E911 Hosted Solutions Provider 911 ETC Joins Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner Program

By Amy Tierney, TMCnet Web Editor

An Everett, Wash.-based E911 hosted solutions provider announced today that it has been certified as a member of the Alcatel-Lucent Alliance and Application Partner Program.
911 ETC helps businesses implement and maintain E911 solutions for Voice over Internet Protocol and TDM to ensure accurate location information for 911 calls. With the certification, the application is now compatible with the Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert) OmniVistaTM 4760 Network Management System for SMBs and enterprises.

The Alcatel-Lucent Alliance and Application Partner Program, or AAPP, supports companies that develop communications applications for Alcatel-Lucent enterprise solutions. Currently, more than 100 certified applications and 300 registered companies are involved in the AAPP, according to the company. The partnerships help keep Alcatel-Lucent solutions at the forefront of the communications industry, officials said.
“911 ETC is excited at the prospect of providing such a needed and strategic application in conjunction with Alcatel-Lucent,” Bill Svien, executive vice president for 911 ETC, said in a statement. “The partnership combines the capabilities of both companies to offer enterprise clients unsurpassed security and safety. Alcatel-Lucent’s worldwide strength in telephony and ETC’s dominance in E-911 solutions should prove to be a winning combination.”
Already, 911 ETC has Alcatel-Lucent customers with its solution in place, company officials told TMCnet. One customer, the Department of Interior,  has the solution in place at several sites, including their main site with more than 3,000 endpoints.
More and more states are adopting enhanced 911, or “E911,” services. Massachusetts and Virginia became the latest states to add laws to the books this summer. With the migration of businesses toward IP-based systems for voice communications, providers of the service, such as 911 ETC, continue to support a plan for a national standard.
Recently, the National Emergency Number Association, or NENA, moved a step forward to develop comprehensive transition plans to migrate to a national Internet Protocol-enabled emergency network capable of receiving and responding to all citizen-activated emergency communications.
