TCS SMS to 9-1-1 Service
Intrado SMS to 9-1-1 Service

As of August 7 2014, as validated by the tracking report available at the Federal Communications Commission web site.

TCS’ EMedia™ solution gives a 9-1-1 authority the ability to enhance the SMS to 9-1-1 service being offered by Tier 1 carriers today. The carrier-provided service lacks capabilities that are commonplace to a public safety entity, such as language translations, advanced reporting, logging, and CAD integration. TCS’ EMedia service aggregates all SMS to 9-1-1 traffic from multiple wireless carriers and Text Control Centers (TCC) vendors into a single interface to the PSAP. The EMedia architecture offers a common interface to the PSAP regardless of the number of wireless carriers or TCC vendors. EMedia is built entirely using NENA i3 elements adapted for use by non-voice media, and is fully compliant with ATIS/JSTD-110 standard text delivery methods. As such, the design and functional components inherent to EMedia provide an easy transition into a robust and standards-compliant ESInet, with support for voice and various types of multi-media.

Nearing 200 deployments of SMS to 9-1-1 service in the U.S. to date, TCS is the market leader. We have the experienced teams who will implement, train, and provide ongoing service to your PSAP, so the transition is seamless. Trust the company that was first and continues to lead in SMS to 9-1-1.
