911 Enable Introduces the Virtual Emergency Gateway for Small and Medium Businesses

Updated: January 07, 2011

MONTREAL, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- 911 Enable, a division of Connexon Telecom, Inc., today announced the release of a virtualized version of its award-winning Emergency Gateway appliance. The Virtual Emergency Gateway (V-EGW) provides advanced E911 management capabilities for small and medium businesses (SMBs) with up to 1,500 users.

The V-EGW is a virtualized appliance that runs on VMware ESXi 4.x or greater. It delivers the same robust E911 functionality as the Emergency Gateway hardware appliance, with key features such as automatic IP phone tracking, on-site security desk notification, and support for remote workers. The V-EGW is also used to securely communicate with the 911 Enable Emergency Routing Service (ERS), which delivers emergency calls and detailed location information to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) across the US and Canada.

The V-EGW is simple to deploy and maintain, helping SMBs eliminate unnecessary capital expenditures while meeting all state and local E911 regulations. It can be quickly delivered and implemented, with a smaller appliance footprint that allows for optimized resource allocation. Because the V-EGW does not require dedicated hardware, an organization can save considerably on power consumption, hardware maintenance and upgrades, monitoring, support and compatibility. And like all virtual appliances, the V-EGW offers robust security and reliability.

"911 Enable understands that SMBs often deal with many of the same E911 challenges facing enterprises, but may not have the space, time, or resources to implement a hardware-based solution," said Lev Deich, Director of 911 Enable. "The Virtual Emergency Gateway reflects our commitment to making E911 available for businesses of all types and sizes, allowing SMBs to benefit from enterprise-class E911 management features while enjoying a lower total cost of ownership."
