NENA Requests Participants for ICE 6 (2/24/14)
Monday, February 24, 2014 | Comments

The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) invited vendors to participate in the upcoming next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) interoperability Industry Collaboration Event (ICE). At recent ICE events, participants tested various components and aspects of the i3 architecture; however, the various aspects were not tested simultaneously. ICE 6 will focus on comprehensive end-to-end functionality, interaction between vendor elements (external interfaces) and interoperability testing.

Some test examples are:

• Multimedia types (audio, text, video)

• Location formats (PIDF-LO civic, geo)

• Recording (media)

• Logging (events)

• Routing (SIP)

• Legacy PSAP using gateways, as well as IP-connected NG 9-1-1-compliant public-safety answering point (PSAP) customer premise equipment (CPE)

• Alternate routing (failure, policy, queue states)

• Forest guide (top level)

• SIP message formatting

The NENA i3 architectural standard for NG 9-1-1 defines functional elements, interfaces and interactions to provide end-to-end delivery of emergency calls. Many vendors provide functional elements and interfaces. To build reliable, secure, interoperable networks and NG 9-1-1 services, vendors are asked to work together to ensure the introduction of NG 9-1-1 goes smoothly.

Interested participants should respond by March 3. The ICE team will plan conference calls March 7 for an anticipated fall 2014 event. Provide all comments and responses to Brian Knueppel at brian.knueppel@oracle.com and Delaine Arnold at darnold@nena.org or contact Knueppel at 908-783-4484.
