WHAT: While most people know to call 9-1-1 in an emergency situation

not everyone is aware of the limitations of the system given the

expanding variety of wireless devices used and the variations in

service by location. The telecommunications industry plays a

unique role in transmitting emergency calls and helping public

safety officials locate people needing help. In today's

ever-changing communications landscape, telecommunications

providers are responding to the need for increased network

resiliency by modernizing existing systems through Emergency

Stand Alone (ESA) systems.

Aztek Networks is witnessing unprecedented response by rural

telecommunications providers who are revitalizing their network

by implementing new ESA technologies.

As the demand for broadband services increases, with nearly

96 million subscribers by 2012, (source:

many telecommunications operators are enhancing services and

increasing reliability through what is referred to as, "switch

collapse." While increasing efficiencies are gained through this

process, the telephone network can be exposed to cuts which can

result in lack of access to emergency services.

Emergency Stand Alone systems guarantee uninterrupted local

calling capability and access to 9-1-1 emergency services. ESA

helps ensure public safety by continuously maintaining local

calling capabilities and subscriber access to emergency 9-1-1

services in the event the link to the primary host switch is

severed due to an accident or natural disaster. Not only is this

in the best interest of public safety, it also was mandated as

part of the Katrina Order, a regulation put into force after the

devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina back in 2006.

The importance of support for Emergency Services capabilities,

through the use of 9-1-1 cannot be overlooked or undervalued.

According to NENA (National Emergency Number Association), over

200 million 9-1-1 calls are made each year in the United States.

In order for these calls to be made, more than 8,000 Public

Safety Answering Points must be utilized spanning 3,100

counties. The ability to maintain 9-1-1 services through ESA

capabilities during natural disasters, severe weather, major

power outages, telecommunications cable cuts, and other such

events is vitally important.
