    For the first time in history, more people around the world live in cities than in rural areas. By 2030, over 60 percent of the world’s population will be living in cities. While this global migration to urban areas improves the living standards, health and financial prosperity of these citizens, it brings challenges to a city’s infrastructure, resources, security procedures and emergency response systems. Meeting these challenges is critical to the success of cities in the decades that follow.

    Key points The public safety sector must maintain pace with the wider telecommunications industry. As emergency response technologies currently in use become obsolete, it is critical that the United States modernizes its 911 system to one that is IP-based. • 21 states have indicated they have an operational ESInet in place. Approximately 1,300 PSAPs are connected (as of 2015). • 16 states have awarded an NG911 contract (as of 2015). • 17 of 30 survey respondents indicated they had plans to install Next Gen technologies over next 12 months (as of June 2016).
