Vonage Yes, let's call it what it really is. It really is "911 dialing" not "911 service".





Yes, let's call it what it really is. It really is "911 dialing" not "911 service". I dispute Vonage's definition of a what a PSAP is. "911 dialing" is really nothing more than a speed dial code to a non-emergency or adminstrative number provided to Vonage by Intrado, Vonage's contracted 911 solution provider. Vonage acknowledged this fact recently to the Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission in a letter (page 11, item #4) asking for an extension on the mandatory implementation of basic 911 here in Canada. Here is a link to the letter: http://www.crtc.gc.ca/PartVII/eng/2005/8663/vonage/050504.pdf

A PSAP, a Public Safety Answering (or Access) Point, is an agency typically county (or in RI's case, state) controlled, responsible for answering 9-1-1 calls for emergency assistance from police, fire, and ambulance services. In my opinion, Vonage's 911 dialing doesn't do this. In fact in NYC, Intrado got into hot water with the NYPD for providing the number for the communications department employee sick line for NYPD as the PSAP number. The NYPD demanded that use of the number been discontinued as permission wasn't given to use the number. It is likely not coincidental that the new e911 solution for Vonage is being tested in NYC first after a deal was stuck with Verizon at about the same time. In other cities, Vonage's 911 dialing typically connects to a police non-emergency number as stated in the terms of service. It is not a "back door" number to the local 911 centre as many may believe and is suggested by use of the term "PSAP".

Don't get me wrong, I'm a happy Vonage customer but people really need to understand the difference between "911 dialing" that Vonage provides strictly as a convenience, "e911 service" available from telcos with Automatic Location Information, callback, and host of other features, "basic 911 service" which is like e911 service without the ALI, and "wireless 911" which is like basic 911 but with sector and cell tower information and soon, GPS information for phones that can transmit the information.

Until e911 or even basic 911 is rolled out by Vonage, use your cell phone for 911.
