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.

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
