Next-Generation 9-1-1 will improve PSAP capabilities

Learn how upgrading to IP-based systems with NG9-1-1 will help emergency dispatch centers receive and act on digital information.


Navigating the Journey to NG9-1-1 Services

When responding to an emergency situation, it is essential to have all the information needed to ensure the safety of citizens and first responders. Many 9-1-1 systems in place today are based on legacy infrastructure that limits a PSAP’s situational understanding. Next generation, IP-enabled technology allows PSAPs to access more accurate and detailed information, giving them access to texts, pictures and videos so they can dispatch the correct services for each situation.

The journey to NG9-1-1 can be technically challenging, but CenturyLink has partnered with industry leading public safety software companies like Comtech and West to simplify the delivery of NG9-1-1 services. CenturyLink can help municipalities and public safety organizations take advantage of the latest IP-based technologies to control infrastructure costs, reduce response times, provide real-time situational data and improve inter-agency communications and collaboration.

CenturyLink can help public safety organizations:
  • Ensure the safety of your community’s citizens and agency’s first responders
  • Provide your first responders with information they need to deliver the right response and aid during emergency situations
