Setting up Nomadic 911 on your company account
| RingCentral app

Note: This feature is currently in controlled release. Contact your RingCentral account manager to have this feature enabled for your account. 
 
RingCentral Office supports automatic location detection of certain devices and apps. This allows the most current location to be made available when a user dials 911 from these endpoints. Location detection is based on the application or device’s interaction with network infrastructure elements with known locations, e.g., WiFi access points, IP address ranges, and/or Ethernet switch MAC addresses.
 
Note: Along with the RingCentral Phone app, the RingCentral desktop app supports automatic location updates. The RingCentral App for web version does not support automatic location detection.

Setting up emergency response location

Emergency Response locations (ERLs)  represent the business locations where end users will be using their RingCentral service to make phone calls. The scope of an ERL depends on physical / geographic coverage needs. It should be defined to assist emergency responders in locating a 911 caller in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Typical examples
    • SOHO customer : Single ERL referring to a single address.
    • SMB customer : Single ERL referring to a single address and possible a suite # in an office building.
    • Enterprise customer: Multiple ERLs referring to buildings on a campus, buildings in different geographic locations, possible one ERL per floor in a multi-story office park.
