Jointly Developed and Tested with Microsoft to Provide an End-to-End Emergency Strategy that Helps Keep Everyone in the Enterprise Safe
OMAHA, Neb., April 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intrado Corporation (“Intrado” or the “Company”), a global leader in technology-enabled services, today announced the release of its Enhanced 911 (E911) solution for Microsoft Teams with Direct Routing, which enables enterprises to route and deliver 911 calls and dispatchable location information to the appropriate emergency assistance center.
The E911 solution supports all users, whether on-premises or remote, to help organizations meet E911 federal and state regulations, while avoiding liability risks. Intrado’s E911 solution for Teams is a plug and play product that benefits from Microsoft’s new Dynamic E911 feature, allowing enterprises to automatically locate Teams clients and provide granular, dispatchable location information with a 911 call.
With the Federal Communications Commission’s recent adoption of dispatchable location rules, and as a result of Section 506 of RAY BAUM’S Act, enterprises are assessing and augmenting their E911 capabilities to ensure compliance with these new regulatory obligations. Teams’ new location tracking feature, coupled with Intrado’s E911 solution, is an end-to-end emergency strategy that helps organizations meet these regulations, and keeps everyone in the enterprise safe.

- Compatible with all Microsoft certified Session Border Controllers (SBCs) for Teams with Direct Routing

“Enterprise communications are no longer centered on voice/phone services alone. I’m excited that Intrado is partnering with innovative and fast-growing unified communications technologies like Microsoft Teams to simplify critical connections to first responders. As business communication tools evolve, customers choose Intrado for our proven ability to connect their users to over 6,000 emergency communication centers in North America, regardless of the technology they use,” said Jeff Robertson, President of Intrado Life & Safety. “We do this by working in close collaboration with leading unified communications providers like Microsoft.”
Intrado’s E911 solution for Teams was tested first-hand with enterprises who participated in Microsoft’s Technology Adoption Programs (TAP) before Dynamic E911’s general availability. Intrado, a Microsoft Partner, is also listed as an E911 provider with multiple solutions validated with Microsoft certified SBCs.
“Intrado has worked with Microsoft to provide dynamic location services for U.S. voice customers over the past 10 years. Time matters, so we depend upon Intrado to provide the reliable network for emergency services to locate and respond to users,” explains Paul Cannon, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Microsoft Teams.
