SC County Migrates 911 Service to AT&T’s Call Routing Network

Edgefield County in South Carolina has transitioned its 9-1-1 emergency communications system to AT&T's internet protocol-based call routing service.

The company said Friday its ESInet platform uses National Emergency Number Association standards and a network architecture designed to help public safety answering points manage 911 calls.

ESInet facilitates transmission of calls and text messages to the desired agency through a location-based geospatial routing approach, routes traffic to alternate sites when a PSAP outage occurs and offers backup support via call processing locations nationwide.

“Advanced communications are crucial for fast, reliable emergency responses," said Brian Troup, vice president of AT&T's global public sector business.

"We are proud to be working with Upstate and Midland counties in South Carolina as they take steps to bring the latest technology to their 911 efforts,” Troup added.

S.C.'s Cherokee County also migrated its legacy 911 infrastructure to ESInet service in February.
