Now more than ever, 911 networks need the highest degree of redundancy, diversity and reliability

by | Jun 16, 2022 | Blog

Instances of major outages in service provider networks disrupting 911 services have become a common occurrence across the USA.  Their impact on consumers, and overall public safety, has garnered attention from the FCC, and in some cases triggered follow-up investigations.

The Tellabs 1000 MSAP can help service providers build redundancy, diversity and reliability into their 911 networks. And better yet, it is ideal for creating 911 Public-Safety Answering Point (PSAP) diversity architecture in an efficient and economical manner.

The Tellabs solution is a unique solution, since we are the only manufacturer of fiber-fed digital loop carrier equipment on the market today. That means that Tellabs 1000 MSAP can terminate any legacy copper circuit on a fully redundant multi-service access platform and transport those circuits across diverse copper or fiber network links. With the legacy of Tellabs, and the proven track record of the Tellabs 1000 MSAP, it is highly likely that our equipment is already approved, installed and operationalized with most service providers, making its use as a solution even more attractive.

To learn more about leveraging the Tellabs 1000 MSAP for adding the highest degree of redundancy, diversity and reliability for connectivity to E911 Public-Safety Answering Points, please refer to our Tellabs Broadband 911 Redundancy and Diversity Summary.
