Frost & Sullivan expects the total NG911 market to grow from approximately $ million in 2013 to over $ million by 2020. For the purposes of Frost & Sullivan market estimates, these revenues are segmented between the two primary revenue streams: customer premise equipment (CPE) and ESInet software components.
Intrado and TeleCommunication Systems (TCS) currently provide the most comprehensive end-to-end solutions in the NG911 market, offering ESInet components, system integration (professional services), the IP Network, geographic information system (GIS), and customer premise equipment (CPE).
Frost & Sullivan expects the CPE portion of the NG911 to grow from approximately $million in 2013 to approximately $ million by 2020. Intrado currently has captured the lions share of CPE revenues.
Frost & Sullivan expects the ESInet software market to grow from nearly $ million in 2013 to over $million by 2020. ESInet contracts can either be hosted with recurring revenues or non-recurring license and installation revenues, followed by a long-tail of required software maintenance and potential recurring managed services for network monitoring.
What is Next Generation 911 (NG911)?
In contrast to the legacy ‘voice-centric’ E911 network, Next Generation 911 (NG911) will support a more diverse set of IP-based communications including text, data, photos, and video exchanges that will enhance the speed, accuracy, and preparation of first responders. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is currently working closely with key stakeholders in the public safety sector in order to ensure a seamless and cost effective transition to NG911.
The Goal of NG911
NG911 planning was initiated in 2000 by the National Emergency Number Association (NENA). The ultimate goal of NG911 is to establish national standards and implementation plans to introduce advanced 911 systems and services by replacing legacy narrowband, circuit switched 911 networks which only support voice and extremely limited data capabilities.
