Federal Engineering to Assist Canadian City with NG 9-1-1 Procurement
Monday, April 12, 2021 | Comments

The city of Peterborough in Ontario, Canada, chose Federal Engineering (FE) to assist in the procurement of next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) solutions for the city.

“Although there are similarities between public-safety systems in the United States and those in Canada, we recognize that there are many operational and technical aspects that are unique to Canada,” said Federal Engineering President and CEO Ronald F. Bosco. “That is why, to best serve the Canadian market, Federal Engineering established a Canadian practice. The FE Canadian Practice provides Canadian subject matter experts who have supported public safety throughout their careers and are located in country. We believe no other major firm can offer jurisdictions throughout all the provinces and territories our level of unique PSAP and public safety mobile radio expertise. We are thrilled that the City of Peterborough has recognized our targeted skillsets and selected FE for this important NG911 project.”

Federal Engineering will develop a request for proposals (RFP) to acquire an NG 9-1-1 vendor solution for the city after performing a gap and needs assessment to assess public-safety answering points’ (PSAPs) readiness to transition to NG 9-1-1.

Federal Engineering will assess the city’s customer premises equipment (CPE), the network including performance, cybersecurity, the emergency services IP network (ESInet), utilization and call flow, call logging and recording, and personnel.

The firm will then deliver an ESInet Assessment and Recommendations Report that will serve as the basis for an RFP to procure NG 911 services and equipment.
