Next Generation 911 Plugin for legacy platforms
Carbyne’s high-availability plugin c-Lite provides NG911 functionality to PSAPs currently using legacy call-handling software, enabling Pinpoint Location, Live Video Streaming and Chat to 911 functionality. No integration needed. No app required. No risk.
Emergency call centers report an average call duration of two minutes and 40 seconds! The call handler spends most of that time trying to identify the caller, his phone number and location, and only then – listens to the caller’s description of the event.
Locating the event
Legacy network-based location solutions, such as ANI/ALI, are poorly built for the modern day. Most call-handling platforms don’t leverage the positioning features of mobile devices, making calls from those who don’t know where they are, or who are not at an address (lake, ocean, forest, etc) challenging to find.
Trying to “picture” the situation
Call Takers, in their attempt to understand the nature of the emergency, are dependent on the verbal description of the caller, as their call-handling systems are unable to utilize the video capabilities of the caller’s mobile device.
Communicating with callers who cannot speak
When a caller is not in a position where they can speak, with over 90% of PSAPs in the US still unable to leverage chat or text functionality, call-takers are limited in the tools they can use to communicate.
