DSX software versions 3.44.06 and higher provide the E911 emergency dialing feature. DSX E911 simplifies 911 emergency call dialing by allowing a user to go to any telephone, lift the handset, and just dial 911. It is no longer necessary to dial an access code, press any additional keys, or wait for a line to become free. The system will disconnect a busy line, if necessary, to place the 911 call. If an access code is dialed, the 911 call will still go through.
You may have a responsibility to provide E911 dialing in certain areas and for specific applications. For example, Kari’s Law in Texas (Senate Bill 788) imposes a 911 accessibility requirement. You can meet this challenge in DSX by updating to this new software and doing a few simple programming steps.
Important! Be sure to consult with your legal advisor to determine your responsibilities in meeting the emergency dialing requirements in your area.
