e911, or commonly called Enhanced 911, is the industry standard to enable communication in case of emergency. Olafe strives to provide safe means of communication in case of emergency. Olafe will work with you to setup and activate the e911 service. Once Olafe establishes your e911 service, you will be able to dial 911 from your registered location.
Soft-phone and e911
Olafe does not offer e911 services for phone calls dialed from a soft-phone. Only registered locations with Olafe will be eligible for e911 services. If a soft-phone is used on a mobile device that has a wireless connection 911 services will be used through the currently provisioned mobile provider.
Moving the Hard Phone
Some VoIP phones configured for Olafe phone services will function from other locations. e911 services will not work if the location has not been properly registered with Olafe.
It is a violation of FCC regulations to move a phone from one physical location to another with out prior written authorization from Olafe.
