As more Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) implement Next Generation 9-1-1 systems, innovative technology is needed to enhance continuity of operations, disaster recovery and more. To better accommodate all the changes the new IP infrastructure brings, an innovative, up-to-date call-handling solution is needed.
Introducing MEVO(+), a fail-safe route for NG 9-1-1 calls.
This state-of-the-art system integrates into Next Generation Core platforms and Legacy systems in providing disaster recovery and backup solutions. With MEVO(+), 9-1-1 call completion is ensured and can accommodate the full breadth of text solutions, location tracking and more.

The MEVO(+) solution is designed to meet 99.999% availability while ensuring call quality meets performance standards. The ground-breaking software provides a disaster recovery system ensuring 9-1-1 call completion whether the platform is the primary solution or the trusted failover method. In addition, MEVO(+) ensures PSAPs have an alternative way for the public to reach 9-1-1 in the event of impairment, scheduled maintenance or other outages, allowing dispatchers to continue normal operations. Implementing this unique service provides an unmatched infrastructure equipping PSAPs with a call-handling system that delivers calls, Automatic Location Information (ALI) and is an ideal option for primary solutions, secondary agencies and/or command center configurations.
