NG 9-1-1 Call Handling

Our VESTA® 9-1-1 system establishes the new benchmark for NG9-1-1 call handling. It combines Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) call handling with advanced Airbus DS Communications call control technologies to support the emergency and administrative call handling needs of PSAPs with up to 250 positions. It also includes standard telephony features, e.g., Automatic Call Distribution (ACD), one-button transfer and dynamic conferencing. Plus, its flexible, open architecture often eliminates the need for a traditional PBX, reducing call center costs and easily accommodating single and multi-site (geodiverse) deployments.

Most importantly, the VESTA 9-1-1 system features a highly configurable and vastly intuitive user interface, enabling familiarity and minimizing your Calltakers' learning curve.
