Airbus DS Communications, Inc. Key Developments

Airbus DS Communications to Introduce its Next Generation 9-1-1 Mapping Solution

Airbus DS Communications announced the launch of its VESTA Map Local solution, powered by GeoComm. This new addition to its VESTA Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1- 1) portfolio will debut at the upcoming National Emergency Number Association (NENA) 2017 Conference & Expo taking place June 3 -8, 2017, in San Antonio, Texas. From Booth #101, company representatives will demonstrate the powerful functionality of the NG9-1-1 client-based mapping product. Created to support one or more PSAPs in a local area, VESTA Map Local gets Calltakers the location details they need. Inbound calls, whether wireline, Phase I or II, VoIP (Voice over IP) or Telematics, plot on digital maps using unique icons. The solution can also combine device-based hybrid locations of mobile phones with indoor maps. With VESTA Map Local, for the first time in history, Calltakers will be able to begin to pinpoint the indoor location of mobile phones. Calltakers will use VESTA Map Local's interactive mapping tools to conduct intuitive searches. Other features include shared markup tools and bookmarks, which improve collaboration within and among PSAPs. Decision-making is further supported through Internet delivery of weather updates, as well as notifications from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Federal GIS data, for complete situational details. Advanced features are available, including indoor building floor plan display, Pictometry and centralized map data validation and distribution. These are possible using the next generation of ArcGIS Runtime from Esri released just late last year. This means PSAPs that choose to install the VESTA Map Local system will be among the first to get access to its robust capabilities.

Airbus DS Communications Announces Management Changes

Airbus DS Communications announced that Jeff Robertson has been named president and CEO of the company. Robertson replaces Bob Freinberg who has served as President and CEO since 2011. As President and CEO, Robertson will build on Freinberg's success by guiding the strategic direction of Airbus DS Communications and continuing the company's commitment to creating smarter ways to keep communities safe. He brings more than 20 years of experience in public safety, previously serving as CEO of two 9-1-1 technology companies, as a former Executive Director and founding board member of the 9-1-1 Industry Alliance, and as Vice President for Intergraph. Robertson will begin his role as president and CEO immediately. Freinberg will remain at Airbus DS Communications in a consultant role to facilitate a smooth transition and ensure the continued success of ongoing business activities.

Airbus DS Communications Launches Updates to VESTA(R) 9-1-1 and VESTA(R) Analytics Solutions

Airbus DS Communications announced new functionality to the VESTA® 9-1-1 and VESTA® Analytics solutions within its VESTA® Next-Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) portfolio. The updates deliver greater flexibility and functionality to public safety answering points (PSAP) in an NG9-1-1 environment. The VESTA 9-1-1 call handling solution, Release 7.0, provides robust enhancements to the Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) features and controls. The updated ACD functionality includes new status indications (ready, not ready and not available) along with the ability to allow Calltakers to select a user configurable reason when going Not Ready. The statuses feed into the ACD system to route calls appropriately and give managers an in-depth look at Calltaker performance. Included in the new release is the VESTA 9-1-1 Heads-Up Display, an informative digital display that presents statistical information for call activity on a real-time basis. As a result, PSAPs have a greater ability to manage call volume and workflow based on the threshold levels, such as number of calls in the queue or length of time before calls are answered. Also included in the new release is enhanced reliability for any hosted VESTA 9-1-1 solution supporting multiple remote PSAPs from geo-diverse data centers. Called local survivability, the functionality adds redundancy for the remote PSAPs by allowing them to continue to take calls when the connection to the host site is lost. The VESTA 9-1-1 system updates also include increased system capacity, a queue display that improves Calltakers' ability to view information such as wait time and number of Calltakers available. Plus the system now offers enhanced auto attendant functionality and support for the latest Microsoft Operating Systems. The VESTA® Analytics solution, Release 3.1, brings a host of new features including MagIC™ Data Repository (MDR) migration, which allows PSAPs to migrate databases from multiple standalone sites into a single hosted VESTA solution. Having years of data in one location makes it more efficient for PSAPs to recall records for historical analysis and data requests.
