Comtech-Telecommunications-Corp.logo-Comtech Telecommunications‘ commercial solutions business unit has secured a potential five-year, $45 million contract to provide IP-based next-generation 9-1-1 technology to support emergency communications across Washington state.

The company said Wednesday will install and manage a statewide enterprise system designed to comply with the National Emergency Number Association’s NG911 geospatial call routing and reporting standards.
