The Commonwealth has chosen to a project that will connect three Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) with an IP-enabled, Next Generation-capable 9-1-1 network, providing the foundation for a state-wide network, and the future connection of the remaining sixty-six PSAPs. With supplemental funding, equipment will be purchased to establish redundancy within the network, the three PSAPs on the network will commence handling "live" 9-1-1calls over the network, and transition plans will be developed for migrating the remaining sixty-six PSAPs to the network.
