Minnesota Selects Inteliquent to Help in NG 9-1-1 Transition
Wednesday, September 23, 2020 | Comments

The state of Minnesota selected Inteliquent as the state’s next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) services provider to ingress all 9-1-1 calls on behalf of the state. This is the latest statewide announcement in the initiative to advance NG 9-1-1 solutions nationwide.

The state of Minnesota issued a request for proposals (RFP) in August 2019 for ingress network technology needs to support NG 9-1-1 services for the state. Inteliquent's solution is an ingress network, which will interface with a core next-generation provider and an emergency services IP network (ESInet) to supply end-to-end NG 9-1-1. The state of Minnesota selected Inteliquent for its networking expertise, NG 9-1-1 knowledge and an ability to deliver the required highly available and resilient service efficiently and predictably.

Inteliquent's nationwide network, which includes facilities in Minneapolis and Plymouth, Minnesota, forms the underlying basis of the NG 9-1-1 call aggregation solution architecture. Having this infrastructure and network in place will enable Inteliquent to quickly implement the required architecture for supporting the state of Minnesota's migration of emergency services to NG 9-1-1. Inteliquent will leverage its experience of deploying county and statewide NG 9-1-1 call aggregation services, as well as its existing relationships with many of the originating service providers (OSPs) operating in Minnesota, to develop migration plans for OSPs.

"The communications landscape is evolving at a rapid pace, which is in turn driving the demand for NG 9-1-1 services," said Chandy Ghosh, Inteliquent chief operating officer (COO) and general manager of emergency services. "This collaboration between Inteliquent and the state of Minnesota provides an opportunity to progress our country towards the adoption of NG 9-1-1 nationwide."
