Breaking Down the Myth’s of E-911
MYTH 1: Your PBX sends location information to the PSAP when you dial 911. The PSAP determines your location based on the caller ID or ANI that is sent by the PBX on PRI digital trunks or CAMA trunks. This is commonly referred to as location by reference, since the ANI only references the location information and does not contain the information itself. 911MYTH

MYTH 2: It is illegal to send ANY number other than your own for caller ID. Therefore using ELINs not owned by the Enterprise for E9-1-1 Location Reporting is actually illegal. This law only applies if you are using the fictitious Caller ID "with the intent to defraud, cause harm, or wrongfully obtain anything of value" according to the Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009 passed by the Senate on February 23, Sending out an employee's home telephone number, for example, when making a call from their VPN telephone is legally allowable, and the correct thing to do. 911MYTH
MYTH 3: Since my cell phone works for E9-1-1 everywhere, I'll just use that for my 911 calls since the PSAP always can locate that phone. Cellular phones are capable of providing your location using two different mechanisms. The first, more modern, mechanism is through GPS longitude and latitude; sometimes referred to as X and Y coordinates. The second mechanism, is not as precise, but can be accurate in many instances. This mechanism uses radio triangulation and complex angle of arrival information at the cellular tower to plot the devices position in the form of latitude and longitude, however, similar to the first mechanism, the location is limited to the X and Y coordinates. Although X and Y may be more than sufficient outdoors, they do not reflect the device altitude, and that may cause confusion for someone located on a floor other than the ground floor. 911MYTH
MYTH 4: 911 is regulated by the FCC, and is mandated by law. Although it is true that 911 is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission, to say that is mandated by law is misleading. In general the FCC does not regulate E9-1-1 for MLTS PBX Systems. Although there are several laws on the books regarding E9-1-1, these are currently regulated at the state level. Most of these laws are very specific in nature and don't cover every scenario. Additionally, there are currently only 16 states that require E9-1-1 provisioning in multi-line telephone systems 911MYTH
Development and Deliverables Model legislation was developed during 2007 and 2008 collaboratively via working sessions and ad hoc meetings An explanatory companion document was produced in an effort to further educate both legislators and end users to new, affordable technologies to deal with VoIP and user mobility (available on Documents were finalized and issued to the public on Friday, Feb. 24, 2009 After it’s publication it has been used in Virginia, Massachusetts, and now Michigan and California PUC as the baseline for legislation initiatives.

MYTH in my PBX requires extensive programming and costly recurring charges. In many cases, a 911 deployment within an enterprise can be accomplished by using only the feature set built into the PBX. Add on software is not required unless a more granular level of device location discovery is required, as well as an enhanced on site notification mechanism that can provide floor plans and additional information to local responders. 911MYTH

MYTH 6: I have to install specialized CAMA trunks in my PBX to carry E9-1-1 calls. E9-1-1 calls can egress the PBX on any trunk type. Since the location reference is embedded in the call signaling, a trunk capable of carrying ANI information is required. In addition to being able to use CAMA trunks, the ANI information can also be conveyed within a PRI information element on any PRI or BRI trunk that has a D channel associated with it. 911MYTH
MYTH 7: I can provide better service if I answer 911 calls using my internal security staff. Local Termination or operating a Private Emergency Answer Point (PEAP) must be carefully considered by your Risk Management department. Some states, such as Maine, have very specific requirements dictating the proper operation if a PEAP, and approval as well as certifications by the persons answering calls is required. 911MYTH
MYTH 8: Once E9-1-1 is provisioned in my PBX, I never have to worry about it again. Any time there is a topology change in your building, or an individual relocates to another Emergency Response Location, an update of the information may be required. In addition to on site documentation that must remain current, the descriptor in the Public ALI database may require adjustment and re-verification from time to time, even when using static entries. 911MYTH
MYTH 9: Local trunking is required at every branch office to enable calls to reach the local PSAP As long as you have trunking to the same SELECTIVE ROUTER as your branch, you will be able to reach the local PSAP. If the Selective Router for your main office and branch office are the same, or they are networked, Caller ID and ANI control the routing and PSAP termination of 911 calls. 911 MYTH

Location Awareness for Avaya WLAN In the US, 911 relies on CLID matching specific pre-provisioned location information WLAN devices are constantly on the move and pose a unique problem for Enterprise based 911 solutions The Sentry 8100 Scout is a software module specifically designed to communicate with the Avaya 8100 series wireless LAN controllers tracking WLAN device to Access Point associations Continuous location updates are sent to the Call Server as the device roams – Call Server is now location aware Developed in conjunction with Avaya Location ERL CLID Confidential - Copyright 2011, Conveyant Systems, Inc.
