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.

A comprehensive migration strategy to the VESTA 9-1-1 system is in place for Airbus DS Communications customers using earlier releases of our Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) solutions.

Local Survivability

Designed for 9-1-1 Authorities with remote PSAP sites, Local Survivability in the VESTA 9-1-1 solution helps ensure the availability of 9-1-1 communications at all locations. This means, upon losing connection to the Wide Area Network, the VESTA 9-1-1 solution will automatically reroute calls to a remote system, or "local system," ensuring you keep people connected when it matters most.

It delivers NENA-compliant capabilities and provides great flexibility, both of which allow your agency to implement IP Selective Routing and move to full i3 Emergency Services Routing Proxy and Emergency Call Routing Function (ESRP/ECRF) at a pace right for you. PSAPs taking this logical step first with the VESTA Router solution and Airbus DS Communications are replacing their soon-to-retire legacy selective routers before it's too late and getting on a safe path towards NG9-1-1 and full geospatial routing now.
