable nationwide networks of Vonics and Intrado.
San Francisco CA – January 19, 2006: Vonics Digital Inc., the premier broadband telephone services provider has signed a contract with Intrado Inc. (NASDAQ: TRDO), a global provider of integrated data and telecommunications solutions and leader in VoIP 9-1-1 solutions, to provide Enhanced 911 (E911) emergency dialing services to its subscribers. Vonics subscribers will soon be able to register their telephone numbers for the E911 service to be connected to a local 9-1-1 phone operator during an emergency.
“We care about the communication concerns of our subscribers and so have partnered with the most reliable company in the industry to offer such a vital service” said Babar Hamirani, CEO of Vonics Digital. “Our residential and business services subscribers will have access to the Enhanced 9-1-1 (E911) service that would connect them to an emergency operator when they dial 9-1-1 from their VoIP phones.”
With Intrado® V9-1-1® for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) providers, emergency calls are routed from the Vonics Digital Network to the geographically correct Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) for timely dispatch of emergency assistance.
Vonics offers a solution to their users that is consistent with the requirements of delivering E911 for VoIP. Last year, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) issued an order that mandated all interconnected VoIP service providers (VSPs) to offer E911 emergency dialing as a standard component of their service. The FCC Order took into consideration the expectations of growing VoIP consumers and the need to strengthen the community’s ability to access public safety in times of crisis.
“We are pleased that Vonics has chosen Intrado to deliver V9-1-1 Service to their subscribers,” said Dan Hoskins, Intrado Senior Vice President of Sales and Market Development. “With Intrado V9-1-1 Service, Vonics is better able to provide accurate caller location information when their subscribers make emergency calls.”
Vonics has consistently addressed issues faced by the growing VoIP community and has become one of the fastest growing Internet telephone services providers in the nation. With high-quality service and low-cost calling plans, that include unlimited domestic and international calling, Vonics is establishing a leading position in a growing and competitive industry. The new E911 feature from Vonics adds to the impressive list of services offered by the company.
