Emergency Telecommunications System Terminator

Definition:

This terminator represents the telecommunications systems that connect a caller with a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). These systems transparently support priority wireline and wireless caller access to the PSAP through 9-1-1 and other access mechanisms like 7 digit local access numbers, and motorist aid call boxes. The calls are routed to the appropriate PSAP, based on caller location when this information is available. When available, the callerís location and call-back number are also provided to the PSAP by this interface. This facility may also be used to notify the public - residents and businesses - of emergency situations using a Reverse 911 capability.
