Next Gen 9-1-1

A network with true path diversity and high availability, to keep your Public Safety Network operational.

From earthquakes to tornadoes or floods, disasters can happen anytime and anywhere. It is imperative that 9-1-1 emergency infrastructure is equipped with true network path diversity so that if a disaster does strike, citizens are still able to connect with emergency operators. 9-1-1 and Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) network and backhaul systems rely on primary terrestrial network paths. However, should those paths become compromised; thousands can be left at risk with no way to reach emergency services like police, fire fighters and EMT’s. Hughes’ Spaceway 3 Satellite technology can eliminate the risk of 9-1-1 outages by adding alternate network path connectivity with automatic failover switching, should a terrestrial network path ever become disrupted. By incorporating satellite to the 9-1-1 ecosystem, network administrators can ensure their infrastructure has the resiliency necessary to handle any call volume in the face of a major emergency situation.

Ideal for These Types of Networks

Networks that rely on potentially vulnerable terrestrial communication paths:

  • 9-1-1 and Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG911)
    • Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP’s)
  • Land Mobile Radio (LMR)
  • Cellular (3G, 4G and LTE)
  • Public Switched Telephone Networks (PSTN’s)
  • Internet Infrastructure
