Telix’s™ Emergency Calling Service: e911

Nomadic VoIP Service

As a current customer of Telix™ Incorporated or a future customer of Telix™, you have subscribed or will subscribe to a Voice over Internet Protocol (‘VoIP’) telephone service offered by Telix™ according to Telix’s™ terms and conditions of service (‘VoIP Service’). The VoIP Service that we provide is known as a nomadic service. This means that Telix™ allows you, the customer, to make calls from anywhere that you have access to a broadband internet service. As you know, you can simply bring your telephone devices with you and use the VoIP Service wherever you are located.

However, because of these nomadic capabilities, Telix™ is not currently able to automatically detect whether the service is being used from the registered service address or from some other location. Consequently, when a subscriber relocates, Telix™ no longer has valid 9-1-1 routing or all the information with which to process 9-1-1 calls from that customer, unless the customer updates his/her location information.

Telix’s™ 911 Service

Following the directives made by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunication Commission (‘CRTC’) pursuant to Telecom Decision CRTC 2005-21, Telix™ has, in compliance with such directives, implemented an emergency calling service or 911 service (‘911 Service’).

Once the 911 Service is activated, all calls by the customer using the 911 Service will be connected to an intermediary (such as a third party call centre), which in turn will transfer the call to the proper PSAP or emergency services agency. Based on the information provided by the customer, the intermediary will direct your call to the appropriate emergency services agency or a public safety answering point.

For a complete and full description of the 911 Service go to http://www.telix.ca and look under the FAQ e911 service details LIMITATIONS TO THE 911 SERVICE.
