La. Deploys Next Generation 9-1-1 to Streamline Emergency Comms


Today NGA 911 LLC, an emergency calling technology services company, launched a Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) network that includes both an Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet) and Next Generation Core Services (NGCS) for local 9-1-1 Authorities across the State of Louisiana. Key details are available at

"By empowering local 9-1-1 authorities with a state-centric ESInet and NGCS, the Next Generation of 9-1-1 is a reality today in Louisiana," said Don Ferguson, CEO NGA 911 LLC. "Untangling the regulatory, procurement, and technology barriers has been critical in achieving this long awaited milestone," he added.

NGA 911 is using the Cloud to better protect the citizens, residents and visitors in Louisiana.  With this network the world's most modern infrastructure has been deployed without any capital expense to the State of Louisiana. In fact, it's even future proof—as technology advances, upgrades are seamless and immediate.

The Louisiana ESInet is a major milestone in the 9-1-1 industry across North America.  Instead of constraining Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) with expensive, long-term contracts that choke innovation, PSAPs can comfortably transform to a carrier-agnostic NG9-1-1 strategy. 

The once daunting gauntlet between the constraints of legacy 9-1-1 and demands of NG9-1-1 is navigated by NGA 911's cost effective, revolutionary technology. Individual PSAPs no longer have to purchase 9-1-1 equipment just to plan their pathway toward NG9-1-1. Instead, they get a risk-free, secure and non-disruptive pathway from the selective routing technology of the 1970s. Captain Jack Varnado said, "The ability to move our Emergency Communications Centers onto a Next Generation 9-1-1 Network is a tremendous step forward for 9-1-1 in Louisiana."
