Solacom Presents Insights From NG9-1-1 Deployments at NENA 2018 Conference & Expo

Speaking sessions highlight the benefits of successful NG9-1-1 implementations and geo-enabled selective transfer

CHICAGO, Ill., June 14, 2018 — Public safety industry experts from Solacom, a leader in 9-1-1 emergency call handling and management systems, will speak at the NENA 2018 Conference & Expo, which takes place from June 16-21 at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

Ray Vilis, Solacom’s vice president of strategic initiatives, will speak on a panel about the operational value of Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) geo-enabled selective transfer capabilities. And Tony Parrott, Solacom’s vice president of sales, will lead public safety answering point (PSAP) directors from across the country in a roundtable discussion about real-world examples of the benefits of NG9-1-1 call handling and management systems.

“Solacom is excited to share its knowledge and expertise at the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) conference once again this year. These sessions are an invaluable opportunity to learn about how migrating to an NG9-1-1 system can solve the challenges facing your PSAP today,” says Tony Parrott.
