The shift to hybrid work, cloud-based communications, and mobile-first devices continues to create challenges for 911 call location and routing management. No matter where employees, contractors, and even on-site customers are located, the statutory requirements to ensure 911 reachability, accurate location management, and notification remain. NG911 offers the opportunity to improve 911 call management but few have implemented it to date. Those responsible for 911 administration often struggle with determining compliance, and with establishing a business case for NG911 investment. During this session industry experts will provide a reality check on NG911 to include what it can do today, and what it will be able to do in the future.
