So, the only possibility is to add a Geolocation header with a reference to a Location Server holding the location information. Also note that the proxy server must not modify existing location information, which means it is not allowed to alter existing Geolocation headers, but may add an additional header. When adding multiple Geolocation headers, there is the risk of confusing the receiver with different location information. So it’s important to mark the location information that was used for routing the call (with the “used-for-routing” header parameter).

However, this should be balanced against the savings to the national economy due to the improved emergency call system (Neumann, 2004). This savings may result from reduced death rates, reduced rehabilitation times, or shorter hospital stays after medical emergencies since the improved emergency call system might allow emergency doctors to arrive sooner on the scene of the emergency and start treatment. Besides these obvious impacts, there are also some side benefits to local and regional economies.

The next step (step 4) is to contact a mapping server, which provides the mapping between the caller’s location and the desired emergency service to the responsible PSAP. , 911). 4. 22 VoIP Emergency Calling As soon as the mapping is completed, the phone has gathered all the necessary information and is ready to place an emergency call. Note that all these tasks have to be completed before an emergency call, and not just before the call is connected, but before it is even dialed. It might be necessary to refresh location information and mapping information at the time of an emergency call, but it is essential to perform all these steps when starting up the phone – even though the user might not place an emergency call.
