Manatee County Selects Airbus DS Communications’ VESTA® Router and ESInet Services

Manatee County, Florida, has selected Airbus DS Communications Next-Generation 9-1-1 as-a-service offering to better serve citizens with improved public safety communications. The company will provide NG9-1-1 call routing and ESINet connectivity from their latest VESTA®NEXT Portfolio of NG9-1-1 Solutions-as-a-Service, including the VESTA® Router Service. Located along the Gulf Coast, Manatee County is comprised of six public safety answering points (PSAPs) and serves more than 350,000 residents. The county has 45 call taking positions that process more than 260,000 emergency calls a year. The county has been an Airbus DS Communications customer since 2006. With the NG9-1-1 VESTA Router Service, Manatee County will be able to connect with other public safety agencies that are part of a standard, i3 compliant ESInet thus offering them greater opportunities for interagency communications. As an example, the County will be able to establish policy routing rules (Policy Routing Function - PRF) which directs call routing based on important variables, like Calltaker availability. This is critical in a community like Manatee that can experience high call volumes during peak times such as hurricane season. Additionally, Manatee County will have 24/7 technical support, system monitoring and security with Airbus DS Communications Network Security Operations Center (NSOC). Manatee will also gain a 24/7 view into their day-to-day operations via the MyVESTATM Portal where they will be able to see the status of all tickets and sort by open/closed or by priority level for any given time period.

Airbus DS Communications Launches Vesta® Map Local to Improve 9-1-1 Location Accuracy

Airbus DS Communications announced that it has launched a new solution within its VESTA® 9-1-1 portfolio – VESTA® Map Local. The new mapping platform was developed with Airbus DS Communications‘ technology partner GeoComm. It is one of the first mapping systems to integrate both RapidSOS location technology and the Esri® ArcGIS online maps. These capabilities help Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) improve location accuracy for indoor wireless calls and offer unprecedented user performance and map display speed. Plus, the VESTA Map Local solution integrates with the company’s VESTA 9-1-1 call handling system, saving PSAPs valuable seconds when they matter most. With the integration of the RapidSOS NG911 Clearinghouse, PSAPs now have the ability to pinpoint wireless callers’ locations more quickly and with greater accuracy. The technology transmits precise, device-based hybrid locations from smartphones directly to the VESTA 9-1-1 console by using all available sensors on modern smartphone devices – including GPS, WiFi Access Points, bluetooth beacons, and barometric pressure sensors. The Medina County Sherriff’s Office, a three position PSAP, located in Texas and The Collier County Sherriff’s Office, a 36 position PSAP, located in Florida were beta partners for the VESTA Map Local solution. Both were eager to adopt the new technology to strengthen public safety communications for their communities. The VESTA Map Local solution is also one of the first to use the innovative Esri® ArcGIS Runtime platform. With Esri, a leader in geographic information systems (GIS), and the ArcGIS online maps, VESTA Map Local users will be able to extend Telecommunicators’ views outside county lines, where no map or GIS data previously existed. This means that, whether a wireless call originates inside or outside of a county, 9-1-1 Calltakers will have contextual data – including streets or common points of interest such as lakes or streams – to help them locate callers.
