Dynamic information such as GPS coordinates are known by Google, Siri and other Apps on a smart phone, but these Apps don’t have the way, or key, to share that information with the outside world. It’s available on the phone, but the 9-1-1 center can’t get at it.
Even though my name doesn’t appear on this new No Jitter article, it was co-written by Avaya’s Mark Fletcher and me. It seemed odd listing my name with such a blatant shout-out so I willingly chose to remain a silent partner. However, I don’t mind sharing the secret with you, my faithful blog readers.
No matter what, it’s a very interesting look at a clever way to apply WebRTC to 9-1-1. I hope you agree.
