South Dakota picks TCS for 911 services

TeleCommunication Systems Inc., of Annapolis, a mobile communication company, announced it has been awarded a contract by the state of South Dakota to provide Next Generation 9-1-1 services. Under a $16.4 million contract, TCS will operate South Dakota’s NG9-1-1 system — an Internet protocol-based system — for five years. The system will eventually allow South Dakotans to send pictures and video to authorities during emergency calls and will support text-to-911 across the state.
