Addressing 911 Failures: Cell Over Satellite Highlights the Importance of Backup Communication Systems or Business Continuity as a Service

BOSTON, MA, June 21, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Cell Over Satellite, a leading provider of emergency communication solutions, addresses the recent 911 outages in Massachusetts, emphasizing the importance of reliable and resilient emergency communication systems.

On April 12, 2024, a network issue at a State 911 Department data center caused a significant outage affecting approximately one-quarter of the state’s 911 call centers, disrupting emergency services in communities like Plymouth and Norwell​ (John Guilfoil Public Relations LLC)​​ (Yahoo)​. Just days ago, on June 18, 2024, another statewide outage occurred, impacting 911 services for nearly two hours and leaving first responders scrambling to manage emergency calls through alternative contact methods​ (Daily Voice)​​ (GovTech)​.

Cell Over Satellite’s innovative solutions ensure continuous emergency communication by leveraging satellite technology, providing a crucial backup when traditional networks fail. There is no solution for congestion, network failure, and technology failure. We can’t solve those issues, so we go around them. Our systems are designed to switch to satellite networks if terrestrial connections go down, offering robust redundancy that keeps emergency lines open when needed most. Today, you can easily turn every cell phone at a location into a powerful satellite phone and everyone will know how to reach you.

“The recent 911 outages highlight the urgent need for dependable emergency communication systems,” said Jim Gledhill, CEO of Cell Over Satellite. “Our technology ensures that 911 services remain operational, providing peace of mind to emergency responders and the public. For the last 15 years none of our protected 911 centers has ever gone offline.”

Cell Over Satellite’s solutions are essential when natural disasters or technical failures disrupt traditional communication networks. By integrating satellite technology, we enhance the resilience of emergency services, safeguarding communities against similar outages in the future.
