Abstract

The State of Montana will utilize the grant funding to migrate to a NG911 system including operations development and deployment of a 9-1-1 Emergency Services IP Network (ESINet).  The operations development will include building Emergency Services Routing Proxies (ESRP) and utilizing the Location-to-Service Translation (LoST) protocol that will provide critical information for call routing.  The ESINet elements will extend the existing IP enabled network providing a full migration to IP enabled 9-1-1 services. The supplemental grant funding will be utilized by 24 sub grantees to update equipment to such things as NG-capable CAD systems, ALI mapping software upgrades and GIS mapping software.
