“NG9-1-1 networks based on the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) i3 standards define network transformation route to receive and respond to NG9-1-1 emergency requests via multiple media sources such as SMS, Video, Email, and Instant Messaging (IM),” said Mr. Vijay Kulkarni CEO of GL Communications.
“Major wireless carriers have committed to providing Text-to-911 services to end users. In addition to these primarily carrier dependent services, there are many Over the Top (OTT) IM apps which connect users with the NG9-1-1 system directly.”
He further added, “To consider a series of messages exchanged in a private chat between SIP end-points in a single session, the messages are transported over a session-oriented instant message transport protocol called the Message Session Relay Protocol (MSRP). GL offers enhanced MAPS™ SIP emulator with Instant Messaging (IM) delivery capability conforming with RFC 4975/4976 - Message Session Relay Protocol (MSRP) protocol.”
“GL’s enhanced MAPS™ SIP with MSRP support for Instant Messaging allows SIP vendors, wireless carriers, NG9-1-1 service providers, and emergency communications centers to validate IP applications for NG9-1-1 services prior to deployment.”
