It is no surprise that data communication is swamping telecom networks. Consumers are generating growing amounts of data on their own through texting, emailing, and social networking, and rely less and less on their phones for talking. Yet the current 9-1-1 system was built on the basis of voice communications (call 9-1-1 if you have an emergency). While voice remains the best choice for a 9-1-1 call, most consumers should be provided the option to text or email when they are experiencing an emergency. When needed, texting or emailing is far more discreet and can be done almost silently for those who find themselves in situations where speaking could prove harmful to their own safety. For some consumers, texting is their primary or only option to communicate. So, what are the 9-1-1 experts doing about texting, emailing and the next generation of emergency communications?

Who Should Attend?

  • 9-1-1 coordinators at telecom companies
  • Telecom executives who want to know about and prepare for the next generation of 9-1-1
  • Policy makers working in the areas of emergency communications and homeland security
  • Technology providers who are developing the next generation of 9-1-1
