Comtech Wins Text to 9-1-1 Contract in Maryland
Wednesday, April 11, 2018 | Comments

Comtech Telecommunications received a two-year multimillion dollar contract to provide next-generation text to 9-1-1 for the state of Maryland.

9-1-1 centers across the state can now deploy the service via two different methods: integrated session initiation protocol (SIP)/message session relay protocol (MSRP) or Comtech’s web browser-based service, EMedia.

“We applaud Gov. (Larry) Hogan and the state of Maryland for empowering all its citizens to reach and receive help in situations where it is not safe or possible to make a voice call and for outfitting its telecommunicators to receive and respond to text messages sent to 9-1-1,” said Fred Kornberg, president and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “We are honored that Maryland has chosen to rely on us to provide this new and innovative emergency service.”
