News : Baltimore County Implements 9-1-1 Infrastructure from Unify
Boca Raton, FL, USA, May 7, 2015 -- Unify, a communications software and services firm, announces Baltimore County, Maryland, is an early adopter of Unify's OpenScape platform for the county's transformation to a Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) operation
Located just outside of Washington, DC, Baltimore County's public safety staff serves a population of residents and visitors each year. Baltimore County 9-1-1 manages and coordinates emergency response and disaster preparedness activities and coordinates dispatch with individual fire stations, police precincts, helicopter units and sworn personnel.
One of first examples of NG9-1-1 migration and infrastructure enhancement in the country, Unify provided the Baltimore County Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) with OpenScape Voice and OpenScape Contact Center, delivering the integrated framework they needed to convert their legacy infrastructure onto a SIP-based platform.
Going forward, Unify will work with Baltimore County to leverage their existing investment and bring their internal call management operations to an integrated application layer, empowering their PSAP with communications management solutions.
