NGA 911 Deploys 9-1-1 Cloud in Louisiana


According to a recent release, NGA 911, emergency calling technology services provider, has launched a new Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) network that includes both an Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet) and Next Generation Core Services (NGCS) for local 9-1-1 Authorities across the State of Louisiana.

“By empowering local 9-1-1 authorities with a state-centric ESInet and NGCS, the Next Generation of 9-1-1 is a reality today in Louisiana,” said Don Ferguson, CEO, NGA 911. “Untangling the regulatory, procurement, and technology barriers has been critical in achieving this long awaited milestone.”

The Louisiana ESInet is a major milestone in the 9-1-1 industry across North America.  Instead of constraining Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) with expensive, long-term contracts that choke innovation, PSAPs can comfortably transform to a carrier-agnostic NG9-1-1 strategy. 

The once daunting gauntlet between the constraints of legacy 9-1-1 and demands of NG9-1-1 is navigated by NGA 911's technology, the company said. Individual PSAPs no longer have to purchase 9-1-1 equipment just to plan their pathway toward NG9-1-1.  Instead, they get a secure and nondisruptive path away from the selective routing technology of the 1970s.

Captain Jack Varnado of the Livingston Parish Sherriff’s office said, “The ability to move our Emergency Communications Centers onto a Next Generation 9-1-1 Network is a tremendous step forward for 9-1-1 in Louisiana.”

The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit to register now.
