 Co-Chair of CALTEL
 Involved in Telecom Industry Since 1970’s
 Technical and Engineering Background
 San Carlos Planning Commission – 6 years
 Experienced in provisioning telecom services for First
 Responders including service for PSAPs
 CIC is headquartered in San Carlos, primarily serving
  Bay Area customers
 CIC has been a California certified CLEC since 2002
 Affiliate was founded as interconnect company selling
  PBXs and Key Systems in 1978
 Serves only business customers
 In 2007, we were 100% circuit switched, TDM
 Most customers were at a single site
 Of the customers that served more than one site with one
  PBX, most had little or no interest in having accurate E911
  location data for remote sites, even when we “educated”
 Many older PBX systems did not support sending the
  handset’s extension number information to the Central
  Office on a 911 call
    A total replacement of the PBX or a major upgrade was
     required to provide accurate location info, resulting in a large
     expense to the customer that most were not willing to

           In a Traditional Non-VoIP Setting
                                           Most PBXs can’t
   PSAP                                 connect directly with a

                                               Some PBXs can’t

415.555.2200            200 Main St. (calls                       concerned about
                        from all handsets)                              issue

        None of the decisions required to resolve these issues are
       under the control of the Carrier. It’s the customer’s choice.
 Many companies offer VoIP services, however, not all
  of the services operate the same way
 The term “hosted” denotes that the equipment needed
  to provide the service is housed off site from the
  customer (i.e. no PBX on the customer’s premise)
           NOT “Hosted VoIP”
              Example: Vonage
                                         (or Very Small
                 VoIP          Vonage
Internet                       Adapter
              Broadband                   Analog Phone(s)
            (DSL/Cable, etc)
     NOT “Hosted VoIP”
       Example: Business with a PBX


 LEC Central                      PBX
Office Switch      Traditional
                Telephone Lines
           Still NOT “Hosted VoIP”
            Example: PBX with trunking from
                    a VoIP Provider
Internet                   Adaptor
               Broadband             PBX
           NOT “Hosted VoIP”
           Example: Phone service
            from cable company
                VoIP                                  Equipment

 In 2007 we decided that VoIP and Ethernet were the
    future, and we built an all new network
   Most new customers are added to the VoIP platform
   Transition of existing customers is ongoing and the old
    platform is being retired this year
   The VoIP platform natively provides improved support
    for 911 for multi location customers
   With our Hosted VoIP product, there is no PBX. CIC
    updates the 911 ALI database for each handset based
    on the location if there is more than one building (or
    floor in many cases)

 Providing accurate 911 location data is a challenge when a
  customer has more than one premise in a building,
  multiple buildings or more than one address
 With traditional PBXs and telephone services, it may be
  costly or impossible to provide accurate location
 Carriers offer customers solutions to the problems, but
  customers must decide to subscribe to the proper services
  and have or purchase compatible Customer Premise
  Equipment such as PBXs
 All of the decisions rest with the customer, and none with
  the carrier
 Hosted VoIP, as designed and provisioned by Creative
  Interconnect Communications, solves these problems
     Each handset has its own identity
     Each handset has its own record in the ALI database
     911 calls go the correct agency
     PSAP equipment shows the correct address and suite or floor as
      applicable for that individual handset
 The customer does not incur expense for additional
  equipment or services
 CIC updates the ALI database based on information from
  the customer
