Managing your addresses and endpoints

You can use the Bandwidth Dashboard to create and manage a pool of 911 addresses to be used for SIP endpoints. Each address can be associated with one or multiple SIP endpoints by identifying the endpoint and providing caller information. When a new address or SIP endpoint association is created, a new E911 Order is generated.

To start submitting an order, simply click Account and then select Dynamic Location Routing.

For a list of past E911 Orders, visit the Search Orders page. If you'd like to configure 911 Access for phone numbers, visit Configure Line Features or configure a single phone number through My Numbers.

Adding a new address to your address pool via the Bandwidth Dashboard

When adding a new address, please make sure to also add the 911 Location ID. If you don't add the Location ID, a unique Identifier will be created and must be passed at time of call.
