TeleCommunication Systems Expands Public Safety Portfolio with Intrepid9-1-1 Next Generation Core Services Solution

July 10, 2015  | 

TeleCommunication Systems (TCS), known for its secure and highly reliable wireless communication technology, has introduced Intrepid9-1-1, a suite of Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) Core Services (NG Core Services). This geo-diverse, resilient, and modular emergency communications solution validates and geospatially routes 9-1-1 voice calls, SMS text, and multimedia messages to public safety answering points (PSAPs) and emergency responders. The scalable solution can be implemented at state, regional, or local levels.

According to the company, Intrepid9-1-1 merges the best advanced features and functions of two proven, NG9-1-1 solutions – TCS Gemini and microDATA xSR. It Intrepid9-1-1 is comprised of a comprehensive set of NG Core Services that can be implemented as an entire suite or as functional modular elements that integrate with legacy or multi-vendor NG9-1-1 components. It operates on an Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet) as a platform for connecting originating service providers with PSAPs, and interconnecting PSAPs in a variety of configurations.

This flexible, NENA i3-compliant solution is offered via multiple deployment models, including:

  • Intrepid9-1-1 Software-as-a-Service [SaaS] – NG Core Services are operated on equipment owned and maintained by TCS at its geo-diverse data centers, allowing for a speedy deployment and lower capital expenditure.
  • Intrepid9-1-1 Managed Service –NG Core Services are operated on equipment owned and maintained by the customer, allowing for lower operational expenditure.

Interoperable with existing and emerging systems, Intrepid9-1-1 features Geographical Information Systems (GIS)-based routing via Location to Service Translation (LoST) protocol. In situations where GIS is not in place, the flexible solution easily operates within a Master Street Address Guide (MSAG)-based routing system. Intrepid9-1-1 is also compliant with the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions' (ATIS) Emergency Services Interconnection Forum (ESIF) standards as well as NENA i3 standards.

TCS Safety and Security Group Senior Vice President Lynne Seitz said, "Intrepid9-1-1 underscores TCS' continued leadership position in developing innovative public safety solutions. Intrepid9-1-1 combines two proven, tenured solutions – TCS Gemini and microDATA xSR – into a single, carrier-grade platform. Its flexibility to work with legacy and emerging technologies, like geospatial routing, makes Intrepid9-1-1 a powerful, cost-effective PSAP solution. Our product was engineered for smooth, easy, user transition, and we believe that its modular design will benefit a wide range of jurisdictions seeking a phased approach to implementing a NextGen 9-1-1 system."

Since deploying the first U.S. wireless E9-1-1 solution in 1998, TCS has provided public safety solutions for wireless Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1), NG9-1-1 and E1-1-2. TCS supports about half of all U.S. wireless E9-1-1 calls, serving more than 140 million wireless and IP-enabled devices. TCS achieved its 11th consecutive year of TL 9000 certification in November 2014 and is the only non-carrier TL 9000-certified organization that supports E9-1-1 services, according to the company. Its E9-1-1 and NG9-1-1 solutions ensure that a subscriber's emergency call routes to the appropriate PSAP and automatically pinpoints the caller's location information.
