The article offers information on next-generation 911 (NG-911) architectures that are based on Internet Protocol (IP). Walt Magnussen, director for telecommunications at the Texas A&M University Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center, believes that the movement of 911 networks to IP-based platforms is unavoidable. Moving to next-generation architectures will reportedly give access to many more methods of communication within the 911 network and will greatly improve information exchanges between public safety answering points (PSAP).
