VoWiFi E9-1-1

Comtech is changing the way your subscribers reach 9-1-1.

VoWiFi 9-1-1

Carriers are investing in Voice over Wireless Fidelity (VoWiFi) service to improve coverage in rural areas, extend 9-1-1 to roaming subscribers, and increase location accuracy for indoor calls.

Comtech’s VoWiFi E9-1-1 service ensures these carriers can comply with federally mandated emergency call routing rules and regulations.

Our VoWiFi E9‑1‑1 solution supports multiple call-routing configurations and can accommodate routing by geolocation (lat/lon in PIDF‑LO), Master Street Address Guide (MSAG)-validated civic address, default routing to a national emergency call center, and more.
