Plan for Cisco Emergency Responder Overview
Cisco Emergency Responder (Emergency Responder) helps you manage emergency calls in your telephony network so that you can respond to these calls effectively and so that you can comply with local ordinances concerning the handling of emergency calls. In North America, these local ordinances are called "enhanced 911," or E911. Other countries and locales have similar ordinances.
Because emergency call ordinances can differ from location to location within a country, region, state, or even metropolitan area, Emergency Responder gives you the flexibility to configure your emergency call configuration to specific local requirements. However, ordinances differ from location to location, and security requirements differ from company to company, so you must research your security and legal needs before deploying Emergency Responder.
