Revonix E911 Emergency Service

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires Revonix to provide access to national E911 emergency services. Revonix service goes a step further offering Enhanced E911 which offers the additional benefit of being able to identify the location of the E911 call automatically. This is accomplished by providing the end user the ability to manage their location information and to change that location when the VOIP phone has moved.

Required Registration: Revonix requires registration of your service address at time of order entry.

Change of address: If you move your device to a different location you must update your 911 address information. This can be done online using the Revonix Users Portal, or, by contacting Technical Support.

Revonix can not be held liable if emergency services are dispatched to the wrong location based on the user’s location data.


Power Outages Revonix service is depends on your household or office electricity to operate. During power outages your voice service will not function and access to 911 will not be available.

Network Outages Revonix service is dependant on un-interrupted access to the Internet. If your Broadband connection to the Internet goes down your phone service and access to 911 services will be affected.

Busy Signal Like traditional 911 services it is possible to receive a busy signal or an “all circuits are busy” message when making a 911 call. This can be especially true during times of natural disaster or events such as tropical storms, earthquakes, and other regional events. It is possible during these times for 911 calls to receive a busy signal, recorded message or the call could be re-routed to an alternate public safety portal. 911 systems are not immune to failure, hardware failure, inclement weather and human error can lead to unanticipated disruptions in 911 services.

Important Information

Dialing 911 In most cases contacting an e911 emergency operator will be much the same as contacting traditional 911services using a wired phone. The address the emergency operator will receive is the location address assigned to your extension. They will not have your phone number. Instead the E911 operator will assign you a temporary telephone number. This is due to the fact that not all VOIP phones are assigned a direct number. The temporary number will allow emergency services to dial directly to your VOIP phone bypassing any company voice menu system or special call handing features you might have enabled.

If you have any questions, or, if you are having trouble updating your location via the Revonix Users Portal; please contact Revonix Technical Support by calling 207-971-4600 then select option 2 to reach a support representative.
