Cassidian Communications successfully has upgraded the 911 call-processing solution at the York-Poquoson-Williamsburg and the James City County emergency communications centers in Virginia. The upgrades at York-Poquoson-Williamsburg and James City County, together, are one of the first geo-diverse Sentinel Patriot call-processing solution installations in the state.

The Sentinel Patriot solution’s IP architecture, designed expressly for next-generation-911 applications, is based on current and evolving critical communications technologies and standards. This allows for the sophisticated design of backup, disaster recovery and overflow operations with the assured ability to provide reliable service under unexpected conditions. The geo-diverse deployment model provides maximum system survivability, and the efficient network architecture design minimizes data traffic and bandwidth usage for ongoing cost savings.

Rounding out the complete NG-911 solution suite designed for York-Poquoson-Williamsburg and James City County is the ORION Vela advanced mapping solution, the Aurora MIS solution for complete information management and the full suite of managed services —including disaster recovery, monitoring and response, and antivirus updating — all provided by Cassidian Communications.
