Public Safety News This Week

1. TeleCommunications Systems Launches PSAP E911 Readiness Services
State and local public safety organizations are facing challenges implementing Phase I and II wireless E911 due to lack of in-house expertise and tight budgets. TeleCommunications Systems (TCS) announced the launch of its Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) E911 Readiness Services, which provide a cost- and time-efficient process to implement E911. TCS currently manages 3,500 PSAP connections in the United States and Puerto Rico. (Source: Cellular-News) - more info 

2. Lucent Demonstrates 3G for Public Safety
Technologies announced it is demonstrating live third-generation (3G) mobile applications with several of the industry's leading companies at the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials' (APCO) 2003 Conference & Symposium taking place this week at the Indianapolis Convention Center and RCA Dome. Lucent is collaborating with companies such as Padcom® and Sierra Wireless to highlight how 3G mobile high-speed data networks can be utilized by public safety personnel.

MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: We welcome TCS efforts to help public safety agencies make the task of implementing E911 easier. 

Lucent's efforts to market 3G against private public safety networks that these agencies have been implementing for the past 20 years are noteworthy. Will the 3G wireless network operators give higher QoS (guaranteed performance commitments and security) to public safety agencies in preference to paying private customers - that's the tough one.
