Windstream Enterprise (WE), a managed communications service provider, has announced its OfficeSuite UC® services are fully compliant with the federal Kari´s Law in all 50 states, the company said.
In 2019, Windstream embarked on its project to change the dial plans for all OfficeSuite UC customers to ensure compliance with Kari´s Law, which requires interconnected Voice over IP providers (VoIP) to enable dialing of emergency services, such as 911, without the need for any special prefix digit or code.
The federal law gave communications providers until Feb. 16, 2020, to become compliant. However, Windstream finished its rollout and notified its OfficeSuite UC customers in October 2019.
All OfficeSuite UC customers can dial 911 without the need to enter any prefix to obtain an outside line. All emergency calls are routed directly to the appropriate Public-Safety Answering Point (PSAP).
