App for Demos at NENA Conference

A new FREE APP for the Android platform is being made available to accompany Next Generation 9-1-1 Secure Text and Video calling demonstrations that are being given at the National Emergency Number Association (NENA®) Conference in Long Beach California between June 9th and 14th 2012.
The Assure911.net and Acme Packet product teams are working together to highlight an important advancement in emergency communications made possible by NENA’s development of a set of standards for Next Generation 9-1-1.

The demonstrations will exhibit the ability to not only route text messages to the appropriate 9-1-1 call taker based on the caller’s geographic location, but also the ability of one of the NG9-1-1 functional elements (FEs), the Border Control Function (BCF), to monitor for important recurring themes in the body of the messages and alert the proper authorities. The cases of a campus bomb scare and a tornado sighting are to be demonstrated. The SMS messages are to be exchanged between an app on an Adroid-based smart-phone and an NG9-1-1 call taker. The position of the originator is obtained using the embedded GPS capability of their device. The BCF logs the event to the Assure911® Network Monitoring platform which in turn alerts a set of mobile devices in the audience, representing the smart-phones of NG9-1-1 system managers.
