Meanwhile, a changing workforce embracing mobility and teleworking creates challenges in location tracking. In this session, you'll learn how to maintain accurate 911 information in a multi-vendor environment, on premises and in the cloud, while implementing features such as the ability to notify security desks of 911 calls, call recording, and misdial prevention.
