7 The Business Issues & Problems RedSky Addresses

8 The Problem Over 60 million office workers do not have the 911 protection that they have at home If you call 911 from a high-rise or a campus, nobody knows where you are High profile incidents continue to highlight the importance of E-911

9 Why E911? Real-Life Stories
Man Found Dead After Phone Glitch Confuses 911  UPDATED - Monday April 24, :07am     eVideo: 911 Error Blamed on Computer Glitch Gaithersburg (AP) - An immigrant from Bangladesh was found dead at his Gaithersburg office this week, hours after he called 911 saying he needed medical help. The Washington Post reports ‘X’ phoned for help 40 minutes after he started work at a medical company in Gaithersburg on Tuesday - but almost 10 hours passed before somebody found him lying on the floor of his office. Police said an apparent phone glitch sent medical personnel to the wrong address - and, finding nothing amiss, they believed the call was unfounded.

10 Effective and Timely 911 Emergency Response is Critical on several fronts:
Business Imperative Protection for valued corporate assets and people Moral Imperative Ethical responsibility to your people Legal Imperative Protecting the organization from liability caused by poor response to an emergency Technology enables it Workplace safety issues Health Workplace/school violence Fire or environmental Regulatory Requirement Federal & State Government Legislation mandates it There are several issues you need to consider as a business operating a multi-line telephone system. - Emergency preparedness and 911 are corporate responsibilities that employees and the general public expect and rely on. There are several laws on the books protecting employee safety including environmental health and safety regulations from OSHA and now 13 states have passed Enhanced 911 laws that also support employee safety. But beyond laws and regulations, the technology is available today on the private phone system that can provide a greater level of protection for 911 callers by facilitating prompt emergency response. - Consider the many issues that come up on a day to day basis that impact workplace safety. Health, workplace violence, or a fire or environmental hazard. All of these things require prompt emergency response, which E911 capabilities directly impact. Dealing with and responding to these issues is the responsibility of corporate security. - Many of these emergencies are not covered under workers compensation. If a company knowingly averts a statutory requirement or ignoring a known safety issue opens the organization to undo risk and liability in the event of a mishandled emergency. Questions you should consider are “how many 911 calls did we have last month and did emergency responders show up at the right place?”; “Do I have employees working after hours that may not have access to all of the onsite security services that are provided during the business day?”; “Am I doing everything I can to facilitate prompt emergency response?” These types of issues should be raised to your corporate legal counsel and risk managers to make sure you are utilizing the tools available to you to mitigate risk and provide the greatest level of security.

11 E911 Legislation Passed & Pending – What are you Doing?
Challenge: E911 Legislation Passed & Pending – What are you Doing? Arkansas • Colorado • Connecticut • Florida • Illinois • Kentucky Louisiana • Maine • Michigan • Minnesota • Mississippi • Nebraska Ohio • Pennsylvania • Texas • Vermont • Washington

12 E A National Issue Senators Clinton (D-NY) and Burns (D-MT), Congresswoman Eshoo (D-CA) and Congressman Shimkas (R-IL) have launched the E Congressional Caucus FCC is taking comments for National E-911 Regulations Department of Homeland Security is providing resources to frontline emergency responders Corporate leaders are responding to America’s call to action E911 is a national safety issue. Stories about the lack of location information for emergency responders continues to make headlines. That is why organizations like the E911 Congressional Caucus and the FCC are working together on a national level to institute regulations to protect all American citizens whether they be at home, at work or visiting public facilities. E911 puts critical information in the hands of those who need it, our emergency responders. It not only helps save the lives of those in need, but also maximizes emergency resources. Organizations around the country are recognizing the need for E911 and are taking action.

13 Scoping the Risks for Non-Compliance Regulatory Penalties and Liability
Red Sky White Paper Statutory fines may be levied against an organization for non-compliance Fines vary based on state OSHA may consider non-compliance a direct violation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, a.k.a. The General Duty Clause Penalties can run from $7,000 - $70,000 per day E-911 could be considered part of an organization’s Emergency Action Plan Common law liability is the real risk Intentional disregard of a statutory requirement is the driver Exceptions to workers compensation provide the vehicle Talk about the statutory and regulatory fines, but the liability is the real risk we want to outline. The fines from a statutory perspective are non-existent for Minnesota. There are only two out of 12 states that have fines, but one of the states treats the intentional disregard as a criminal act.

14 What is E911?

15 Enhanced 911 Defined Pinpoints the exact location of a 911 call for dispatchers FLR 10 STE 1000 RM 1004 FLR 3 6th AVE WALL Essential for multi-floor building and campuses Puts location information directly in the hands of emergency responders Saves lives! Enhanced 911 pinpoints the exact location of a 911 caller from within a high-rise building or campus environment. Without E911, the 911 dispatcher only knows the billing telephone address of the PBX, which may not be the same address as the 911 caller and definitely won’t indicate the location of the caller within a building. Capabilities on the switch and within the telephone network exist today that enable you to automatically indicate the building address, floor and room of the 911 caller automatically.

18 E911 ALI and ANI Components
What is ALI? Automatic Location Identification (ALI) ALI provides the Public Safety Answering Point with the location information for emergency personnel What is ALI data? A format that includes Phone number Location, 20 characters Business name Street directional Street name Community and state

19 911 Call Processing

20 How did the location information for phone number (312) get into the Public Safety Answering Point’s Server? AND Who is responsible for getting it there? Well, it’s quite the Challenge to an organization as you’ll see….

21 E911: The Key Requirements
Implement ISDN PRI or CAMA Passes ANI or unique telephone number of 911 caller Ensures proper call routing through the PSTN 911 center must be able to call back the 911 caller Identifies appropriate ALI association Establish and Maintain ALI at regional databases Define location information for every phone Send data to regional E911 databases in NENA format Establish process for ongoing ALI updates Monitor acceptance and verification to ensure accuracy Track and store historical and transaction detail Record of risk management and compliance Evidence in the event of litigation Engage the time and resources to complete the task

32 E911 – RedSky’s Ability to Handle Mobility / “Road Warriors”

33 New business issues present opportunity for you…
The existing 911 network does not support mobility, work at home or remote offices without local 911 trunks Issue #2: Local trunks are not always cost effective or even an option depending on the type of user The solution: RedSky’s integration with Avaya and partnership with Intrado & TCS offers a solution for home office, remote office and nomadic IP phone users without local trunks: E911 Manager with Location Information Services (LIS)

34 Location Tracking – Remote office, home office and nomadic workers are tracked when they register
E911 Manager captures phone registrations and updates the call server and VoIP Positioning Center with new location information E911 Manager Location Information Services (LIS)

35 Remote users are prompted to designate new location upon login to their Avaya softphone
User must select from one of four options Pre-defined locations are easily recalled and selected by the user New locations are validated through RedSky Location Information Services User can “opt-out” of 911 service by agreeing to a legal waiver

36 E911 – RedSky’s Ability to Provide a Global E911 Solution

37 E911 Globally – Factors to Understand
E911 is not a Global Standard. Each country has its own Unique Challenges. RedSky does have a Solution today, a way of addressing a Global issue.
