Public Safety SmartBrief | Mar 15, 2017

The FCC is investigating an AT&T wireless outage last week in at least 10 states that affected 9-1-1 calls. NENA said the outage highlights the need to implement next-generation 9-1-1 technology, which "can intelligently route around outages, redirect calls to other regions, or use backup facilities in ways that legacy E9-1-1 systems cannot."
