911 Enable becomes first E911 solutions provider to successfully complete interoperability testing with 3COM VCX phone systems
MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2008) - 911 Enable, the leading provider of E911 solutions for IP-PBX systems, today announced that its award-winning Emergency Gateway appliance has earned 3COM certification. The Emergency Gateway was compliance-tested by 3COM for compatibility with version 7 of its VCX IP-PBX system.
The Emergency Gateway is an on-site appliance which helps organizations simplify 911 management while meeting their state and local E911 regulations. Its key features include automatic IP phone tracking, on-site security desk notification, and extensive auditing and reporting capabilities.
