TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSYS) said it is pioneering the production deployment of text-to-911 service in the United States.
As reported by the Federal Communications Commission in its May 16, 2014 deployment tracking update, TCS accounts for 52 of the 56 agency deployments across 16 states, or 93 percent of the total.
TCS continues to lead interoperability efforts by working with both legacy, text service providers that use proprietary protocols, as well as next generation providers that use the standards-based MSRP protocol, in order to simplify the deployment and accelerate the adoption by Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) interested in receiving text-to-911 messages.
