How do I add a 911 address on a Location and phone number?


Suzanna Reid



If you have a Unified Communications (UC) account, you can add a 911 emergency services address for a group of phone numbers on the Location. The Bandwidth Dashboard also allows you to update the 911 address on each phone number individually.

Note: Once a phone number is ordered or ported into your Bandwidth account, it'll be provisioned with the 911 address that you have set on the Location. The 911 address on the Location is the default setting. If a phone number has a different address, you can update each phone number as needed. 

How do I add a 911 address on a Location?

  1. Log into the Bandwidth Dashboard.
  2. In the top navigation bar, click Account and then select Locations.
  3. Select one the Locations on the left side of the page.
  4. Under the Unified Communications (UC) section, enter the physical address for the residence or business where the emergency services personnel should respond to a 911 call.

Note: The Caller name on a 911 call will reflect the Location name.
