Next Generation Core Services
As the public safety industry moves toward new technology, so must states, regions, and local jurisdictions.
Our communications infrastructure is changing, and Comtech is bridging the divide between legacy call routing and next-generation 9-1-1 equipment.
Connecting a Network of Networks
Our market-leading NGCS configuration is modular, scalable, and has been implemented at state, regional, and county levels. NGCS offers a transitional replacement for legacy selective router-based 9-1-1 networks.
Comtech’s NGCS is highly reliable, resilient, and redundant.
Our solution is composed of redundant central system components that provide load sharing and load balancing failover capability.
Software as a Service (SaaS) / Hosted: This model is ideal for public safety entities desiring a speedy deployment and a lower capital expenditure.
In-Network / Managed Service: This model is ideal for public safety entities desiring a lower operational expenditure and/or a dedicated system.
Hybrid: A combination of the hosted and in-network models, the NGCS is modular, flexible, and can be configured to meet the customer’s needs.
- National Emergency Number Association (NENA): NENA i3
- Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS): J‑STD‑110, IMSESINET, NGES, IMS911, ELOC, ESIF
- Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF): SIPCORE, ECRIT, SIPREC, GEOPRIV
