Be Ready for Text-to-911

SIP/MSRP Interoperability Lab
For NENA i3 Standards Compliance

The Comtech TCS Text-to-911 MSRP Interoperability Lab is available now, with the objective of continuous conformance to NENA i3 standards compliance. Our Interoperability Lab will enable NENA i3-compliant call handling solution vendors to test their text-to-911 SIP/MSRP interfaces and software prior to deployment by Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) public safety answering points (PSAPs). In addition to phone calls for assistance, hundreds of PSAPs are starting to receive Short Message Service (SMS) text messages from the public. The Interoperability Lab will allow call handling solution vendors to test the interfaces that process these messages. This will provide an effective path to ensure smooth deployment of Message Session Relay Protocol (MSRP)-based interfaces for text-to-911. PSAPs, in turn, will know that the vendor’s call-handling software has been proven effective and reliable, prior to relying upon it to process emergency text messages from the public.

There is no need to bring equipment to the lab; Comtech TCS will provide a secure connection for the tester (vendor) to receive and reply to text messages and monitor the testing. The CPE vendor will need a Session Border Controller (SBC) in their network. Comtech TCS will provide access to its Interoperability Lab through a secure Virtual Private Network
