THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA SELECTS TELIDENT TO PROVIDE 9-1-1 SOLUTIONS

 THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA SELECTS TELIDENT
 TO PROVIDE 9-1-1 SOLUTIONS
 MINNEAPOLIS, July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of British Columbia has chosen Telident, Inc. of Minneapolis to help meet its need to provide full campus connectivity to the local Enhanced 9-1-1 emergency service network.
 Telident's 9-1-1 NCS(TM) (Network Control System) for multiple PBXs will work in conjunction with the university's three Northern Telecom PBXs by identifying the extension making a 9-1-1 call and then transmitting a preassigned identifying number to the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD) emergency 9-1-1 facility serving the campus.
 Jim Tom, the university's director of telecommunications services, is eager to see Telident's 9-1-1 NCS fully installed and operational, since the university's PBX switches cannot currently transmit full station identification information to the GVRD. He stated that, "We felt that with our large, distributed campus population, we had to connect to the GVRD's Enhanced 9-1-1 system in a reasonable way. Telident's 9-1-1 NCS was identified as a possible solution, and after extensive technical discussions with GVRD and BC Telephone, we agreed that Telident offered the best alternatives."
 The Telident 9-1-1 NCS for PBXs is designed to automatically transmit full station identification information to the GVRD with all attempts to call 9-1-1 from a UBC campus extension, regardless of the duration of the call or originating campus PBX.
 Richard Hencley, CEO and president of Telident, said, "We are fully committed to demonstrating to universities, colleges, and other campus environments throughout Canada and the United States that our 9-1-1 NCS for PBXs and the 9-1-1 STS(TM) (Station Translation System) provide feature-rich connectivity to enhanced local emergency services. We at Telident commend the University of British Columbia for recognizing the importance of establishing an Enhanced 9-1-1 station identification capability, and we look forward to supporting the university in every way possible in its effort to address this need."
 Headquartered in Minneapolis, Telident is a publicly held company specializing in providing patented systems engineered to enable rural and PBX communities throughout the United States and Canada to receive Enhanced 9-1-1 communications features.
