NICE Systems is pleased to announce its membership in the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Next Generation Partner Program (NGPP).

NENA is the leading professional non-profit organization dedicated solely to 9-1-1 emergency communications issues. The NGPP was created to anticipate the impact of emerging technologies on 9-1-1 services and provide an expert forum to accelerate the development of Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) systems.

NICE has been at the forefront of NG9-1-1 ready solutions for 9-1-1 centers since 2003, when it began developing the NICE Inform multimedia incident information management solution. Since its launch in 2007, NICE Inform has been deployed at hundreds of sites, including some of the world’s largest public safety departments. NICE also has broad domain expertise in adjacent NG9-1-1 technologies, including video surveillance and situation management, which it will bring to NENA’s NGPP to help accelerate progress toward Next Generation 9-1-1.
