U.S. Navy Deploys Nationwide 9-1-1 Services through AT&T (8/9/12)
AT&T was awarded a contract by the U.S. Navy to deploy a nationwide 9-1-1 routing and management service (9-1-1 RMS) call-routing and handling solution.
Under the contract, AT&T will work with the U.S. Navy’s emergency communications department to deploy the 9-1-1 RMS network to meet key emergency communications requirements, based on the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) i3 standard for next generation 9-1-1 networks. The highly secure service will route emergency calls from Naval facilities in the continental United States to one of six regional dispatch centers, where calls will be answered using state-of-the-art equipment and services.
The six regional dispatch centers can create perimeters around emergencies in each of the more than 90 bases. The system can re-route calls from one dispatch center to another in case of natural disaster or other catastrophic event.
