Redundancy and Diverse Backup for Public Safety Answer Points
Resilient911 (R911) ensures the survivability of critical voice communications at Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) and Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) when telecom networks are compromised.
- Communications Control – Our solution puts your Center in control to deliver inbound and outbound telecommunications through existing Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) and/or alternate locations or Mobile Command Units.
- Diversity of Communications – R911 combines satellite, broadband, and cloud-based technologies into a fault-tolerant solution that complements expands, and enhances your Emergency Operations Plan.
- Continuity of Operations – keeping you connected when you need it most, during disasters, outages, or system failures – makes the public you serve safer.
Next Gen E911
When an outage occurs, Resilient911 applies multiple restorative strategies depending on the level and type of incident. These strategies all meet or support meeting aspects of the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) Service Capability Criteria Rating Scale as published by National Emergency Number Association (NENA) / Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO). See below.

CSRIC Best Practice 12-9-3238
Network Operators, Service Providers, and Public Safety should consider using wireless public or private networks as a backup to dedicated trunks for the 9-1-1 network during periods of network failure. In cases where the ability to deliver 9-1-1 calls to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) through normal routing is interrupted by a failure (not all trunks busy conditions) consider forwarding the call over wireless public, private networks, or satellite-based services to provide an additional alternate path to the PSTN, providing IP multimedia connectivity for next-generation networks, or used solely as an alternate call delivery path for the voice component of 9-1-1 calls.
