    Advanced e911 - granular based on room or building

    I don't think it's urgent as using standard 911 and multiple emergency TNs works well, however great to hear that it's in the pipeline.

    Advanced e911 - granular based on room or building

    @mc_ @Darren Schreiber looks like Bandwidth.com offers what they call "dynamic location routing" where you can send additional details, https://www.bandwidth.com/9-1-1/dynamic-location-routing/ and this is from their pdf "Sophisticated 9-1-1 routing that uses PIDF-LO (Presence Information Data Format-Location Object), a standard that’s used to represent an address/ location in XML format". I found details on PIDF-LO here: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4119 and https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5139.txt @safarov Kazoo currently uses standard 911 routing where the emergency caller ID on the device, user, or account has an address in a database which is sent to emergency dispatch. There is no additional information provided, however this thread is to talk about how more details could be provided.

    Can you expand the TPI out for me or point me to their website? Thank you!

    Taxes on Hosted Kazoo

    How is everyone handling taxes through the Hosted Kazoo? My plan is to use external billing and SureTax to calculate taxes. SureTax has recommended tax professionals to help file in each state of service. What is everyone else doing that is compliant? I've noticed many providers are not federal and state compliant on VoIP taxes and e911 and I'm looking for direction from those that are.

    Advanced e911 - granular based on room or building

    Thanks Darren, this was my thinking too, glad to see it confirmed on your end. I don't think what they want is available yet, so I'm going to pitch it as they can divide up the property as granular as they want, and pay for each e911 enabled DID, and then tie that to the location. It's nice knowing it's unlikely any other vendor will be able to deliver exactly what they want.
  7. I'm answering an RFP with a request for advanced e911 location based on the port the phone is plugged into. I imagine this can be done crudely with a unique e911 number for each building, floor, room (depending on granularity) and then updating the devices using LLDP and the Kazoo API. Has anyone tackled granular e911 locations for larger buildings? I've noticed in Bandwidth newsletters that they are working on this, https://www.bandwidth.com/9-1-1/
