  30. Why E-911? • Two phases • Government mandated • Developing infrastructure Team Platinum

  31. E-911 Fundamentals 1. The user places a wireless call, which transmits the caller's voice and his or her number to the closest tower 2. The tower transmits the caller's voice signal, the wireless phone's callback number, and the tower's ID code to a mobile switching center. 3. Notified of the emergency, the position-determining system uses GPS satellites to find the caller's location, sending latitude/longitude location data to a location information database. 4. The routing number alerts the local exchange carrier that the call is an emergency, and the carrier's 911 switch decides automatically which emergency call center is appropriate and assigns the call. 5. At the appropriate emergency call center, an operator receives the 911 voice call. 6. The operator dispatches emergency response team to save the day. http://www.sprint.com/business/newsletters/articles/e911how_federal01.jsp Team Platinum
