Finding a New Route With Wireless Caller Geolocation
9-1-1 calls from wireless phones get delivered to PSAPs based on the association with the cell site sector and verified using traffic plans. This can be a challenge for 9-1-1, especially where the paths and systems have been in place for nearly 50 years. However, because 80% of all 9-1-1 calls nationally are now coming from wireless phones, 9-1-1 must look at ways that proper selection of a PSAP by a location can occur. This session will discuss how these wireless calls can be routed more accurately using modern smartphone location services on an NG9-1-1 network by leveraging data from the NG911 Clearinghouse and the GIS-based Emergency Call Routing Function (ECRF).
