"It's a new day in public safety communications, and with this new day comes challenges and opportunities," said Jeff Robertson, CEO of Airbus DS Communications. "Next Generation can seem daunting, but with the right solution provider, it doesn't have to be. The thousands of PSAPs we serve throughout North America, and any others looking for NG9-1-1 guidance, know the home of VESTA® has a solution. Our team looks forward to discussing the unique needs of 9-1-1 Authorities and helping them feel confident about this journey."

The Airbus team also will be offering NG9-1-1 landscape sessions, a Look into the Future, that examine the technology landscape for NG9-1-1 and how Airbus can address evolving communications requirements for 9-1-1 Authorities and ease their burden.
