Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) Service is a public safety feature that allows customers to report an emergency or request emergency assistance by dialing the 3-digit telephone number “9-1-1.” Emergency calls originated in this manner are then routed to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) based on the location from which the call was originated. In this paper, we are intended to analyze the structure of system to efficiently provide emergency service using SIP protocol-based internet telephone under IP network environment, and the assessment of its performance.
