My company is looking at replacing Cisco Communications Manager with FreePBX or another Asterisk platform.
One thing that will be required is to dynamically map and change a phone’s location for E911 purposes. Our Headquarters is in Chicago and Illinois requires E911 zones for every floor and/or 20000 sq. feet. We are currently doing this with Cisco Emergency Responder and doing ERL mappings based on Switch Memberships. Each switch port is assigned to one of our ERLs and the switches communicate with CER via SNMP. when a phone connects to a switch and the Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) updates the information the switch sends that information to CER which update’s its database. If that phone moves, or they log in to a different phone then we do not have to manually update the information.
Is this functionality currently available with FreePBX? I am not seeing anything in the documents currently to see that it is.
