E911, or Enhanced 911, is a means for wireless phone users in North America to provide more accurate location information when calling 911 emergency services. Providing this information within Virtual Office Desktop settings will allow the proper emergency services to locate you more easily when calling from your 8x8 Virtual Office services. When calling 911 from Virtual Office, emergency services will respond to the address listed in your E911 settings.
