Talladega County 9-1-1: 100% Network Availability for Emergency Calls Countywide with WhatsUp Gold
sponsored by Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold

Until last year, emergency and non-emergency calls for assistance in Talladega County, Alabama, could be received by any of multiple Public Safety Answering Points depending on the caller’s location.

Inefficiencies were common. Callers might need more than one service, for example both the police and an ambulance. Cell phones and VoIP phones compounded the problem: it was not always clear where the caller was located.

Talladega County 9-1-1 began operating as a consolidated communication center in November of 2009. Soon after the installation Kennedy engaged Ipswitch Professional Services to help him optimize WhatsUp Gold.
