A business unit within Airbus Group‘s defense and space segment has unveiled a new public safety communications system that works to combine equipment, software and services in efforts to help federal agencies transition to Next Generation 9-1-1.
The company said Monday Airbus DS Communications‘ VESTA NEXT portfolio offering includes IP call handling, call routing, ESInet and GIS functions as well as engineering, installation, maintenance and communications support.
“Migrating to Next Generation 9-1-1 is no small feat,” said Bob Freinberg, Airbus DS Communications CEO.
“[It] creates the potential for miscommunication, delays and system incompatibilities.”
Airbus added its Competitive Local Exchange Carrier status in several states works to support in-region or in-state networks for public safety answering points.
