Oklahoma 9-1-1 Council Selects NGA 911 for NGCS, ESInet Deployment
Thursday, December 17, 2020 | Comments

The 9-1-1 Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (9-1-1 ACOG) selected NGA 911 to deploy next-generation core services (NGCS) and an emergency service IP network (ESInet). The technology will create a more resilient 9-1-1 system to better serve 9-1-1 ACOG's 49 cities in four counties and 20 public-safety answering points (PSAPs).

Under this contract, NGA 911 will implement a secure cloud-based National Emergency Number Association (NENA) i3-compliant next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) system that will replace legacy technology, eliminate network downtime, and meet and exceed public-safety-grade network requirements. When the project is complete, 9-1-1 ACOG will have a fully i3-compliant 9-1-1 network.

"Ensuring the safety of Central Oklahomans is vital to 9-1-1 ACOG's mission," said Mark W. Sweeney, AICP, ACOG executive director. "Partnering with NGA 911 to implement NG 9-1-1 across our region will safeguard those in need and make certain they can be located and reached quickly in an emergency."

The NG 9-1-1 System will enhance communications with the public to include capabilities such as text to 9-1-1, real-time text and provide more accurate call routing. The new 9-1-1 system will also provide PSAPs with one-click control adjustment of service boundaries to handle planned or unplanned events and unexpected call volumes.

"We are pleased to join 9-1-1 ACOG with their foresight to imagine better 9-1-1 and usher in a new era in public safety, where all stakeholders are empowered with modern technology, processes, collaboration and thinking," said NGA 911 CEO Don Ferguson. "We are proud of our solution built with the AWS cloud and excited to bring the power of the public safety and disaster response (PSDR) program to benefit Oklahomans."

The NG 9-1-1 system is expected to go live in 2021.
