Purple Communications Case Study

9-1-1 compliance for a leading Telephone Relay provider

Purple CommunicationsPurple provides the nation’s premier communication services tailored to people who are deaf or hard of hearing. In 2008, the FCC issued a mandate for TRS, which enables people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-disabled to use a text telephone (TTY) or an Internet-connected PC to communicate with hearing persons over a telephone.

Purple needed a partner to help them meet the FCC mandate for TRS. Operating in a very unique environment, Purple is very particular in selecting partners. After an extensive review of the companies in the industry, Purple selected Bandwidth.
